You love the roses—so do I.  I wish

The sky would rain down roses….

George Eliot, Roses

American Impressionist Philip Leslie Hale (1865-1931) created the haunting Crimson Rambler at his home near Boston, where he lived with wife and fellow artist Lillian Westcott Hale; his sister Ellen Day Hale also had a career in painting.  Mary Anne Evans (1819-1880), better known as George Eliot, is one of the major forces in British literature, the author of classic works such as The Mill on the FlossSilas Marner, and Middlemarch.
