Gift of Grace




Long, long ago in the year 2011, a beautiful rose plant was given as an unexpected gift. The rose, a new release, is called "Gift of Grace".




Although it lived in the midst of busyness, it found time to bloom this month, a gorgeous pink flower on a long stem.







The rain came and it bowed its head to keep its delicate face fresh and dry.




The sun came out and the light danced on pretty raindrops.







The back of the rose became even more beautiful than the front. 
Sometimes it's the details we overlook which radiate the greatest beauty as we dance this gift of grace called life.....

Róża jest piękna, a jej zdjęcia bez kropli i z kroplami deszczu są wspaniałe. Pozdrawiam ciepło.*** Rose is beautiful, and her image without and with drops of rain drops are great. With best wishes.
