ENCHANTMENT… ROSES

More FROM OUR GARDEN. The Roses in our garden, earlier they just exploded and then the weather turned with stormy wind and rain for about a week, both blooms and buds thrashed, now better weather and they are recovering once more. Just Joey Rose next to the white climbing spray-Roses, flanked by the Fire and Ice vibrant flower-heads and topped by the fragrant yellow beauties. So opulent, swaying gently in the breeze and painted in the dappled sunlight. A paradise for humans, a haven for bees. The white ones sometimes come out with a 'blush'... but that disappears, fades as they open and 'mature'. Here together in the studio for your joy.

JOY, WISDOM, POWER… YELLOW ROSE

Yellow roses are the perfect way to toast friends, lift spirits and send a general wish for well-being. You can never go wrong with yellow roses. In many Eastern cultures, the colour represents joy, wisdom and power, the symbolism of flowers eh. By the 18th century the worldwide love of roses was in full swing, but they were only cultivated in shades of pink and white. At last, the elusive yellow rose was discovered growing wild in the Middle East, and the European love affair with yellow roses was born. The early yellow rose lacked the sweet scent for which the rose is now also famous. So, as cultivation methods were developed and refined, the beloved sweet-and-spicy rose scent was soon introduced and the yellow rose achieved all its optimistic and aromatic glory.

BETTER IN TWOS… ROSES

“Marriage is like a well-built porch. If one of the two posts leans too much, the porch collapses. So each must be strong enough to stand on its own.” ― Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming The rose is the most popular flower of all. No other plant has had such a rich and romantic heritage as the rose, and no other flower has been interpreted in nearly as many ways as the rose. The most common emotion associated with the rose is affection and love.

A SINGLE PINK ROSE…

I declare February LOVE, romance and beauty month. ‘I’m single for a reason waiting on the right one to come along.’ said this Rose. The rose is the most popular flower of all. No other plant has had such a rich and romantic heritage as the rose, and no other flower has been interpreted in nearly as many ways as the rose. The most common emotion associated with the rose is affection and love. Even the single rose has various layers of meaning. Although roses are sometimes presented in dozens, a single rose is the same effective in expressing deep feelings.

BLOW US A KISS… Rosebud…

KISS of a ROSE-bud… One of the last roses this year in the garden, it was rained on (hence the water-drops), and the wind was blowing this beauty mercilessly about, I took pity on it, and brought it in. It like blew us a kiss? "Just Joey" is a Hybrid Tea Rose and has a fruity fragrance ( to me it smells like ripe raspberries mmmmmm) which wafts from large ruffled salmon blooms, once opened. This superstar rose is from England. Just Joey roses were inducted into the Hall of Fame by the World Federation of Rose Societies in 1994. The flowers are well-formed with large, high-centred buds, supported by long, straight and upright stems. Each blousy flower can grow to 8-12.5 cm wide. Hybrid Teas are the world's most popular type of rose by choice due to their color and flower form. With their long stems, it gives them the advantage, over others, as cut flowers. Each time I think... that's it, there's only so much you can do with flowers... and yet again and again, I'll see something new. Being creative is not a choice... it is an urge in me.

SUPPORT the PHOTOGRAPHER: BUY DIRECT The fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose. quote by George William Curtis I don't talk to flowers, they talk to me and I gladly listen! Those were straight out of the garden, where it had rained, so they were a bit 'teary'... and not 100% perfect, for me adding to their charm. This bud thick and on the brinck, so ready to unfurl. Roses from our own garden (rescued... again...). They are fragrant, blousy and called 'JUST JOEY'. For years I 'experimented' in the studio, to get that Flemish painter's light?

NEVER ENOUGH ROSES…

If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace. quote by Thich Nhat Hanh Mini roses, so dainty and delicate. WHITE ROSE, SYMBOL of PEACE. There are plenty of myths and legends behind the white rose. As one myth has it, the first rose on Earth was a white rose, and it miraculously transformed to other hues. The pure white rose was said to have been tainted by blood, making it red; and it was also made to blush from a kiss, making it pink. Another myth came from the Ancient Greeks. It was said that roses were originally white until one day Aphrodite the Goddess of Love and Beauty pricked herself with the thorns of a rose. The blood that dripped from her finger turned the white roses red. These myths indicate the loss of innocence, which is the absolute opposite of what the white rose symbolises ñ innocence and purity. It will come as no surprise to you when I ay: I love flowers, ney, I NEED flowers! So, when I look out of windows, the garden lays barren and colourless.

LAST OF THE GARDEN ROSES...imperfection...less boring...

