dearest my sweet
the love of my life

you never forget me
never leave me in pain
you call me most days
just to check I’m ok

with love I thank you
and I want you to know
I would lovingly give you
every rose that I grow

The name of this rose is ‘Dearest’.
This photo is in memory of my mother. It was a favourite rose of hers.

    This a SENSATIONAL capture Clare!!! the most totally PERFECT focus and dof and composition – I feel kind of stupid talking about ‘technical reasons’ why this might be ‘good’ when this image is just simply so beautiful – and I am NOT a ‘rose lover’ :)))

  • Thank you so much K :)) You may become a rose lover one day :))+
