Grown in Green Valley, AZ with my father-in-laws TLC. :0)
Who could resist a shot of such a beautiful rose!?!
I changed what little bg there was to the hot pink color as it complimented it more.
I added a touch of light pink diffuse glow to in PS7.
Then added the Melancholytron filter in FP to create the softness around the edges.
