[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Twenty nine years ago my Mom passed away at the age of 57. Since then, on May the 20th each year I always feel depressing and missing her. We, her children, are still talking about Her.

Today, I take a day off, and all I've done is looking at roses in my yard and thinking of her and finally I saw this rose and it brought tears to my eyes.

Thanks for viewing

A beautifully done tribute with your finely detailed composition. The droplets add a fine element to your overall image.

Oh HienVy I am so sorry for your loss and for your sadness. And this is a perfect tribute, with the droplets of water representing your tears. They say time heals all wounds but after 29 years you honor the memory of a special woman. My condolences to you and your family. TFS, Lori
