1) “The Beauty of the Rose is considered a medicine. Healing through sight, through the act of looking with all veils swept aside.” quote from Nadeem Aslam’s book, “A wasted Vigil”
2) Won’t you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you. 
-Richard Brinsley Sheridan

It was great to visit rose garden at Parnel, Auckland, New Zealand, three days ago. They are at the highest bloom and its riot of colours and of variety. The surrounding grounds are equally serene and paradise like.

نازکی اس کے لب کی کیا کہیےؑ

پنکھڑی اک گلاب کی سی ہےٌ

Meer Taqi Meer.
what can I say about her lip’s tenderness?. say it is but a rose’s petal.
