The Rosette Nebula

Here finally is the answer to a lover's seemingly unattainable request for the stars in the sky. So when the question arises "But HOW MUCH do you love me...?" You can confidently say more than all the stars in the sky- and point towards a picture like this of the Rosette Nebula. Shown here is an "organic" interpretation of this famous celestial gem with both flower and (with imagination) extended stem.
