An Iceberg rose fresh from my garden ... and that's enough of this series for now. On to other subjects, until such time as I need another 'flower' fix ... ;-)

he essence of beauty in this photograph Dulcie! I assume the experience of its power of attraction. My face is going to sink to it unconsciously, as in these beautiful and sensuous petals. The perfume of roses permeates my spirit along with the freshness that brings the water droplets! Best regards, Adela

Like a Lady at her window (or behind the window of a train) crying over her lover. Over romantic stories come with this beauty of yours - that was the idea ;)
