Apricot Rose with raindrops

By RichardN00
Another from my series on roses from my garden.

My garden has been the savior of my sanity for the last couple of years.

With my usual wonderful sense of timing I retired on March 23 2020, that right the day that they declared the first lock down... Unable to go out or go on holiday or any of the things we had planed we threw our energy (and money) into the garden and turned it from the tatty, badly laid lawn the builders left us into an oasis of peace and beauty.

The garden is also gradually restoring my love for photography, I'd spent a reasonable amount on updating my camera gear in anticipation of going out and really getting back into photography, the lockdown totally destroyed my mojo and confidence and I found I couldn't even pick the camera up..Photographing flowers, something I'd never considered before, to catch their ephemeral beauty has started to inspire me to the point that I'm considering getting a macro lens
