Valentine Roses

Last year, my daughter came home for a visit, and with her, the roses her boyfriend bought for her for Valentine's Day.  They provided lots of photo opportunities.

By a window with mid afternoon light.  I wish it had been warmer light.  You can see they are getting just a little old by the tips of the petals.

About ten days later, under tungsten light, when it was dark outside, a different look altogether.  I think that's dust on the top.  I purposely left them to dry out so I could take the petals off for her and save them.

I have some of my own Valentine flowers from this year; tiny baby roses.  I took some pictures of them with my  macro lens, but I need to get a few more.
