Photohunt: Share any photo
The photohunt theme this week is wide open. We can share any photograph. I decided to pick a photograph that I had taken this week. Since this is mother's day weekend, I am posting photographs from my yellow rose bush. My mother died in 1990 when she was 65, and I always associate yellow roses with her because she loved them so much. For many years after my mom died, my yellow rose bush had its first rose of the season, on her birthday in June.
However, in recent years the bush switched over to having its first blooms around mother's day which is also very appropriate. Although my other roses were very early this year and have been blooming for many weeks, the bush I think of as my mother's roses, had its first roses this week. I took the second shot on Tuesday and the other two on Thursday.
I had intended to pick one shot for this week's theme, and decided to select which one of the roses I would have cut to take to my mom if she was still alive. Since I decided that I would have taken her all three, I am posting all three. Happy mother's day weekend!
