I said that usually I was the only one who got to see that beauty. He asked if he could shoot the process, and I agreed. I put his beautiful photographs into a slideshow:

It goes really well with Enya's "China Roses". I'd recommend opening this link in a new tab before playing my video: China Roses

And a few of the photos on their own, including my photos of the resulting bouquet of a half dozen steel roses:
