A Perfect Rose?



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I don't know if there is such a thing as a perfect rose, but I think this comes pretty close. Veterans Honor is a rose in our new flower bed, and I got this picture yesterday morning just as the sunlight reached it. This seems a very appropriate rose for Memorial Day weekend.

How appropriate! I purchased that rose two years ago to honor my dad and all veterans and because of the exquisite rose. Unfortunately, it's one of the ones we lost.

You got real good color here. My rose pictures tend to be over-saturated.

You've managed to make this into something elegant -- like a red rose. It is beautiful, George.

Roses are lovely, it's your national flower isn't it.

It's a beautiful rose, George - the colour, the shape, the amount of openness.

No roses blooming here yet!

Very approriate rose indeed.
Each summer, when I visit my roses I am always amazed by the perfection of their shape.
