Rose of the Week: Pink Promise

(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.

Pink Promise is one of the roses in containers along our driveway.  When the bud first opens there are thin pink edges on the petals.  As the blossom opens more and gets older, the pink spreads.  Betsy and I think it is a beautiful rose in any stage.

Looks like it has a light glowing from the middle. Beautiful!

Craver Vii said...

Nice detail. The droplets and veins are so clear in the center. That's neat to find out how the color spreads from the edges.
