When The Roses Bloom Again

I have always considered myself a lavender girl, but recently, the warm scent of rose leaves me with an extra coat of comfort for the approaching chilly months. I just learned that most roses bloom from June until the first frost, and the Knockout Rost (pictured above) could potentially survive a few months of snow. This iconic flower blooms more than just beauty, but also notes of inspiration to withstand nature's harsh obstacles. So arm yourself with a few rose products this winter and maybe we too can uphold the bitter frost that inevitably awaits us.

Track 5: When The Roses Bloom Again
They were strolling in the gloaming
Where the roses were in bloom
A soldier and his sweetheart brave and true
And their hearts were filled with sorrow
For their thoughts were of tomorrow
As she pinned a rose upon his coat of blue

Do not ask me love to linger
When you know not what to say
For duty calls your sweetheart's name again
And your heart need not be sighing
If I be among the dying
I'll be with you when the roses bloom again

When the roses bloom again
Beside the river
And the mockingbird has sung his sweet refrain
In the days of auld lang syne
I'll be with you sweetheart mine
I'll be with you when the roses bloom again

Mid the rattle of the battle
Came a whisper soft and low
A soldier who had fallen in the fray
I am dying, I am dying
And I know I'll have to go
But I want to tell you
Before I pass away

There's a far and distant river
Where the roses are in bloom
A sweetheart who is waiting there for me
And it's there I pray you take me
I've been faithful, don't forsake me
I'll be with her when the roses bloom again
