The water droplets are simply fantastic.. though the rose has fully bloomed.... Great set of image, but for me it is V1.

Both excellent captures Carol. The added interest of the dew drops is a nice touch as well.

Larger view highly recommended to anyone as it shows plenty more as well Smile

Two fabulous images, wonderful delicate colours and the detail is superb, for me it has to be V1.

Very beautiful. Love the gentle curves of the petals and those perfect waterdrops. Perhaps as well there are none in flower in my garden as I think the Deer would have eaten them by now!

Perfection Carol . It is delightful to see roses growing in the deep cold winter weather xx

It is crunch crunch over to the dustbin with a stick in one hand and a bag of rubbish in the other . Some coal was delivered to me yesterday and so was a top up of oil, so I am confidently cosy xxx
