In autumn, many roses in Southern California reach their second blaze of glory. This pink beauty grows in a patio edging and smells as good as it looks! The card is perfect for any loving occasion from anniversary or birthday to valentine or wedding! (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/5.6, 1/125 sec., ISO 320).

Dedicated to Valentine’s Day and those whose love makes every day a Valentine.
