“That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”



Another rose from yesterdays outing (is it really an outing when it is your own backyard?).

About the quote:

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” is a quotation from Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, it is meant to say that the names of things do not matter, only what things are. The line is said by Juliet in reference to Romeo’s house, Montague, which would imply that his name means nothing and they should be together.

    • thanks you, the roses are very pretty. It’s a bit strange to have them blooming year round, but i’ll take it! -Kim

  3. Definitely an outing. i love the rose and the quote. I had an English teacher in H.S and spent almost an entire year studying Shakespeare.

    There is plenty of beauty to be found in your own backyard if you take the time to look.