Putting the garden 'to bed' for its Winter sleep, I saw a few roses still trying, being beaten by wind and rain, damaged... not perfect anymore, but very INTERESTING, I cut them and brought them in, the pink one especially fragrances of raspberries...View On Black The white roses are the symbol of Yorkshire (traditionally the origins of the emblem are said to go back to Edmund of Langley in the 14th century, the first Duke of York and the founder of the House of York as a Cadet branch of the then ruling House of Plantagenet. The actual symbolism behind the rose has religious connotations as it represents the Virgin Mary, who was often called the Mystical Rose of Heaven. The York rose is white in colour, because in Christian liturgical symbolism, white is the symbol of light, typifying innocence and purity, joy and glory.

FLORIOGRAPHY...PINK ROSES...

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! The language of flowers, sometimes called floriography. Pink Rose (Dark) means: Thankfulness; Gratitude Hybrid Perpetual ROSE— The dominant class of roses in Victorian England, they first emerged in 1838 and were derived to a great extent from the Bourbons. They became the most popular garden and florist roses of northern Europe at the time, as the tender tea roses would not thrive in cold climates. The "perpetual" in the name hints at repeat-flowering, but many varieties of this class had poor reflowering habits; the tendency was for a massive spring bloom, followed by either scattered summer flowering, a smaller autumn burst, or sometimes nothing at all until next spring. This 'head' of 5 beauties... the weather was mad, raining, thunder and lightning, so in between showers, you can still see some drops on the petals, drying up quickly though under the studio-light... yep, I rushed out, yep another 'rescue' job, lol. I use cutters, gobos and flags to shield and play with the light. Photography is LIGHT Art, also a way of life and seeing life, it is my passion, mental and emotional nourishment. All I can say is experiment, experiment, experiment... the exposure is irrelevant because each flower, light source is different. Make it your own!

MADEMOISELLE ROSE...

ALWAYS ROSE equals BEAUTY… “The rose is a rose from the time it is a seed to the time it dies. Within it, at all times, it contains its whole potential. It seems to be constantly in the process of change: Yet at each state, at each moment, it is perfectly all right as it is.” by Paulo Coelho These are what I trust in this world, never disappointment, unlike some people, too often… No matter what, it comes from the garden, sometimes blemished, even damaged they ALWAYS can delight me. A fresh bud, a rose called appropriately: Fire & Ice. These duo-toned roses are plump and opulent but are only mildly fragrant. I will persist and bring beauty EVERY day, amongst all the sadness and madness, this will be my answer!

A 'VICTORIAN' PLUMP BEAUTY...

"A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world..."
quote by Leo Buscaglia.
View On Black
Most of you know by now how I love 'playing' with light, a never ending beautiful challenge, food for my creative soul, lol... Flowers are a great 'subject' because of their diversity.
Contrary to what many think: I AM NOT A FLOWER PHOTOGRAPHER!
Just A photographer.
I love my job, but contrary to what most 'enthusiasts' think, and wish it was their 'job', pro photographic work is often boring, the clients tell you what they want, if they know what they want, which is not always the case, that, or they DO know and just can't bring it across, there's not much space for personal input (not by lack of trying!!!).
This here is my FREEDOM!
Each flower seems to have a different 'personality' which I'm trying to capture.

READ BETWEEN THE PETALS… Rose

I keep saying that my flowers talk to me and that I gladly listen? This is what I mean, I look at them, turn them, study them, and find that they are like people. When you are open to it, you will see the sunshine and the rain… the laughter and the tears, they convey a certain emotion, each flower differs. That is why I love what I do, never tire of it as it fills me with joy and satisfaction. It is still a daily discovery. I want that emotion in my images. A day without 'creation' is a day half lived, yes, I have been an addict for years, and it makes me over the moon happy.

A HOST of SORROWS...ROSE

Sadness, can be for many reasons... these roses are host to many teardrops. From my garden, a rose called appropriately: Fire & Ice. These duotoned roses are plump and opulent but are non-fragrant. The weather was mad, raining, thunder and lightning, so in between showers, you can still see some drops on the petals, drying up quickly though under the studio-light... yep, I rushed out, yep another 'rescue' job, lol.

NOT ALL ROSES HAVE THORNS...

Duotone roses from the garden, thus imperfect due to sun, rain, wind, insects!
They are plump and opulent but non-fragrant. I again tried to photograph them in the 'style' that I love so much, moody, playing with the light and dof. Designed them so you could see all the detail.
A bit Victorian again!

MY MANDALA of ROSES…

For PEACE, always.. The meaning of mandala comes from Sanskrit meaning "circle." Even though it may be dominated by squares or triangles, a mandala has a concentric structure. Mandalas offer balancing visual elements, symbolising unity and harmony. The goal of the mandala is to serve as a tool on our spiritual journey as it symbolises cosmic and psychic order. The Hindus were one of the first people to use a mandala as a spiritual tool, but the mandalas most individuals are familiar with, are ones made by Buddhists. These duo-toned roses are small and dainty and non-fragrant.

