A friend brought me in these amazingly beautiful roses from her garden.
They are voluptuous and blousey, and smell beautiful.
In a week of sadness, I'm sure she won't mind that I've used the trickery of photography to dull their beauty.
It seems somehow appropriate.
My thoughts are with the Coasters.
Their reputation for resilience and toughness must be marshmallow fragile right now.
And my flowers are for the incredible CEO of Pike River Mining, Peter Whittal.
His leadership and humanity amongst so much pain and sadness have made this tragedy all the more palpable for the rest of us.
