The world well knows, yet none knows well, to shun the heaven that leads us to this hell. - Shakespeare's Sonnets
Seeing as how I minored in English Literature (Boy! That got me a lot of job offers!) I feel somewhat qualified to interpret this quote.
I'm pretty sure Shakespeare was talking about the trials & tribulations (mostly trials) of growing roses indoors.
Micro Mini Roses are becoming a huge passion of mine. Those by any other name, aren't nearly as sweet.
Are they worth the effort?
To manage the tending of indoor miniature roses, all you need is...
A sunny window,
1 incredible amount of patience,
and 4 nimble hands.
3 hands are required to shoo away the swarm of bugs surrounding these beauties.
Use the 4th hand to gingerly snap photos.
Happy Valentine's Day.
I prefer to whine and complain about houseplant bugs. If you're the proactive type, you might like this solution: Clean Air Gardening.
