The roses in my yard are in their full glory this week, A Month too early I wanted to photograph them so that they don’t look like images from a romantic garden catalogue. For this one I chose the the late afternoon light. I put the rose on the window sill next to a small stone I zoomed in with Camera+ even then I still needed to crop to bring the pair close up. This was framed with a vignette.
These are often called Mary’s rose said to have healing properties. I leave the hips on the plant all year because they are just as dramatic as the flowers.
I counted 7 rose bushes in full bloom in the backyard this morning. The heat over the weekend opened these buds. A fine show but a little sad they’re like guest that arrive too early for a party, great to see them, but I’m just not ready for them.
Let me know what you think
