Roses: Blossoms and Thorns

There are lots of things you could say about this.

My humble submission:

Do you see the rose for its beautiful blossom?


Or for the thorns below?

Really, I'm wondering. When it comes to an actual rose, I see the bloom. Neil sees the thorns. With metaphorical roses, I think we see things the other way around.

They were. Neil doesn't like roses because of the thorns. We have a few rose bushes in the yard that he keeps threatening to tear out!
