I couldn't agree more.
Here, on my table is a profusion of roses in pinks, reds, whites and red tinged ivory's in an antique silver teapot that belonged to my Great Aunt and Uncle.
I don't know whether nice people tend to grow roses
or growing roses makes people nice.

Vintage ruby flash, Kings Crown thumprint tumblers pair well with wine glasses etched with a single rose. I found the wine glasses for a quarter a piece at a thrift shop! I placed tealight candles in each ofthe wine glasses.
"For, if I wait", said she, "Till time for roses be-
For the moss rose and the musk rose,
Maiden blush and royal dusk rose
What glory then for me
In such a company?"
Roses plenty, roses plenty,
And one nightingale for twenty?
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning~
A friend gave me a napkin folding book years ago with instructions on how to fold this rosebud, and today I found a video on YouTube to show you just how easy it is. I've included it at the bottom of my post.
