White Rose

Posted by
Don (Spokane, United States) on 31 May 2013 in Plant & Nature.

A tiny blossom in my front yard from a previous summer. The subtle color of the blossom, white with just a hint of pink, was so appealing I had to see if I could capture its beauty. The rose measures only about 2 inches across (50.8m). These mildly fragrance blossoms fade very quickly and are soon gone.

The soft pink tinge gives it a wonderfully soft feel! Well seen and captured Don! ;-)

From what I have been noticing, roses seem to dry well...I would be tempted to clip a few and see if they would dry.

I agree...the delicate color is enticing. I can almost smell this rose. (I bought a rose bush last week that's still waiting to be planted. It's one of those mounding shrubs with profuse, single-petaled blooms.)

Fine off center composition. The rich green is very attractive and the tiny bud does a good job of balancing the large bloom.
