One Single Rose

(click for a bigger image)
This is one single rose from the bouquet of two dozen roses Hubby gave me for my Valentine Birthday last week. My Hubby has been giving me flowers since our dating years. Sometimes a single rose from the gas station on his way home from work. Once when I was in college he was away working during a college work study program. He came to see me and brought a dozen roses with him from almost five hundred miles away. Yes, I know, I am a lucky lady.
Today is our son Chris' birthday. Happy Birthday Chris! We love you!
Oh yes, Chris brings his lovely wife a bouquet of flowers once a week. He had a good mentor. :)

Linking to Macro Monday and Ruby Tuesday 2.

What a neat tradition, Carletta... My hubby grows beautiful roses for me --so I'm lucky also. I think both of our hubbies are 'keepers' don't you????
Hugs,
Betsy

Such a beautiful depth of red in the rose! Gorgeous!

And I must thank you for posting the background detail of Element boutiques on RT2! I was unaware of the history! You mention that the logo has 2 white circles on a red background! Yet this logo in Melbourne is all red! I wonder if it varies slightly for a reason!
