Happy Birthday, dear Ginnie!

 

    

The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose -
But were always a rose.

 
Robert Frost

This is beautiful, Philine. Thank you very much and yes we do have plans to make this a memorable birthday for the birthday-girl smile.

Oooo.. now these are so pretty. I love the subtle colour variations on the edges of the petals. I also like the size of the vase... that would make a fine wine glass smile
Philine: "a fine wine glass"! Haha! Then you might look like Ginnie today on Astrid's birthday- image! Many thanks, Alan, and enjoy your bike day as leader as I read!

I do like the glass vase Philine.
Philine: Me, too , as I saw this bunch of flowers in this glass vase in our sweet hotel in Sloten/NL, I immediately thought of Ginnie. Many thanks, Chad!
Nicely done for your fine friend.
Philine: Yes, she is a fine human being. Many thanks, Mary!
Very appropriate roses - and Frost is one of my favourite poets, and the only one I've seen in person reading his poetry.
Philine: What a wonderful experience! Thank you kindly, Prof. Wilson!
