Roses are perennial (meaning they grow in all seasons of the year, okay, okay I know you know this stuff) of which there are over 100 types of roses from hybrids (a mixture of two things or more) to the truly wild rose. Some of the stems of these beauties have sharp thorns aimed to keep us varmints at bay as well as other plant predators. Have you ever been pricked by one?
Some of these lovely species are bred for their fragrance ("Ah, that lovely scent") is made from a mixture of rose oils - or you could call them "essential oils." This technology goes way back to the land of Persia, some eons ago before you were born.
You know the French developed this modern technique to what it is today from their centifolia rose oil and where you'll find Chanel, Serge Lutens, Estee Lauder, Guerlain and dozens of others.

How about coloring in some roses? It is almost like painting by numbers but more creative. There have been many artists who loved to paint roses. Our old friend Renoir who started his career as a ceramic artist painting roses on plates, saucers and cups amongst other ceramic stuff.
He didn't have rose coloring pages to help him. He then graduated to painting canvases' as well as being great at painting the female form. Redoute was probably the most well-known as being a prolific painter of detailed roses. Have a peek at his paintings and do some coloring in from them, you could learn a lot just be studying his works.
And who said "A rose is a rose is a rose" - Yep, Gertrude Stein from one of her poems.
"Oh, my love's like a red, red rose that's newly sprung in June" - Robert Burns
