a rose for today

Here is a series of pictures of one Rose.....One very beautiful Rose, from many different angles...... This Rose was a part of another beautiful arrangement by that great 'Artist of Flowers', Van, who's shop, The Conservatory is right down the hill from me...... Here above you can see a larger portion of the flowers surrounding that particular Rose....Van always uses such interesting flowers in such beautiful combinations.......The flowers are always truly 'fresh', as if he had been to the Flower Mart that morning.....and the Roses, in particular...Always perfection! And then, my very favorite of these closer looks..... I love this picture....! The petals are so incredibly beautiful.....The color of this particular Rose was striking in every way....Yes, it was Orange, but it had so much subtlety of color in, too....I thought it was an incredibly stunning Rose...... The way the petals fell in such an artful way....I've said this before, many times....You Cannot Beat Nature's Artistry.......And I must stay with Nature...For Balance, For Beauty, and For My Sanity....!



There will definitely be....





More To Come........

Such a beautiful flower. I mean, honestly, it almost has a quality about it that makes me just want to take a bite.

Very, very nice photos.

I don't think I've seen a rose this color before; it's beautiful, like the inside of a mango in one of the photos. I love how much clarity you get from these close ups. I always tell you, but your close ups shots are amazing, Naomi! Thanks for brightening up my Friday. ;)

Have a wonderful weekend in the hills!

Beautiful roses Naomi and you've captured them so well. Nice to see them in 'autumn' colours too.
I really do agree with you: One Cannot Beat Nature's Artistry!

Wishing you a lovely end to your week :-)

Thanks for the morning pick-me-up. I'm glad you posted these photos, although it would appear you did so way, way past your bedtime.

:)

Cheers.

That color is one of my favorites. The roses have a deep plum color on the outer edges of the outer petals and the combination is exquisite. Your closeups are phenomenal!

That is one beautiful rose. What the perfect color for October, the color of fall.

they look good enough to eat! I love the softness of the petals in your photos Naomi. Brilliant photos.....

Roses are forbidden innocence.... I don't have a clue what that means, but i like the thought. :)

Naomi,
What an exqusite rose - you make flowers look even more incredible than nature does on its own !

Hope you are doing well, and enjoying the cooling weather somewhat. It may even rain a bit tomorrow !

My parents and I are going to LaCachette tomorrow night for dinner to celebrate her 83rd birthday - look for the restaurant review :)

(Hugs)

When I first met my partner of 29yrs, I wanted to give her red roses,all the small town had was 12 yellow and orange roses. So now every year we seek out orange roses (yellow is easier)...yours are perfection.

Stunning! So orange, so bright and pastel at the same time, if that's possible. Absolutely gorgeous!

you absolutely can't beat nature's artistry but you can share it in such lovely ways - as you do

that particular orange always makes me think of sherbet. sweet yet crisp and as you said, very fresh.

I am not sure if it's the rose that's so unique, or your photography that brings out it's beauty. Regardless, those are the most beautiful pictures of a rose I think I've ever seen.

Wonderful images, Naomi.

I love the way you see things so artistically and compositionally, if that is a word! You don't go for just that record shot, just a mere snapshot, you always go for the grace and beauty in the lines that define the flower itself and I love that about you.
