Pretty in Pink  by Michael Matthews

Bridal Pink rose from my sister’s front yard flowering in the summer of 2009.

Photographed with a Canon 400D.

I’d like to dedicate this flower to Jane McGrath, the wife of Aussie Test cricketer Glenn McGrath, whose brave fight against breast cancer was an inspiration to many of us. Jane passed away in June, 2008.

For those of my friends & viewers from countries where the sport of cricket is not played, you might like to have a look at the website to see what all the fuss is about.

    This is beautiful Michael – its actually perfect in all ways, colour and composition. Jane McGrath would have been most impressed that you dedicated it to her and for what she now stands for – a beautiful dedication indeed!!

  • Thanks Bev. I had the cricket on today while I was on here & it seemed like a fitting thing to do. I’m glad you like it. It has become number 5 in my most favoured list in just 24 hours.
