Oh my! I've heard that quote numerous times yet it never fails to leave me convulsed in laughter. Thank you for helping with begin the day with a good belly laugh.
Awww....And yet I would think being good against a wall implies stunning beauty;to be in full view and admired in daylight, not in bed, in the dark...
Thanks Jennifer, Rosie and Anna, I had never heard the quote before, an unexpected treat from Mrs Roosevelt. I also love reading rose catalogs, between how the roses got their names and their habits, it's a vastly entertaining read. Never seen a description quite like this though.
I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
