Photo Ops in FLorida

 

I don't know if the roses were flattered or annoyed by our attentions-- I like to think of this as a "harmonic convergence."

 

Great!

Carol Green kept saying, "Hold it." I guess we did, because she got some pretty funny shots of Sherry Roma and me as we hovered over blooms in the Harry P. Leu Rose Garden.

 

Maggie-rose

It was a joy to see Maggie, one of my favorite roses, looking so good in Florida.

 

Pink-rose

With hat held firmly between my knees, I'm trying to cast a shadow over this pink rose for a perfect shot. Sherry, how did yours turn out? I forgot to shoot the label right there at my feet!

 

Pink rose

Maybe Sherry knows its name.

 

Lady-of-the-dawn

This one is Lady of the Dawn.

 

Sherry-&-carolyn

Sherry (who blogs at If Only Sweat Were Irrigation) and I became fast friends.

 

Sherry-&-Carolyn-2

Yes, roses are known for their special knack of bringing people together.

 

 

Thanks for the pics Carol!

Back at the first color post - purple - I told you that all these images come from the folder I compiled during my first blog experience, many moons, pixels and aps ago - woooooooo! Green has been my favorite color for my whole life and the images in this post run a grand sweep of experience. The Alba rugosa's first bloom - brave enough to bypass tight roots of that flourishing grass (and I don't mean lawn). The frog - Christmas ornament turned treasured bauble. Hand blown glass flower visiting nature for the photographer only. Hellebore in the little agate bowl that broke (nice to have its image). Charming Louisianna fence (how green and lovely it was there). Our new street sign. Porcelain Vine - (how enchanted I was by those turquoise and purple berries). Queen Anne's Lace (memories of childhood). Rose leaf extravaganza - it looks like a simple picture but took hours to create so you could see how diverse, once again, the rose world is. Thorns - too scary not to photograph! A machine part with super-glued mirror, hanging on our back fence.

 

Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its lovliness arises.

As far as I was concerned, we were all the same color because our helmets were all blue.

The Images

Blue hydrangeas formed the base for the two arrangements- white roses the icing. The butterfly stayed still enough for me to move it on to the delphinum for a picture! It must have been in shock- 20 minutes later it was gone. The pretty house is in a little gold country town- I can't remember the name. Artist husband's fish sculpture swam in the garden for awhile. Pamela Temple's pansy basket. And me with camera in garden globe. (Love being blue.)
