Rose for Mothers Day

Rose for Mothers Day
Originally uploaded by linfrye.
Although Valentine's Day may have been created by the modern media, flowers have always been a gift from my father to my mom on Valentine's Day. With his passing many years ago, this celebrated remembrance has been relegated to us, her children. And so, in keeping with the day, as well as to brighten her spirits, in my errands for her, I picked up a pink rose, something my dad would have done.

She was tickled pink -- her favorite color.

Lin, I love the way the leaves and the roses form a pattern along with the handwriting, and the patterns fill the page. It looks like lovely a Victorian valentine.
