Today's Flowers - Perfect Rose Revisited


This is my last week's Perfect Rose.


And this is the same rose one week later.



The sun has deepened her colour!



The rose shows her changing beauty to a fresh bud.



I will return to see if she smells sweet!




Her name:

Such a nice progression of beauty--made me think of aging. Hopefully we will maintain the sweet fragrance! Thanks for sharing such beautiful roses--I could almost smell them.
Have a great week, Maria!

Leora said...

How charming, to follow the same rose. Wish you could send us the scent, too.

Hi! maria!
I'm having lunch break at work now!
I like the pale pink very much.
Actually I got two pots of pale pink roses last Spring.
but I dried out them...
Oh! That's too bad.

Cláudia said...

Roses are my favorite! I love them all.

Very soft colors. I like these shots.

It's beautiful. I love the soft pink color, and it was neat to see the progression over time.

Carletta said...

Thank you for showing her again.
I too thought of aging and how I felt more like her this week than last!
Very well done - nice post!

Maria: A beautiful bloom for sure.

Yes. this old rose looks like mine except you have a double and mine is a single. I like them as they are not bothered by insects, not even the aphids.

Your flower photograph is really a good one. I have enjoyed my visit here today.

Beautiful rose.

Cris said...

I love roses, and their beauty fades away so quickly, they also remind me of aging, and what is left, our inner beauty that only gets prettier with time!

Very nice! I loved the progression. I saw roses at a store, but when I went to smell them, they were completely without fragrance! How sad! I hope your roses smelled heavenly. :-)

A truly beautiful rose! Yes, you could almost smell this rose with your lovely photos! Will take you up on that coffee in Vienna someday I hope! And hope you will come to the States and we can meet, as well!
