If you have been to my blog before, you know I love flowers in all shapes and sizes.   I love to photograph them, and really enjoy surrounding myself with live ones for their smell and their beauty.

My husband Andy knows I love flowers, and will often find a reason to send me a bouquet or bring home just a single rose. But sooner or later they die.

This year, his Valentines Day gift of flowers is sure to last a little longer.  It is one of his first glass pieces.  I think he has done quite well for a rookie exploring his new art form.
