Summer of Love Rose



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Summer of Love is one of our newer roses growing in a container along our driveway. It has a beautiful pastel color and a wonderful form. The blossoms maintain their shape very well, and Summer of Love has become a favorite with us. It has a very mild 'spice' fragrance.

Pictures of flowers always seem better when you capture a drop of dew on them, like you did. Wish I could smell that one!

Very pretty. I like how you often photograph the roses with a drop or two of dew. The spicy scent sounds luscious!

Beautiful Macro-description. In fact spend quite a lot of short description. There you will find colors and shapes that can not normally find out and can not see ...