THE LAST CRESCENDO of SUMMER...

"In the east it is still believed that the first rose was created from a tear of the prophet Mohamed, and it is further believed that on a certain day in the year the rose has a heart of gold." It is wonderful that a site like 500px brings so many of us together, it has left me more hopeful for the future and the future of our children, but like everything in life and roses in particular, beware of the thorns… I’m an optimist, there is not as much hate as they’d like us to believe? The Rose is a flower of great Symbolism and importance in many cultures, mythologies and religions. Again Ala Victoriana? These are some of the last Roses from our garden, most plants are getting ready for the long rest ahead... some give a last burst of colour... by the look of it... it is going to be a long Winter!

FLORIOGRAPHY...WHITE ROSES...

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! The language of flowers, sometimes called floriography. Meaning has been attributed to flowers for thousands of years, and some form of floriography has been practiced in traditional cultures throughout Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. The ~Language of Flowers~ originated in Persia in the 15th century, and was brought to Europe in the 18th centuary. In the 19th century, this ~floral code~ became popular and people sent messages in bouquets to each other. Since each flower, colour, and number had a specific meaning, conversations between lovers took place without a single word being used. Roses are the perfect gifts to convey your emotions. White roses symbolize reverence and humility. In American culture, the white roses symbolize security and happiness and are used for weddings. The white rose is also known as the ~Flower of Light.~ In Asian tradition, white stands for the ultimate absence; death.

PASSIONATE TRIO... for PEACE.

"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends." quote by Maya Angelou If each rose is a new friend, the more we know each other the more there will be peace? Invite your friends so that they can become our friends too? I created a group on FB, NO, not a 'FLOWER'-group... so sad about all the terrible news constantly...

A LOVE THEME...

For December I'm uploading images to do with the festive season. This is many different things...as you can see... Love is what we are all after and the spice of life! The red rose whispers of passion, And the white rose breathes of love; O, the red rose is a falcon, And the white rose is a dove. - John Boyle O’Reilly Paul bought me those two beauties, long-stemmed roses... Most of you know by now how I love 'playing' with light, a never ending beautiful challenge, food for my creative soul, lol... Flowers are a great 'subject' because of their diversity. Contrary to what many think: I AM NOT A FLOWER PHOTOGRAPHER! Just A photographer. I love my job, but contrary to what most 'enthusiasts' think, and wish it was their 'job', pro photographic work is often boring, the clients tell you what they want, if they know what they want, which is not always the case, that, or they DO know and just can't bring it across, there's not much space for personal input (not by lack of trying!!!). This here is my FREEDOM! Each flower seems to have a different 'personality' which I'm trying to capture. An image from this series became a Book Cover in Italy for Romeo e Giulietta by Shakespeare. THANX for ALL your comments and visits.

TOUJOURS l’AMOUR… ROSES

'Won't you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.' quote by Richard Brinsley Sheridan Red roses are given to those who you want to show love and passion, people who you have great respect for, and those who have shown great courage. Again from the garden. This plant only gives one or 2 flowers every season for some reason? Two years now the buds were stolen. Not this year, I was too quick. Next year I will move my roses away from the gate/wall. Too attractive. They have the fragrance of ripe and sun-warmed raspberries.

A RED, RED ROSE, for my love…

"A Red, Red Rose" is a 1794 poem and song by the Scot, Robert Burns O my Luve's like a red, red rose That’s newly sprung in June; O my Luve's like the melodie That’s sweetly play'd in tune. As fair art thou, my bonnie lass, So deep in luve am I: And I will luve thee still, my dear, Till a’ the seas gang dry: Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear, And the rocks melt wi’ the sun: I will luve thee still, my dear, While the sands o’ life shall run. And fare thee weel, my only Luve And fare thee weel, a while! And I will come again, my Luve, Tho’ it were ten thousand mile. This is a Rose from the garden, no name, and it struggles. Maybe two blooms a year, and last Summer they were stolen, this year: ONE!!! A HEAVENLY fragrance of sweet ripe raspberries… I close my eyes and can smell them… THANX and take care, M, (*_*) For more of my other work visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

So, another year gone by. Same as every year, with laughter and with tears, sun and showers. Sometimes we have cause to grumble, often reason to smile. Such is life.

