Artist's Description

The Rose is the flower of love.

It was created by Chloris, the Greek goddess of flowers, but of a lifeless body of a nymph which she found one day in a clearing in the woods. She asked the help of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, who gave her beauty; Dionysus, the god of wine, added nectar to give her a sweet scent, and the three Graces gave her charm, brightness and joy. Then Zephyr, the West Wind, blew away the clouds so that Apollo, the sun god, could shine and make the flower bloom. And so the Rose was born and was immediately crowned Queen of the Flowers."

" Quoted from Pickles, Sheila. The Language of Flowers (New York: Harmony Books, 1989).

Work created using a Nikon D90 and a Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro and a small torch to create the mystical crown atop our “Queen Of Flowers”
