Flower of the Day: Roses

Since I was nearly in the neighborhood, I stopped by the Des Moines Rose Garden this morning (July 1, 2021) to see if there were any roses still in bloom. There were!

These are my favorite pictures of the day. Each shows a cluster of roses at different stages of blooming. Isn’t that how life is? From just beginning to nearly the end, each stage has its own beauty and, at its best, is connected to others.

Have you stopped to smell any roses lately?

Cee – the Cee of Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge – has multiple photography challenges. Since this is all flowers, I’m including it in her Flower of the Day challenge.

      It felt like a circle of life sort if thing when I first saw it. Made me think about how I always try to photograph the ‘perfect’ flower and wonder if I should look more closely for the perfection in every flower.
