...is still a rose! Richard gave me this huge, gorgeous rose for Valentine's Day. I have kept it in the bathroom as it is less likely to be mauled by my cats who love fresh flowers.
A week and a half later, check it out! A few of the petals have darkened somewhat but it is still amazingly beautiful. Some of the greenery hasn't been so lucky. I discovered both Oreo and Cookie chewing at those leaves. But that rose. Wow!
