Rosiers in Orange
Please excuse this extra email in your inbox this morning... I hope this photo of a ravishing "roseburst" (taken yesterday, just outside the orthodontist's office in the French town of Orange...) will make up for that!

le rosier (leuh rhoh-zee-ay) noun, masculine

    : rose bush, rose tree
