This week, I’m introducing you to my characters of my book. This is Miki. Note her long, elegant stem. And see how her bloom is just now starting to open up? I think this is my favorite of the roses I’ll show you this week. I find this image very sophisticated and though provoking. The artist did a beautiful job based on my description. The curved stem draws your eyes along its length, kinda like a maze. It seems easy to get lost there, and difficult to truly discover all this rose's subtleties.
