Tag - Desktop Wallpaper [Updated]

I've been tagged by RainingHeaven to display my desktop wallpaper.
Below here are the instructions to join this stuff:

First..Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun.

Second...How to do a desktop screen shot?

For Windows users:
[1] Going to your desktop and pressing the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key).
[2] Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V).
[3] If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.

For MAC users: Press [ Apple] [ Ctrl ] [ Shift ] and [ 3 ]

Third...Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of icons. Things like that.

This is my wallpaper:
[Click on the image to for a larger better view]

My desktop wallpaper is a solarized version of the picture on the left.
I was using 2 monitors, hence there are 2 black rose there on my wallpaper when I use the print screen function. The reason I converted it to a black background is because I'm using a CRT monitor as the 2nd monitor. [Fact: Power consumption can be reduced by as much as 80% if a black background was used on a CRT monitor.]
I'm doing my part to save electricity. Have you?

Update: A request from mr.x to create wonderful magical story behind this rose. There you go, mr.x. Request granted. Follow this link to read the story behind this valentine rose.
Any other request?
