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...

I am linking to Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound. Stop by Beverly's place for more lovely pinks.


I know about roses....there is just something about them and I love many other flowers, too....like you the Daisies, Lily Of The Valley, Lilacs, Tulips, Bleeding Hearts....just to name a few, but roses...Oh we love our roses!
I love how you have a rose in each teacup on your window sil! Enchanting!

Happy Pink Saturday
This bloom is stunning.
I read an article the other day that said that flowers were the most photographed of any earthy object.

Yours are lovely.

Enjoy your garden this wonderful summer.

What a beautie. Roses in pinks are always enjoyed. Thx for sharing.


I came for Pink Saturday and took the tour of the new cottage. It's just fabulous. Can't wait to see the rest. xo Nancy

I love that quote!!! And I love your photo. GORGEOUS!!

I enjoy taking photographs of roses too, and recently, I enjoyed a photo shoot at the rose garden in one of the downtown parks in my city. It seems I have a new favorite every visit.

Hope you have a lovely weekend. Oh, and I'm glad my classic movie reviews have piqued your interest in classic Hollywood. That is definitely my goal!
What a lovely rose.

I've always thought roses were pretty, but never really thought about planting any until my cousin gave me one for my birthday. Now I have several and have fallen madly in love with each one. Beautiful photo!
