Marion got this for Christmas from her pen-friend in Hamburg - a long-term , long distance friendship if ever there was one. She first went to visit Petra about 2 weeks after our first date in 1976 and they've been in touch ever since!
The rose is preserved in some cunning way so it still looks and feels fresh.
