More Than Intuition, So Much More

© all rights reserved. The Intuition Rose is a stunning display of many reds, some almost pink, and marked with stunning, deep striated changes in the colors. For the most part, it can only be ordered from a florist.


Denis gave Carolyn Intuition Roses for Mother's Day, just before he finally was ready to let go of his battle with ALS, two years ago. Last year, Carolyn managed to secure a maiden Intuition Rose, just shy of Denis' first birthday celebration held without him. It survived minus19 degrees this past winter, and just in time for Father's Day this year, it has bloomed--the first bloom. This particular Intuition rose plant seems to understand it has a lot to live up to.


This is now the second Father's Day, Carolyn and her family have celebrated their memories of Denis. He was a giant of a man in so many ways. He loved pumpkin pie, his favorite. And every year on Carolyn's birthday, he would make her a sour cream raisin pie, her favorite. This June sees the second anniversary of his departure from this world. His spirit very much lives on, in all who knew and loved him.


This may seem a strange interpretation of this stunning and unusual red rose. But it is for memory's sake. For a love, far stronger than death.


This is for Carolyn.
