Today's Flowers # 43

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 4 GMT is the post time.

Today I wanted to show my daughter "D" rose bush. The roses are a salmon and yellow color. She has this rose hidden along the garage and I think it should have a more prominent place among her flowers. Maybe it would be better at my house. what do you think?
The rose has a beautiful mixture of colors and it shows really well.
I think this shot of the flower is a real winner with the bud next to the full bloom. I am very happy with this shot.
I do hope you enjoyed the blooms and want to see what others have shown.

That is an unusual color - and a lovely rose! And I agree with you, this rose should not be hidden in any way!

Awesome, Tom... Imagine 48 of them in your yard (with George doing all of the upkeep of course)... I feel like I'm in heaven!!!!!

Love the colors of your daughter's rose.

OK, I'm jealous...they're beautiful and I love the color. I tried roses but didn't have much luck. I think its to humid here in south Florida.

Beautiful roses, and so nice to show your daughter. Thanks for visiting me last week via Today's Flowers.

Nice Tom, looks like you have some rose envy. We've got a great park in Columbus, called the Park of the Roses, that previously hosted a rose festival around mid-june. The recession has killed the festival this year, but the gardens there are still tended and have amazing collections of roses. Any size, type, shape, color. I hope to get there sometime soon.

I do agree Tom. It will look MUCH nicer in your garden. :) A beautiful rose, but then, which one isn't? :)

Arija said...

You are so right, a bud or a bee always enhance a head on shot. Nice rose, what's stopping you putting in a few dozen in your garden as well?

aguthrieimages said...

I think the last one with the bud is a winner as well, the color is awesome!

Old Wom Tigley said...