CENTER STAGE, ROSES...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiP9WH0zN0Y&list=RDOPJ1WTF2SDY&index=6 If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace. quote by Thich Nhat Hanh WHITE ROSE, SYMBOL of PEACE. There are plenty of myths and legends behind the white rose. As one myth has it, the first rose on Earth was a white rose, and it miraculously transformed to other hues. The pure white rose was said to have been tainted by blood, making it red; and it was also made to blush from a kiss, making it pink. Another myth came from the Ancient Greeks. It was said that roses were originally white until one day Aphrodite the Goddess of Love and Beauty pricked herself with the thorns of a rose. The blood that dripped from her finger turned the white roses red. These myths indicate the loss of innocence, which is the absolute opposite of what the white rose symbolises ñ innocence and purity. It will come as no surprise to you when I ay: I love flowers, ney, I NEED flowers! So, when I look out of windows the garden lays barren and colourless. That is when I bring flowers into our home, in colourful flower pots. Here I went for white and white, with ‘stage light’ Have a sweet day and thanx for viewing, Magda (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE (ONLY PLACE TO BUY MY IMAGES!), VIEW THE NEW PORTFOLIOS AND LATEST NEWS HERE on our website: www.indigo2photography.co.uk IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

THE STORY of A ROSE IN JANUARI...

This is a rose I cut from our garden, on the FIRST day of the Year!!! I had not had the time to prune the roses, that, or when I did, the weather was too dreadful to go out! I decided to leave it for early Spring. Woke up, that first fresh morning, looking forward to a nice long breakfast, opened the curtains, yuk.. four small buds on the rosebush were again being thrashed about in bursts of wind. The breakfast became shorter than intended... I got dressed and ready, went out armed with my secateurs, brought them in, I saw the leaves were quite damaged. For the first 2 days nothing happened, despite my encouragment (LOL)... on the third day, YESSS, they were opening... To my amazement, I always thought they were pure white... but no, they had pink edges! A true WINTER-ROSE! Giving my flowers SOUL?

WHITE ROSE, A SYMBOL of PEACE

MY AB FAV... here for today: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ ... a rose from our garden, here in Yorkshire, my adopted country. If there is to be peace in the world, there must be peace in the nations. If there is to be peace in the nations, there must be peace in the cities. If there is to be peace in the cities, there must be peace between neighbors. If there is to be peace between neighbors, there must be peace in the home.

A SYMBOL of PEACE, WHITE ROSE...

PROMISE you a ROSE-WEEK! From my garden. If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace. — Thich Nhat Hanh There are plenty of myths and legends behind the white rose. As one myth has it, the first rose on Earth was a white rose, and it miraculously transformed to other hues. The pure white rose was said to have been tainted by blood, making it red; and it was also made to blush from a kiss, making it pink. Another myth came from the Ancient Greeks.

WHITE COMPANY… SPRAY-ROSES

From my garden. The language of flowers, sometimes called floriography. Meaning has been attributed to flowers for thousands of years, and some form of floriography has been practised in traditional cultures throughout Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. The ~Language of Flowers~ originated in Persia in the 15th century, and was brought to Europe in the 18th century. In the 19th century, this ~floral code~ became popular and people sent messages in bouquets to each other. Since each flower, colour, and number had a specific meaning, conversations between lovers took place without a single word being used. Roses are the perfect gifts to convey your emotions. White roses symbolise reverence and humility. In American culture, the white roses symbolise security and happiness and are used for weddings. The white rose is also known as the ~Flower of Light.~ There are plenty of myths and legends behind the white rose.

WHITE ROSE DAY…

HAPPY YORKSHIRE DAY! On 1 August 1759, British troops and their allies defeated the French at the battle of Minden. After the battle, the British soldiers picked white roses and wore them as a tribute to their fallen comrades. Since that day, a number of Yorkshire-based regiments have worn white roses on 1 August to commemorate the events of 1759 and all those from Yorkshire who have fallen in battle since. Yorkshire is my adopted country. I live here by choice and love it.

SWEET SPRAY of WHITE ROSES…

“Year by year the complexities of this world grow more bewildering, and so each year we need all the more to seek peace and comfort in joyful simplicities.” From our garden, a climbing Rose. The main difference between rambling roses and climbers is that rambling roses usually flower once, whereas climbing roses usually repeat flower throughout summer and autumn!

WANNA LOOK LIKE YOU, ROSE

said the shy little bud to the beautiful white bloom. https://youtu.be/jr6FBaf03qQ From our garden… Suited to reverent occasions, the white rose is a fitting way to honour a friend or loved one in recognition of a new beginning or a farewell. Their pure colour conveys respect, pays homage to new starts and expresses hope for the future. Historically, the white rose symbolised innocence and purity, which is how it became associated with weddings and bridal bouquets. Today, the white rose has retained its associations with both pure love and formal ceremony, making it a many-purposed recognition of unions and ceremonial occasions, such as anniversaries, christenings and graduations.

WITH RENEWED HOPE... for PEACE.

Without vibrant color to upstage it, the beauty of the rose is showcased to its best advantage in white roses. Suited to reverent occasions, the white rose is a fitting way to honor a friend or loved one in recognition of a new beginning or a farewell.

