Garden eye spy: Roses are red

What is it about roses that inspire adoration? For me I think it has something to do with my father’s prized English rose garden struggling to survive the harsh Canadian climate each year, thus making the triumphant fanfare of blossoms all the more impressive when they finally arrived. Or perhaps it is as simple as bold colour being captured within intricately grown petals. Whatever the reason, roses are my favourite floral subject to photograph.
This rose portrait was taken last weekend during a leisurely post-brunch stroll. I love the delicate folds, the soothing colour and the unexpected almost romantic pattern that lingers within this flower. Part of me is tempted to print this image to canvas and hang in my bedroom as a piece of artwork. Do you love roses as much as I do?
