It is chilling down in New England, and we know that it will get colder. So we are in thanks with this bold rose, the ruby radiating makes us remember the past Summer and when it was warmer, and the roses were in bloom. Ah, you have reminded us of warm weather to come back to us - someday...

I do like the palette knife one. Reminds me of when I used to paint with a palette knife. It's a lovely rose in a nice setting.

When the rose opens
it greets all the neighborhood
with a crimson smile.
