On Mother's Day, one of my gifts was a Star Rose bush. It was a thoughtful gift. Greg bought it as a way for me to honor my late Father's memory (My dad grew roses along time ago.....)
Well, the rose bush is flourishing. As well as it can in the mind-numbing heat....it truly is lovely. It's bright, vibrant and oh so colorful....
So if it's colorful, why did I turn it to B&W...? Because looking at the roses makes me a little sad. My dad has been gone for 10 years and I still cry about it. His death left a hole in my heart....It's important to remember the good things, like roses.
