LOVELY Sep 21, 2005
What a gorgeous little book. All the rose lovers I know are getting one for Christmas this year. I first discovered it at an exclusive gift shop in a high-end mall, but resisted the urge to purchase, assuming it would cost far less at this site. I was right. Almost everyone who sits on my couch instinctively picks up the book and looks through it. Quick hits of all things rose (poems, lyrics, stories).
