Every Valentine’s Day Marks buys me a dozen roses. Red, pink, white or yellow. By far my favorite are the two toned roses he bought for me this year. Creamy yellow with a hint of amber around the edges of the petals. As the roses themselves were, sadly, going to die, I decided that I would take just one and capture it to forever serve as a memory of his love for me and the beauty of this lovely flower.
