Round Robin Photo Challenge: Growing


The theme for this Round Robin challenge is "Growing." We had a thunder shower pass through last week, and as soon as the rain stopped I dashed out to take some pictures of the roses in our back yard. They were weighed down with big, heavy water droplets. These roses have been growing in our back yard since we moved here, six years ago, with almost no care or attention. The bushes are not very pretty - quite woody and scraggly, yet every year they put out beautiful flowers. I really don't know how they survive our hot, dry summers with little to no TLC.

Hi Linda :)

Roses are such strong plants. Even the mini roses are easy to grow. The only real enemy they have is aphinds. They can be deadly.

This rose is stunning. Lovely capture with the water droplets on it. Nicely done.

What a pretty rose, especially with the water droplets on it. My roses get by on benign neglect, too. :-) Great shot!

Lovely. I like the way you captured them after the rain. The droplets enhance an already beautiful flower.
