Picture Post Part Five: War of the Roses

June is here, and you know what June brings, don’t you?  June bugs?  Well, not here.  Sweltering heat?  I guess, but think more positively.  Plants?  You’re on the right track . . . .  Oh, I’ll just tell you.  June brings roses!  So, for your viewing pleasure, I bring to you a virtual bouquet of roses.  Which one is your favorite?  I think that mine is the very last one.

  1. Hm… The last two are very classic, but that first one… I love the shape of the petals, like on section on top the other. Also the degree of colors. Is that a “wild” rose from a bush? Yeah, that first one would be my favorite. Beautiful pictures, btw.

  2. I’m not sure what kind of rose it is. There is a lady who grows beautiful roses in my neighborhood. In fact, three of the six pictured roses are from her garden. I will have to ask her the next time that I see her. Thank you very much for the compliment. 🙂 I’m glad that you liked them.

  3. I don’t think that I’ve ever seen it before either. I wish that I could ask the lady who planted it what rose that is, but she’s never outside anymore. I guess she sort of went, “I stayed out here for hours in the hot sun planting these. They’re planted. I’m done.”

  4. Thank you. That one is my favorite too. 🙂 It was part of a bouquet that my parents got me for my birthday last year. I couldn’t resist taking pictures of it.

  5. The second to last one white roses are just a wonder to behold. Also im a Yorkshire man so it has to be white it’s our counties symbol☺

  6. Thankyou for that looks like there a bit out of my reach too. I just like the look of them

  7. They are beautiful. Perhaps someday I’ll be able to get there and see those roses in person–another thing to add to the bucket list.
