On Tuesday after Roxie and I absorbed the beauty of the Japanese Gardens, we took a stroll through the Rose Garden nearby, just past the tennis courts. I love roses (who woulda thought!?) and like taking photographs of them at various angles and distances. One of the things that intrigues me is how petals are layered and create architecture and texture. It is hard to explain, but you can see in my photographs...
Some roses draw you into their core.
Some roses have subtle but stunning color.
Some speak softly yet deliver their message.
Some roses are not shy yet they are composed and assured.
A few are donned in frills and layers, like a Southern debutante. Always lovely!
beauty, color, texture, scent
Roses are like people-each unique, each has a different pose and look, different coloring, different scents, different feelings. And like people, there is always a secret, hidden core.
Like people they are judged.
In my eyes they are all lovely, all unique, and all add something to our world.