MY UNBRIDLED PASSION...

Roses symbolize unbridled passion. Of beauty born, they burn with hungry fire.... this is part of a poem by Nicholas Gordon. The Roses mixed with the 'virgin-white' snapdragons... Antirrhinum is a genus of plants commonly known as snapdragons or dragon flower from the flowers' fancied resemblance to the face of a dragon that opens and closes its mouth when laterally squeezed (thus the 'snap'). This image is a good representation of my own unbridled passion for flowers. I still do not consider myself a 'flower-photographer', only a photographer who loves to take the best possible images of flowers, bringing out the characteristics, shapes and colours, through light and placement, give them a 'personality'...

NIGHTS IN WHITE SATIN...

This detail of a White rose reminded me of folds, soft waves... white satin sheets.. www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lazdg-eqmQ&feature=related At the end, the poem "Late Lament." It was written by Graeme Edge. Breathe deep the gathering gloom, Watch lights fade from every room. Bedsitter people look back and lament, Another day's useless energy spent. Impassioned lovers wrestle as one, Lonely man cries for love and has none. New mother picks up and suckles her son, Senior citizens wish they were young. Cold hearted orb that rules the night, Removes the colours from our sight. Red is grey and yellow white, But we decide which is right. And which is an illusion???

A SWEET SOFT SUMMER IMAGE… Rose, Honeysuckle

A single thought… Everything great that has ever happened to humanity has begun as a single thought in someone's mind. And if any one of us is capable of such a thought, then all of us have the same capacity and capability, because we're all the same? by Yanni Interesting, something to think about? Hmm, I do not think we are all the same… I love the first bit though! I walked through the garden yesterday… aaah, so fragrant, not too hot and still many colours. I gathered some for small vases around the house, and, of course could NOT resist photographing some… LOL Here, a mini pink Rose and some Honeysuckle, (Lonicera, Caprifolium Mill.) are arching shrubs or twining vine climbers, native to the Northern Hemisphere. Many of the species have sweetly-scented, bell-shaped flowers that produce a sweet, edible nectar. Breaking of the honeysuckle's stem will release this powerful sweet fragrance. The fruit is a red, blue or black berry containing several seeds; in most species the berries are mildly poisonous, but a few (notably Lonicera caerulea) have edible berries. *Flowers attract bumblebees, butterflies and moths to drink nectar. *Bullfinches, warblers and thrushes eat the berries. The name Lonicera stems from Adam Lonicer, a Renaissance botanist.Thanks for your time and comments, greatly appreciated, M, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE (ONLY PLACE TO BUY!), visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

A PRESENT... ROSE

"Those who are truly enlightened, are those whose souls are illuminated by love" The variety is a tea-rose, name 'Just Joey', from my garden... One of the first roses this year in the garden, it was rained on (hence the water-drops), and the wind was blowing this beauty mercilessly about, I took pity on it, and brought it in. The second one was stolen…. what IS wrong with people??? NO VASE LIFE, only last a couple of hours! In the garden,more than a week. "Just Joey" is a Hybrid Tea Rose and has a fruity fragrance to die for ( to me it smells like ripe raspberries mmmmmm) which wafts from large ruffled salmon blooms, once opened. This superstar rose is from England. Just Joey roses were inducted into the Hall of Fame by the World Federation of Rose Societies in 1994. The flowers are well-formed with large, high-centred buds, supported by long, straight and upright stems. Each blousy flower can grow to 8-12.5 cm wide. I don't talk to flowers, they talk to me and I gladly listen!

TEARDROPS on ROSE… JUST JOEY

Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages. Thomas A. Edison The variety is a tea-rose, name 'Just Joey', from my garden... One of the first roses this year in the garden, it was rained on (hence the water-drops), and the wind was blowing this beauty mercilessly about, I took pity on it, and brought it in. The second one was stolen…. what IS wrong with people??? NO VASE LIFE, only last a couple of hours! In the garden,more than a week. "Just Joey" is a Hybrid Tea Rose and has a fruity fragrance to die for ( to me it smells like ripe raspberries mmmmmm) which wafts from large ruffled salmon blooms, once opened. This superstar rose is from England. Just Joey roses were inducted into the Hall of Fame by the World Federation of Rose Societies in 1994. The flowers are well-formed with large, high-centred buds, supported by long, straight and upright stems. Each blousy flower can grow to 8-12.5 cm wide. I don't talk to flowers, they talk to me and I gladly listen! They speak of opulence, splendour, prosperity, richness, voluptuousness, sumptuousness and luxuriance , but also of a certain dark secrecy... just blooming from the bud in the most delicious curves...

