Macro: Roses

I visited the botanical garden Monday, it was warm for a change! There was still a bit of color left in the rose garden, sharing it with you today.

Please pardon the appendages, it was a windy day.

    • Except for what’s left of the autumn leaves, these provided the most color, Theresa. I found an area of the garden where the yellow-rumped warblers hang out. They were a busy bunch!

    • Ah, yes, they did smell nice, Georgette. It wasn’t as overpowering with fewer blossoms. I was proud of myself for making the effort to get over there within a short window of time before the rain came. A little bit of a break was better than none.

    • I’m glad they were still in bloom so I could share them with you, Geraldine. We had grey and dreary today, tomorrow we have a nor’easter in the forecast–lots of wind/rain–possibly bringing snow to some areas to the north of us.

  1. The yellow rose of Texas. It’s my favorite. That song reminds me of Texas as does the yellow rose in your photo. Did you know Dallas suffered a small earthquake a few days ago? The epicenter was very close to the building I lived in when I was there. It was 3.3 on the Richter scale. Now one was injured and no significant damage to property. Blessings to you, Patti…

    • Yellow roses were my grandmother’s favorite, Carol Ann. I hadn’t heard about the earthquake near Dallas. I’m glad there is good news for the residents. Do you still have friends you keep in touch with there? Is your brother still in that area? Blessings to you.

      • Yes, my brother is still there and I have friends there, too. A friend and I were sending text messages back and forth when the quake happened. Her bed shook a lot. My brother’s lamps wobbled and pics on the walls went crooked. He said there was a loud noise like thunder but lower in tone and he thought a tree fell on the house. When he went out to look, his neighbors were out all down the road doing the same thing. Even though it was a small quake, it was quite an experience.

    • That’s the story over here, except the Lorapetalum has those fringy, pink flowers, and a yellow daisy-like flower came back. I thought it was gone, cut it back, now it’s blooming again. It survived last winter, too. I need to find out what it is and get more, Dianna!
