If your love gives you roses, don't scoff. 169, 170/365


This rose is for "Black & White Wednesday".   My husband bought me a dozen "supermarket" roses for $5.99 and I scoffed at them.  Snipped they wouldn't open, nor last.  Well, was I ever proven wrong.  These were long lasting roses and didn't droop as they often do.  They lasted just over a week.


And the following photo is for "Movement in March":

Enjoy your roses, Margaret. Love the goose shot. I enjoy watching water fowl do their "water ballet" thing.

I love that your husband bought you some flowers : ) Don't they always make every day brighter? I love the pretty picture of your rose. Just lovely.

Wow...I really like the depth feeling in the first rose picture. Almost looks like a painting. And yes...the start of spring...great capture of the geese.

Margaret said...

Patty Ann- I could fill my entire blog with water reflections what with all the gorgeous lakes and ponds we have around here.

Life with Kaishon - Yes, flowers do brighten my day. I have even been buying them for myself lately...

Faith/Hope/Love Photography - Believe it or not, roses never captivated me UNTIL I started doing Macro shots of them. Now I am fascinated with Georgia O'Keeffe...
