A new favorite...
One may live without bread, not without roses.
~ Jean Richepin
The more I photograph roses, the more I fall in love with them. My favorite flowers are actually daisies, followed closely by hydrangeas. But there's something about roses that keeps pulling me back in when I pick up my camera.
With all the recent packing and moving and unpacking, it's been nearly a couple of months since I have been able to do any photography. I've only just been sorting through and processing the batches I took in the couple of weeks leading up to all the upheaval. This is one of the last pictures I snapped in the rose garden at our old house. It's also my new favorite photograph ~ I have a copy of it set as the wallpaper on my computer. It's quite a magnificent rose, unfurled in all its pink loveliness, just starting to show its age on the outer edges. I am thinking I'll make prints of it for the shop, and maybe some note cards.
Speaking of the shop, I am getting back into the swing of things to get that open. I'm really trying to have it ready to open next month. Fingers crossed. And if you haven't already, stop by and check out our new Website: www.thepinkhome.com.
Wishing all of you a lovely and peaceful weekend...
