Hi Milton, Once the storm is over, those rose petals will be perky once again. Your imagery makes for a strong ending. - Gail

Thank you so much, Avery, but I have seen roses decimated by a heavy storm many times.

Thank you, Gershon. They know the hard storm is going to beat them down. And this is what happens!
