Bon Weekend!



All the roses are in bloom in San Diego. Everywhere you go, you see beautiful roses! They thrive here. I'm cheating a little - I took the above photo at The Butchart Gardens in Victoria, Canada.

The rose below was from my garden this am. This is an iceberg rose which I have many of. They are very easy to grow and are always full of lovely white flowers.

Bon Weekend mes amis!

Seems a mighty long way to go to photograph a rose. Nice photo though. Have a great weekend Nancy.

Wonderful composition with rose off centre. Nice one.

These roses can't hold a candle to my "Little Shop of ...Mailbox Horrors" but their own unique beauty will have to do. Mother Nature obviously had a hand in their creation.

Gorgeous! Stunning. I also enjoyed your photos of the seals at La Jolla and the Scripps pier. Thanks for your comments about the agave on my site. It is sad that the agave dies after blooming. I am a bit behind in responding because of work demands. I am preparing a night scapes series this week on my site.

Very pretty. We don't have any roses here yet, but I can't wait until they start blooming so I can try a few a shots.

Oh, you daily photo people and your beautiful pictures, you think you're all that and a charged battery.

(One of the best rose photos I've ever seen.)

Very difficult to get good pictures of white flowers - well done!

Oh Wow! We were just at the Butchart but your photo of that gorgeous bloom surpasses any I took. I love it! Definitely worth enharging, framing and hanging in your livingroom for everybody to admire.
