A Rose is a Rose is a Rose

In the back of my mind there was this sentence “A Rose is a Rose is a Rose”, immediately connecting with this image. Still I was not sure where from I knew the words, thoughts targeting Antoine de Saint Exyperie’s Little Prince… Until google and wikipedia corrected me, nominating Gertrude Stein as the author.

But this rose looks withered already in august, which is a bit unusual. The explanation is (again) the long rainfalls which made the water level rise so much that this rose stood in the water for some weeks, ruining the roots and make the leaves and blossoms fade much too early.

Still this rose is a rose is a rose…
