The Beauty of a Rose

I find that many things that surround me inspire me to be creative so I thought I would share something with you all.
I bought some flowers last week and they were headed for the refuse bin this week and when I turned the vase this little rose was still quite beautiful I admire the make up of nature, the texture of each petal has a velvety appearance that make you want to touch it.
It got me started on thinking how clever this rose was to have such a beautiful bloom and yet such a prickly stem to protect it's growth.
If you click on the picture below it will enlarge the photograph for you
