Several years ago a neighbor friend gave me a wonderful Antique Rose Bush that we have enjoyed year after year with its never-ending floral displays.

I, too, love the beautifully soft light. This is a wonderfully captured rose image, Donald - a wonderful shade of pink with each petal tipped in a soft white - perfectly presented against a contrasting dark b/g...lucky you to have such generous neighbors! #10152548

Thank you Val, this is one of many rose bushes that I try to maintain for my wife. She just loves roses and looks forward to every morning sitting on the patio to enjoy them while having our morning coffee. #10152835
