The Blue Roses

  • Regular price $16.95


Every spring Rosalie, a Native American girl, and her grandfather sow tiny seeds that blossom into bright flowers. A red rosebush, planted under Rosalies bedroom window when she was born, is later joined by pink and yellow ones to make a sunset, Papa tells her. Rosalie asks for a blue bush, to represent the sky, but Papa explains that roses do not come in blue. When he dies the following winter, Rosalies blue rosebush comes to her in her dreams as a symbol of love, memory, and transcendence.
