Very nice allegory--I could almost smell the beautiful roses.

Be careful of "it's"--with an apostrophe, it means "it is". You wanted "its" without an apostrophe in several places. And I think you could leave off the paragraphs of explanation--a good allegory, like this one, explains itself.

I enjoyed this allegory - it was nicely done. I think it didn't really require the "explanation" at the end - at least not as extensive as it was. Nice images.

I enjoyed reading the article. The parable format was used well and I could easily imagine the roses in my mind.

Excellent and unique way to approach this week's topic.

Good, solid entry. Should be in the top five.

May God bless.
