just rosy

Some summer blooms to share today. I saw these pink roses on one of our walks the other day and couldn't resist snapping a shot. Sometimes it's just nice to stop and smell the roses. :)

Beautiful!

The only way the photo could have been better was if Jasper was in the shot!

Your photo would make a lovely card, the composition of the rose and its buds is perfect.

There is something extra special about old world roses. They remind me of the oil paintings done by the masters long ago. I once tried to grow some Victorian cabbage rose bushes but guess it was too hot and humid in Miami for them.

Lovely flowers! I agree, the photo would make a lovely card.
With the caption....
stop and smell the roses.

Thank you for your comment on my blog. Yes, my little granddaughter arrived June 4th...early, early in the morning.

Hi Valerie! I hope that all is well with you. I haven't really blogged or logged on to blogger this month - it's been busy for me! Did you have your baby yet? Looking forward to seeing your beautiful photos of your baby!
