Apothecary’s Rose Revisited

Today I’ve done some simple work with a photo I took of a blossom on the Apothecary’s Rose in our garden. It’s an ancient rose and native to the Turkish region.

I love the idea of having a rose bush in our garden with long-standing ties to this region as it seems symbolic of the ancient history of Cyprus and its links with Aphrodite, the goddess of love. And red roses, of course, are redolent of love.  I’ve worked with images of the Apthecary’s Rose quite a bit and this is my latest bit of fiddling – just using the basic images and the playing with the gizmos on PicMonkey.
