Roses for Valentine's Day


Roses for Valentine's Day.

The petal maze of a rose seems unending, spiraling into infinity.


Hues of magenta wrap around a rosebud to encapsulate a magical surprise...




 A blush of pink unfolds a sense of mystery.


And when all is revealed, an enigma remains.


Life is the flower for which love is the honey. --Victor Hugo

  1. Roses are so beautiful. There's a reason these flowers have captivated so many people for so long.

    I'm so glad you posted that Victor Hugo quote. Do you know that I got that in my fortune cookie not long ago? I kept it because I thought it was a nice sentiment, but I'm glad to have a real attribution for it now.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

    1. I am sure if I dedicated an area for a large rose garden, I still would not be able to have all varieties. I like surprises...

  13. Has a guy ever given you mixed signals?

    One minute he’s crazy about you and the next minute you have no clue if he ever wants to see you again?

    And it’s especially hard when there’s something special between you and you have no idea what went wrong.

    I assure you it’s nothing that you did.

    In fact, he may even care about you a great deal and still not be able to stop himself from acting this way.

    But why does this happen?

    There’s one BIG reason why men do this...

    And I discovered this eye opening video that will shed some light on this bizarre behaviour.

    Insert subject line here and link it to: <=========> Your ex won’t be able to resist?

    It all comes down to a missing “secret ingredient” that not one in a thousand women knows about...

    And it’s the biggest factor that determines whether a man just “likes” you...

    ...or if he sees you as “The One.”

    You see, this “secret ingredient” is so important to a man that no matter how attracted to you he is, or how strong your chemistry is...

    If it’s missing, he’ll never be able to truly give his heart to you...

    And he will always have an unshakeable urge to seek out a woman who has this one “secret ingredient.”

    Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> The difference between “like” and “love” (most women miss this)

    On the other hand, when you know this powerful “secret ingredient”...

    ...you won’t believe how effortless, passionate and bulletproof your relationship can be.

    Trust me, this is going to blow you away.

    Discover it here: ==> Men fall in love with women who have this “secret ingredient”

    Thanks again.
