My rambling roses are beginning to bloom now, and the blossoms are so heavy that I have to hold them up to see their faces. I added some shadow to this one, since (as usual) I got too close to it and washed it out. That changed the color a little. The one below has the true color.
When the whole bush is in bloom, it's a glorious sight!
This is the only photo I was able to get at work today; we were too busy to stop and take pictures. I got too close to this bouquet too, and the flash washed it out. Mel had just misted it, and the little dots of water reflected the light and look white here. The three peonies in the center are a deep coral color and smell heavenly; like nothing else in the world. I hope to be able to get some better photos tomorrow, but since we have four weddings to deliver and set-up, I may not have much time.
