Late Fall Blooms

Here is my 'Leonidas' rose blooming this week. For some reason the richness
of the colors of this rose is not coming through.

Here is the same rose bloom soaking wet from the rain this week. Here it looks
almost surreal.

This is a bud from the same rose plant. 

I didn't touch up these shots. It amazed me how they photographed so 'out of this worldly'.

Here is the same rose bloom today (all dried off from the rain), two days before Thanksgiving.
Do you see the little ant?

I borrowed this image from Pinterest.
Again, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Me too...... it's such a pain.

Your roses even look stunning when they are covered in rain. What beautiful colours.

Wishing you and your family a fabulous and blessed Thanksgiving.

Best Carolyn

Oh my these are amazing! We got one last rose that was far less vivid, and very surprising this late. (It's COLD here!) Happy Thanksgiving!
