My Mutant Redhead

For Valentine’s Day I got a dozen roses for my wife — half red and half white. (The roses, not the wife.) I’ve never used this florist before, but I surely will again. These things are some of the most gorgeous roses I’ve ever seen. Over the last couple days they’ve been opening up, and now the open buds are quite huge.

As one of the buds opened up, I soon realized I’d got a bonus in my bouquet. One of the roses appears to be a double-budded mutant, as you can see here. Note that there are two centers to the swirls of petals.

That’s all. I thought it was kinda cool.
