Rose of the Week: Sedona

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

This is another in the series featuring a rose from our yard.

Sedona is one of the roses in our newest flower bed, the one nearest the road.  It’s said that the colors of this rose are similar to the red bluffs and high desert sunsets of the American Southwest, which accounts for its name.  All we know for sure is that we really like this beautiful rose and are glad to have it in our yard.

Sedona was my favorite rose in our yard last year --but Summer Surprise won my heart this year... Of course, YOU are the one who really has my HEART --but I do love all of our roses also...

Love,

It is gorgeous! There is even something special about the texture of this picture, but I can't put my finger on it. You must have done something because it almost looks like a beautiful painting.

It is a beauty. I think the red does resemble the color of a western sunset.

troutbirder said...

The dewdrops add a special something. Very nice, George.

Marie said...

A gorgeous shade of red! Wonderful photo, George!

Team G Square said...

Wonderfully composed picture. You have a great collection of roses.

Marie said...

I meant to tell you that the cactus wrens left as suddenly as they appeared. I have no idea if they were a pair. I haven't seen them in the yard again.

A Lady's Life said...

It sure has many visible lines on it.
Gives it a lot of character.

Craver Vii said...

I like this velvety, watercolor texture. It's impressive, how you can take get all these great flowers. I had roses, and they perished... I definitely do not have a green thumb.

Marie said...

So happy you enjoyed my waterfall photos from Colorado, George! I thought about you and Betsy every time I saw one!

EG CameraGirl said...

Oh, the colour of this rose is luscious!

Linda said...

Marvelous! And it suits it's name. Sedona is a special place!

This is very unique and pretty. Funny thing, Larry's daughter, Brooke, is currently in Sedona on vacation. She is visiting a famous spa there. Poor Larry is babysitting Brooke's dog!
