In full bloom

By ColleenA
Good morning.....
Another rose today....loved the colour and the angle it was growing.
Have a nice day............GrinGrin

My husband is in very good spirits now that Australia has won the Ashes....and looking forward to the Boxing Day test at the MCG in Melbourne.....I will take my camera with me that day and hopefully get some action shots....GrinGrin

Beautiful Colleen, especially V1. The colours, the tones, the background all superb.

Lovely set, Colleen! It is a pleasure for the eyes!Smile
P.S. I mean blonde, not due to the colour of her hair (it's very nice!), but due to the quality of her mind (no gray matter of the brain as such!)WinkLOL

A good angle for an image - sometimes we want to isolate a single bloom
and this one has been very obliging. Beautiful colour.
