o'keeffe rose

The penultimate piece of O'Keeffe commemoration ... Much earlier this summer, I noted how the garden of the Research Center has been beautifully and carefully planted with all the flowers that appear in O'Keeffe's paintings.  I can't quite find a painting of a rose that looks just like this one (though no doubt it exists - the garden planners knew what they were doing).  But the folding petals - well, yes.  It seems fairly apt that they are slightly wilting and browning at the edges, given how hard I've been working these last few weeks (when, ok, not driving to LA).
