How to Send Someone a Rose With Text
When you can't send a real rose, send a text one instead. (Rose rose image by focusart.fr from Fotolia.com)

If you have no artistic skills yet have a desire to share an artistic moment, send someone an ASCII rose. ASCII images consist entirely of text. Computers generate them, and talented artists draw them using computer keyboards. Roses symbolise many different things, from friendship to love. To send a text rose to someone special, visit an ASCII website, capture a flower and share it via e-mail.

This will improve the quality of the computer-generated picture.
