Today's Flowers # 16

My friends Luiz, Denise and Pupo run the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 7GMT is the post time.

I bought the wife some pink roses with Babies Breath and took advantage of new flowers to post. The roses are a dark pink with a light pink outside. I tried a few artistic looks at the flower. This was cropped and the background colored black.
I had the above photo turned into a charcoal sketch.
This is a single rose close-up from above and cropped.
The final one is a side view close-up. Roses are neat flowers. I do hope you enjoyed them and you can see a lot of neat flowers by going on a trip through the world of flowers.

Beautiful roses and beautiful pictures. We grow roses, but I can't get pictures as good as these.

RuneE said...

I think It would have been the last one for me - I wish I had it!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

As George said, he grows hybrid-tea roses. So--I'm BLESSED to have roses on our table 3 out of the 4 seasons.. He sneaks a new rose blossom into the house and puts it in a vase on our table most every morning to surprise me. I love pictures of roses, but having the REAL THING is the best... Great pictures though!!!!

Jack and Joann said...

Oh, we are getting romantic this weekend! Good for you and your wife. I love that deep, deep lipstick pink color.

I chuckled at Cathy's comment: "..you are getting a lot of mileage from one bouquet!"
