Weekend Snapshot: A Rose of a Day

IMG 7448

I took a break from the housework on Friday afternoon when I noticed the sunlight--a novel and welcome sight at the end of a rainy week--illuminating these rose petals. Sometimes the little things are celebrations all by themselves.

  3. I'm not sure which to say: that the sunlight did an amazing thing with the rose, or that the rose did a wonderful thing with the sunlight. Either way, you did a wonderful job with the camera! The rose and sunlight are a beautiful team.

    Thanks for that lovely photo Sandy, and Happy Mother's Day!