BEAUTY IS AN ECSTASY... ROSE

BEAUTY IS AN ECSTASY... ROSE "Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all." by W. Somerset Maugham Few roses are as perfumed as 'Just Joey' a classic variety, with a fabulous scent and stunning depth of colour. The salmon, coppery-orange flowers have pronounced red veining, with the whole bloom fading to a satisfying copper-buff with age. For this reason, it was voted Rose of the World in 1994. It is also very disease-proof and undemanding. The blooms make good cut flowers, but they are also stunning when plants are massed together prominently in a bed. As a hybrid tea rose, it is best pruned from late winter to early spring. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit.

THE PRESENT... A rose for peace.

"Those who are truly enlightened, are those whose souls are illuminated by love" The variety is a tea-rose, name 'Just Joey', from my garden... I don't talk to flowers, they talk to me and I gladly listen!

CRY ME A RIVER… JUST JOEY ROSE

THE ROSE-WEEK I promised: A blousy fragrant tea-rose, name Just Joey, from the garden... Rescued again, it is July and we have rain and wind, their heavy blooms being trashed on their delicate stems, I couldn't stand it any longer, brought them in!

CAPRICCIO... Rose, JUST JOEY

SUPPORT the PHOTOGRAPHER: BUY DIRECT “There was something rather blousy about roses in full bloom, something shallow and raucous, like women with untidy hair” ― Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca Each time I think... that's it, there's only so much you can do with flowers... and yet again and again, I'll see something new. Being creative is not a choice... it is an urge and hunger in me. I am NOT a 'WORKAHOLIC'. I only constantly aim to see the end result! "Just Joey" is a Hybrid Tea Rose and has a fruity fragrance ( to me it smells like ripe raspberries mmmmmm) which wafts from large ruffled salmon blooms, once opened.

The flowers are well-formed with large, high-centred buds, supported by long, straight and upright stems. Each blousy flower can grow to 8-12.5 cm wide. Hybrid Teas are the world's most popular type of rose by choice due to their color and flower form. With their long stems, it gives them the advantage, over others, as cut flowers. Most shrubs tend to be very upright, reaching up to 1.8 metres and are recurrent-flowering (flowering constantly during the season, unlike wild dog roses that flower once).

JUST PEACHY... JUST JOEY.

SUPPORT the PHOTOGRAPHER: BUY DIRECT Each time I think... that's it, there's only so much you can do with flowers... and yet again and again, I'll see something new. Being creative is not a choice... it is an urge and hunger in me. I am NOT a 'WORKAHOLIC'. I only constantly aim to see the end result! "Just Joey" is a Hybrid Tea Rose and has a fruity fragrance ( to me it smells like ripe raspberries mmmmmm) which wafts from large ruffled salmon blooms, once opened. This superstar rose is from England. Just Joey roses were inducted into the Hall of Fame by the World Federation of Rose Societies in 1994. The flowers are well-formed with large, high-centred buds, supported by long, straight and upright stems. Each blousy flower can grow to 8-12.5 cm wide. Hybrid Teas are the world's most popular type of rose by choice due to their color and flower form. With their long stems, it gives them the advantage, over others, as cut flowers. Most shrubs tend to be very upright, reaching up to 1.8 metres and are recurrent-flowering (flowering constantly during the season, unlike wild dog roses that flower once).

THE TEARS OF THE ROSE…

’It is further believed that on a certain day in the year the rose has a heart of gold.’ I am still hopeful for the future and the future of our children, but like everything in life and roses in particular, beware of the thorns… I’m optimistic, there is not as much hate as they’d like us to believe. The Rose is a flower of great Symbolism and importance in many cultures, mythologies and religions. I started growing roses because Paul told me how much he loved them; I never had them because I thought they were very high maintenance and ‘difficult’, how wrong I was! This is Just Joey, a heavenly scented, lousy rose, salmon pink, in June the first ones, a few roses just at their peak perfect as it started to rain...

THE SADNESS of JUST JOEY, A ROSE.

ROSE-WEEK I promised. From the garden. You know, I was born after the second world war, when people were still in shock/ mourning and slowly recovering from the horror they had heard and witnessed, the loss, they swore never again, several times over and yet, here we are… a very different kind of war, but nevertheless equally scary and horrible. NONE of us are safe anywhere, we seem to live in this bubble of false freedom? Religion against religion, ethnic groups against ethnic groups… Where does all this hatred come from? We are living in such plentiful! Why do I get this notion that it SHOULD and COULD WORK? Ach, just my thought for the day. Forever the optimist!

ADIEU l'AMI...

Sadly, one morning a friend lost his battle against cancer... he was only 49! We are now only left with images and memories. He loved flowers... so this one is for him, yes, even the flowers cry! This is a tea-rose, name 'Just Joey', from the garden... I don't talk to flowers, they talk to me and I gladly listen! It speaks of opulence, splendour, prosperity, richness, voluptuousness, sumptuousness and luxuriance , but also a certain dark secrecy... , having just opened from the bud in delicious curves... It has a fragrance to die for...like raspberries, mmmmmmm View LARGE and On PROPER Black For years I 'experimented' in the studio, to get that Flemish painter's light?

