That's really beautiful...Since I've been searching for the lost files these days.. I found one of my rose image..I was 'heart broken'..the tree was killed by the builders since, the scent of the rose was beautiful and irreplaceable. It was an old rose, before I arrived. Nowadays, the roses are designed for look at.. so they look nice, but they don't smell anything much...it's nice to learn that there are still some beautiful and fragrant roses left in the world..Smile
