She stared out the window, at her husband, watering the front garden; a garden where no roses grew. Once, she had compared herself to a friend. I am a rose garden, she had said, and you a cactus. Where you can survive on what little moisture you find, I require frequent watering.
Now, the ground had baked and cracked; the roses wilted, and died.
