WW: Sheila's Perfume, a Pink Floribunda Rose

Pink Floribunda Rose Photo


"A profusion of pink roses being ragged in the rain speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring."
- William Carlos Williams

Getting rained on during my summer trip to Longwood Gardens wasn't ideal, but at least it paused long enough to let me capture some beautiful flower photos. Rain drops on roses are lovely, aren't they? And so is the sassy scent of Sheila's Perfume, a pale yellow and bright pink floribunda rose.

  11. The quote is absolutely beautiful and true. I LOVE roses. And we've had weeks of rain here so the only way to photograph them is with rain on them. Beautiful capture!

  13. At first I didn't notice the yellow in the rose, and then I looked back at it and it really stood out to me. The rose is beautiful.

  18. Pink is my weakness. Roses were too till I got the man who is allergic to flowers.

    But they are pretty & I simply love your pic.
    I recall how florists iny area uses to sprinkle water on the rose to give this effect.
