Black and White Wednesday

Wednesday, August 4, 2010 |

 I've always been a bit apprehensive of these delicate plants and shied away from them at the garden center.This year I was brave and planted a few roses in our flower garden.

Surprisingly, not only have they survived {a small miracle in and of itself} but they have bloomed continuously through the late spring and summer months.

Looks can be deceiving. This variety blossoms into a beautiful miniature peony like flower. It has layers upon layers of petals when it is in full bloom.

I'm joining Lisa this week along with her talented ladies for Black and White Wednesday. Stop by and take a peek.

That is a Beautiful picture!
Aren't you happy that you took a risk and planted some roses. I am not quite that brave. :)
Enjoy them everyday!

A perfect rose - a great shot Jo. I remember being shy to try roses and now I can't imagine my garden without them. This looks like a centifolia, sometimes called the cabbage rose.

Happy Wednesday!

Hi Jo,

Your rose is very pretty and isn't it rewarding when they put on a pretty show for you ~ lovely photo.

Hope that you are enjoying your week

Jo I love the rose in black and white. It makes you see the form and texture more than in color.
My carriage photo was in Colonial Williamsburg. Thanks for your comment and visit.

Beautiful photo, Jo. I don't grow much of anything, as my thumb is definitely brown. You were a brave gal to attempt roses.

Nature is always inspiring! I don't have much of a green thumb! Actually, we I get a hold of plants it's more like a death sentence to the little guys, even as hard as I try :(

Lovely B&W!!
