Flower Diptychs - Roses

This is my favourite Blue Moon rose. It doesn't only look fabulous it is also scented and grows like mad. It covers a whole fence panel in my garden and looks fantastic.

All my own images, except for:


This rose is actually called "Happy Birthday". It's a lovely simple rose (not many petals), with lots of colour - from the palest apricot to the deepest pink on the edge of the petals.

All my own images, except for:

 All images my own, except for:

This is a wild rose growing in my garden. It planted itself there and it's so beautiful that I don't have the heart to rip it out. This diptych shows the heart of one of the blossoms in full bloom and the other of one that is fading - the petals have fallen off and all that's left is its heart...

All my own images, except for:

All my own images, except for:
