Back to say congratulations on your win! Sitting here with a band aid on my index finger after going a couple of rounds with one of my rose bushes. I can empatize with you on rose wounds!

Thank you Sam, but aren't they worth it for a bit of blood. We had to get rid of a lot which was a shame. Tom

Tom this is such a pleasant haiku with your words painting the fragrance of roses in summer garden. Really soothing words. Congratulations on your win. Keep writing and inspiring. Blessings! :)

Thank you very much Aditi, beautiful flowers that you have to handle with care, they've pricked me many a time, but they smell beautiful. Tom

In an English Rose Garden (' never promised you a 'Rose Garden') by Lynn Anderson who died recently but you managed to made an English Rose Garden sound heavenly and vividly splendid with your poetic talent Tom. Good luck in the contest. Blessings, Jennifer.

Thank you Jennifer, I remember that song well, I didn't know she'd passed away. We have a few roses but nothing like the picture. Tom

Tom, in my estimation, there's no garden like an English rose garden. You have brought to life the sights and scents so well. Congrats on your win in the summer haiku contest ~ John

Both offerings are lovely and project delightful images, Tom. I envy your English gardens where lush greenery and multicoloured flowers are the centre of attraction. Regards // paul
