Weekend Snapshot: Number 36

I have been having a pleasant mother's day. My daughter lives very far away but she made a donation in my name to an organization which she knows that I like which was perfect. Bill took me out to a delightful mother's day brunch and the shot below is of the long stem rose that was part of the brunch. They had it wrapped up to take home.Naturally the first thing I did when I got it home was to take a picture of it. Although it doesn't have the fragrance which the roses I grow have, its fun to have a perfect unblemished rose to photograph. I think the roses I grow are beautiful in part because of the slight imperfections but I also enjoy the occasional florist rose like the one above with nairy a flaw.

Happy Mother's Day! Glad you had a lovely day and the perfect gift from your daughter. Your rose looks wonderful! The ones from your garden are "natural" and that makes them very special. A bit of imperfection is an accent and not a disadvantage...

Have a nice Monday !

Hi Carver,
I'm glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day! Sounds relaxing. Love the rose - that was pretty and as you say, perfect. What fun - too - starting a new site. I will pop over there to see the photos, but I, for one, like your rambling prose and meandering thoughts. Fun stuff!

Carver said...

Thanks Dee, I appreciate that.
