Rose in a blender

This is my favorite Rose. I have long forgotten the name of it. It looks as if the artist has splashed his white canvas with red paint.

What a beautiful flower! Beauty will save the world, as wrote Dostoievsky before going nuts.

Dostoevsky went nuts because even he had trouble following the character names in his books. Perhaps it is easier to read his works for you. But, western lit usually sticks with one name. Dostoevsky and the other Russian writers allow their characters surnames, tittles, nicknames, formal names. Bad Karma from the western world for character names is what drove him over the eadge.

Of course I like Dostoevsky other than the naming issue.

that's a rose? on first look, i thought it was a camalia. my mom has several camalia shrubs (more like small trees, actually!), and one of them has flowers with this very same messy paint job.

this rose is so beautiful, does it have a nice scent as well?

I have never noticed the scent.

Interesting, but very bright flowers don't usually have a strong scent.

At least Dostoevsky allowed for variety in naming his characters. Western fiction is very uncreative in that respect.