PARADISE REGAINED.. ROSES

Our garden is at its peak, the roses exploded. Just Joey Rose next to the white climbing spray-Roses. So opulent, swaying gently in the breeze and painted in the dappled sunlight.

IL PLEURE dans mon coeur...

R.I.P John Hurt https://youtu.be/8hLLL6gyUvg The seduction of Claude Debussy I created many an image with this music! Il Pleure dans mon Coeur poem by Verlaine Il pleure dans mon coeur Comme il pleut sur la ville. Quelle est cette langueur Qui pénêtre mon coeur? O bruit doux de la pluie Par terre et sur les toits! Pour un coeur qui s’ennuie, O le chant de la pluie! Il pleure sans raison Dans ce coeur qui s’écoeure. Quoi! nulle trahison Ce deuil est sans raison. C’est bien la pire peine De ne savoir pourquoi, Sans amour et sans haine, Mon coeur a tant de peine. It Rains in My Heart (English translation) It rains in my heart As it rains on the town, What languor so dark That it soaks to my heart? Oh sweet sound of the rain On the earth and the roofs! For the dull heart again, Oh the song of the rain! It rains for no reason In this heart that lacks heart. What? And no treason? It’s grief without reason. By far the worst pain, Without hatred, or love, Yet no way to explain Why my heart feels such pain!

A kiss is the touch or pressing of one's lips against another person or an object. Cultural connotations of kissing vary widely.

A STAR is BORN... ROSE...

"If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars." Ginny Cantrell Unfurling the divine mystery which resides curled, often unseen, within the heart of every human being. Its center well protected by many layers, the rose died like so many, without ever opening. I wanted to capture the mystery the red rose bud seemed to hold. I gave it a dramatic stagelight, some full, some just stroking the rims of the petals and going off into the deepest darker corners. I know, not everybody's cup of tea, but I think there is a 'need' for creative photography, if not for you... for me... hihi.

WOUNDED LOVE… ROSE

WOUNDED LOVE… ROSE This beautiful bud sadly already wounded by the elements. It looks like a painting to me, yet NO manipulation! "It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar-tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone." quote by Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy A week of ROSES from our garden… vibrant, a rich unusual red, and they smell heavenly, the rich fragrance of Summer fruits!

THE MYSTERY OF THE RED ROSE...

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! Unfurling the divine mystery of perfection which resides curled, often unseen, within the heart of every human being. Its center well protected by many layers, the rose died like so many, without ever opening, without releasing its secret. I wanted to capture the mystery the red rose seemed to hold. I gave it a dramatic sidelight, some just stroking the rims of the petals and going off into the deepest darker corners. I know, not everybody's cup of tea, but I think there is a 'need' for creative photography, if not for you... for me... hihi.

SUPPORT the PHOTOGRAPHER: BUY DIRECT! I am very interested in all things 'plant'. I knew full well this early bud was not going to open, so I 'dissected' it, to discover the intimate secrets...

All I can say is experiment, experiment, experiment... my exposure settings are irrelevant because each flower, light source is different. Make it your own!

REMINISCING… ROSE

This Rose, Fire and Ice, reminiscing on beauty gone. I guess we all do that at some point as we grow more mature. Strange how some flowers just drop their petals… and others just dry up and hold on. I always said I would ‘age’ with grace, yet, sometimes your body has other ideas? LOL. I am not complaining, I enjoy my time here, every day. There are advantages on growing ‘wiser’ with years. The one thing I absolutely dislike is ageism! That has changed in our today society, the world belongs to the young? NOT! We are the ones with the experience! I would love the respect for age back, I am all there, better than ever, sharper than many… I work harder than most, sleep less than others… I am extremely prolific.

ANTIQUE ROSES…

Brought in from the garden, photographed from all sides, cleaned up and uploaded and then left to dry… I was waiting to see what would happen. Would the dry nicely or would the petals drop.

NATURE MORTE...

PLEASE READ THIS: MY PHOTOS ARE ONLY FOR SALE DIRECTLY FROM ME, VIA THE WEBSITE! Beauty doesn't last, goodness does! Your cheeks and other bits may sag... your heart stays put! I see beauty in 'almost' everything! Most of the times, roses will last around 6/7 days, then the petals drop... For some reason, these held on and just dried, shrivelling, slowly withering, keeping their beauty as long as possible. I thought they looked beautiful, carefully brought them into the studio, yes, lost a few petals under-way but they were clinging strongly enough, now they'll marvel FOREVER! I gave them a last moment of glory. A small series. THANX for ALL your comments and visits, so appreciated. Each time I think... that's it, there's only so much you can do with flowers... and yet again and again, I'll see something new. Being creative is not a choice... it is an urge in me.

