Glory of Edzell

Not knowing when the dawn will come I open every door.

~ Emily Dickinson


I'm in 'glory' when I find an ED quote that suits my photo. Her words always seem to have many meanings– I was thinking of the openness of these roses when I chose this line.

The photographer, on the other hand, immediately thought of how many tries (days) it took to find her shot of this creature. It wasn't dawn, but an unlikely afternoon with heavy skies. She had just returned from a horticultural adventure  in Marin County– and 'Glory' flashed a smile as she pulled into the driveway.

She took many pictures, and those along with others were finally ready for a post. She cringed at the thought of showing too many images– such a dilemma– and so many beauties. So she thought why not let her friends just bask in this one image today. Tomorrow there will be more.
