55 - Weeds and Roses

Season after season, my flowers bloomed. Then one spring, they didn't. I started watering the weeds instead. They were a sure thing. A few of my roses bloomed in spite of my neglect, so I thought all was well. But it wasn't. I was watering my weeds while wishing for my rose garden to prosper.

If you must have roses, then you've got to be merciless to weeds, I guess. Personally, I've backed into enough thorns to consider those bushes weeds.
