Last summer after Ashlyn (my three-year-old granddaughter) watered one of my pots of moss roses, she asked if she could have one of the hot pink flowers. After I picked one for her, I playfully tucked the stem of the tiny moss rose behind her ear and called her my beautiful flower child. Ashlyn giggled and then wanted to check out how she looked. She beamed when she saw the flower in her hair; said she wanted to keep it there forever, though it had already wilted badly. I told her the moss rose would get very sad if it had to be away from the other flowers for long, but that I could take pictures of how it looks in her hair, and she could have them forever. She was all for that. This is one of the shots I took before we put the dying flower back with the other moss roses.

    She is adorable! You can get lost in those big dark eyes. Her expression of pleasure is evidence of how happy she is to wear the moss rose. So sweet and innocent. Excellent portrait.
