A rose is a rose

A woman would run through fire and water for such a kind heart.
-- from The Merry Wives of Windsor/William Shakespeare
Today's blossom du jour from my virtual flower show @ Today's Flowers are the three gorgeous deep pink roses Dave left for me on Valentine's Day. Heavenly fragrant and slow to open, they've touched my heart deeply.

Pick up a bouquet for your Monday at Luiz Santilli's meme, Today's Flowers.

Dave has a good taste, for these roses are exquisite! Very beautiful. Yes, a rose is a rose... What's in a name!

These are indeed beautiful! They are opening really nicely.
You visited me and saw my roses as well. What truly makes me smile is that my hubby's name is also Dave.
We have a couple of sweet ones I'd say. :)

So beautiful, and one of the hardest things to paint. People often pass over the still life paintings with flowers and fruits, but they are beautiful and difficult subjects. It's the flowers unique imperfections that make it authentic and beautiful, and that is hard to capture.
