Breath-taking roses and the textures of the wall are super. I love the dirt at the bottom of the spindles.
The roses are very beutiful. Here winter is creeping in through every crack and open window and there aren't many flowers around. Although the aloes are about to flower.
We have a similar rose garden in Minneapolis, which I haven't visited yet this year, but your photos of the flowers reminds me of what I am missing. They're beautifully photographed and presented.
What gorgeous roses! I can almost smell them!
Oh WOW... just look at those roses!!! Amazing. We do not have any roses quite up yet... soon, but not quite yet... very pretty!
Sorry to have not mentioned it before... but it's great to have you back, Faye.I know my tastes are a bit on the weird side, but despite all the beautiful rose pictures, I can't seem to stop gazing at the moss and weeds growing beneath the cement posts in the top picture. The roses are pretty to be sure, but they don't grab me like the first picture does. Great shot.
I agree with Sam. :) My favorite photo is the first, and the rustic sense of life growing is what gets me. Perfect.
Beautiful collage, Faye! Isn't Portland the city of roses???!!!
