Loveliest of lovely things are they On earth that soonest pass away. The rose that lives its little hour Is prized beyond the sculptured flower.~ William Cullan Bryant
This rose was cut today from a plant Rich and I have been moving for about 5 years to different locations around our home . It never wanted to bloom. This year it did, but only one bloom so far.
The original photo below was edited using Microsoft Digital Image Suite 2006 (If you can believe it). Usually I upgrade every other year or so, but this one works just dandy.
