Garden Gift

By pamelajean
A big thankyou to Sandra (crookymonsta) for her User Award on my "Daisy, Daisy".

I thought it was about time I uploaded one of my flower pictures.
I've given these roses this title because it was already in the garden when I moved here two years ago, and has delighted me ever since. Despite the change in the weather, it's happily blooming right now.


PS: Thanks to Carol, I have identified the rose as a Harry Wheatcroft and was intrigued to find that several of his roses were used on Paragon and Royal Standard teaware.

Gorgeous complementary background. I'm contrary, I often look at backgrounds first, it's my past history in watercolours. I know how important that area is.

Beautiful flowers well photographed. Red is such a difficult colour to handle and this looks just right.

A truly beautiful image as already stated... your use of manual white balance with the Fuji was a great choice. (My HS30EXR does not like red)

As a lover of roses may I say what a beautiful image. Its either Masquarade or Monet. Not sure. But lovely regardless.

My goodness! I have been feeling under the weather lately, but your wonderful comments and User Awards have really given me a lift. Thankyou all so much!
I'm now going to do a bit of research on the suggested names for the rose, and will let you know what I discover. Since I didn't plant it myself, as I have said, I had no idea.
