I've always loved this quote and agree with it:"I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck" by Emma Goldman. Now roses aren't my favorite flower, but this quote really says what I believe about flowers in general. Being surrounded by fresh flowers is more heavenly, in my opinion, than owning sparkly jewels.
One picture is an acrylic, abstract painting I did of a vase of vibrant roses and the rest are all photos I've taken of roses, whether in my backyard, on vacation or strolling through a local botanical garden. Enjoy!