The White Rose...

The White Rose was a non-violent/intellectual resistance group in Nazi Germany, consisting of students from the University of Munich and their philosophy professor. The group became known for an anonymous leaflet campaign, lasting from June 1942 until February 1943, that called for active opposition to dictator Adolf Hitler's regime. The six core members of the group were arrested by the Gestapo (German secret police) and they were executed by decapitation in 1943. The text of their sixth leaflet was smuggled by Helmuth James Graf von Moltke out of Germany through Scandinavia to the United Kingdom, and in July 1943 copies of it were dropped over Germany by Allied planes, retitled "The Manifesto of the Students of Munich." Another member, Hans Conrad Leipelt, who helped distribute Leaflet 6 in Hamburg, was executed on January 29, 1945 for his participation. Today, the members of the White Rose are honored in Germany amongst its greatest heroes, since they opposed the Third Reich in the face of death.

MANDALA… ROSES…

I declare February LOVE, romance and beauty month. For PEACE, always.. The meaning of mandala comes from Sanskrit meaning "circle." Even though it may be dominated by squares or triangles, a mandala has a concentric structure. Mandalas offer balancing visual elements, symbolising unity and harmony. The goal of the mandala is to serve as a tool on our spiritual journey as it symbolises cosmic and psychic order. The Hindus were one of the first people to use a mandala as a spiritual tool, but the mandalas most individuals are familiar with, are ones made by Buddhists. These duo-toned roses are small and dainty and non-fragrant.

EL GRECO'S VELVET...

#abfav_holidays_theme EL GRECO'S VELVET... This beauty was just one, taken just outside the little El Greco museum (that closes whenever they feel like it?) up the mountain outside Fodele, on the island of Crete. EL Greco, (1541-1614) Cretan-born painter, sculptor, and architect who settled in Spain and is regarded as the first great genius of the Spanish School. He was known as El Greco (the Greek), but his real name was Domenikos Theotocopoulos; and it was thus that he signed his paintings throughout his life, always in Greek characters, and sometimes followed by Kres (Cretan). Little is known of his youth, but he was born in Fodele. Only a few works survive by him in the Byzantine tradition of icon painting, notably the recently discovered Dormition of the Virgin (Church of the Koimesis tis Theotokou, Syros). In 1566 he is referred to in a Cretan document as a master painter; soon afterwards he went to Venice (Crete was then a Venetian possession), then in 1570 moved to Rome. The miniaturist Giulio Clovio, whom he met there, described him as a pupil of Titian, but of all the Venetian painters Tintoretto influenced him most, and Michelangelo's impact on his development was also important.

THE TEARS OF THE ROSE...

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below. In the east it is still believed that the first rose was created from a tear of the prophet Mohamed, and it is further believed that on a certain day in the year the rose has a heart of gold.’ It is wonderful that sites like these brings so many of us together, it has left me more hopeful for the future and the future of our children, but like everything in life and roses in particular, beware of the thorns… I'm optimistic, there is not as much hate as they’d like us to believe. The Rose is a flower of great Symbolism and importance in many cultures, mythologies and religions.I started growing roses because Paul told me how much he loved them; I never had them because I thought they were very high maintenance and ‘difficult’, how wrong I was! This is a 'FIRE and ICE' rose, in June the weather turned bad for a couple of days and a few roses were just at their peak perfect, so as it started to rain, quickly rushed out to photograph, my Nikon unharmed!

TEARS ON ROSES... We NEED PEACE!

Flanders is in the grip of the great war commemoration. Yes, the one they said: NEVER AGAIN! So many war cemeteries, such madness, such sadness. A visit to one can not leave you untouched. It fills your heart with deep sorrow. There are no winners in war. Both sides massive losses. On one of our meanderings through my beloved Flanders, we came across a War cemetery (German) in Langemark/Poelkapelle, row upon row of tombstones with multiple names... and more... unknown... Visitors from all over, judging by the number-plates on cars and coaches. There is no laughter, just silence... The odd wreath lying, weeping!

JUST JOEY in THE GARDEN...

I bought this new rose for the garden, because Paul loves them. I was a little worried.. I had never grown roses... It had a label, with the name and a washed out image. Never realised it would be an old-fashioned rose, so plump, so fragrant, so blousy,so beautiful. This Summer, they are really suffering with all the rain and wind, the abnormally cool temperatures, I feel sorry for them, and bringing them in, mmm, not really, they do not last long or buds don't even open, definitely an outside rose, like so many flowers really! Another aspect of Summer... ALWAYS BETTER on properBlack Giving my flowers SOUL?
