Rose Blossoms Big As Cabbages, Santa Cruz, CA, 2008

This big blossom is one of four or five behemoths of blooming produced by the rose bush out front strictly on its own initiative, in accordance with the principles of Irish Relaxive Gardening, the bush assiduously denied the intercessionary aid of any of the commonly applied dusts, emoluments or sprays known to anyone who attends at all to roses, but left instead out there by the sidewalk on its own to use what rain it can to grow as big as it's going to get in the soil provided for it by whoever it was who put it there in the first place.
