Artist's Description

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.
