The Rose!

The Rose! Symbol of love and beauty, honor and faith.

I don’t love roses like I love tulips, but this particular rose, a remnant from a Christmas bouquet, surprised me. When all other plant matter in the bouquet had died, this single red rose was just entering its prime. It was aging gracefully, gesturing elegantly. I rescued it and took a few photographs to preserve it. February is the perfect time to pull out just such a treasure, so here it is, in time for Valentine’s Day.
