Yellow Roses, and apricot and indeterminate – mixed reds and yellows, orangey, pinkish-yellow – all of those. It’s the last roses post.
I’ve read somewhere that the yellow rose signifies friendship, but in another source, it was treachery or jealousy. I guess it depends what university you went to. The white signifies purity, and the red rose we take as meaning love, but for the Romans, it was secrecy.
Whatever meaning we place on them, they’re beautiful and fragrant and as ephemeral as life.
Odd buds, tight and jealous of their colour:
Are these pink, but turned orange-gold by sunset?
Pink and yellow:
In the red orange spectrum:
next: flowers of different sorts…
White roses always look so delicate – either translucent or rich and creamy, and they are perhaps the most difficult in regards to background.
Delicate and/or translucent:
finally, creamy & rich:
Next will be yellow…
The second of the flowers – Pink roses this time. Sometimes, the light confuses the colour, but they were all, I promise you, pink – or pink & white, or pink going into white, or pinkish. Just – well, definitely not red. Mostly 🙂
These two were caught in brilliant sunlight.
As was this bud:
Caught in sunsetty light which golds their pale colour:
Some rather lovely buds:
And varying pink roses, including an astonishingly stripped one, in varying shades of pink, and in various stages of opening:
and this – so rich and full:
what colour next? White? Yellow? Or will it be other flowers….
I have a month’s worth of roses – & other flowers. So many that I’ve spilt the post & colour coded them 🙂 So,here are:
Red roses in other people’s gardens.
Some worked really well, some were buds one day,open the next. Some are sunlight, some are shadowed.
Roses caught in sunsetty light:
this one really worked. It’s not as sharp as it could be, but for some reason, it still works. The beauty of this individual rose overcomes all my shortcomings as a photographer.
Against the sky:
And finally, in normal light:
& I love this one too.
So that’s the red roses. What next? Pink? Yellow? White? …
