Roses are #red- #SundayStills #Photography Challenge


This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge is perfect for Valentine’s Day- the color RED.

You can check out all the entries on Terri Webster Schrandt’s blog here.

Red is one of my favorite colors. It’s rich and vibrant, and according to Chinese lore, a sign of good fortune.

I’m always fighting black rot, but the roses are so beautiful I don’t mind a few straggly leaves.

“If I had a rose for every time I thought of you, I’d be picking roses for a lifetime.”

Swedish Proverb

If I had more room, I would fill it with roses!

Here are a few more images highlighting the color red.

I better quit before I’m out of image room! lol

Happy Valentine’s Day!

      1. It was lovely – I didn’t work [smile]. It’s been a tough six weeks so not working on the weekend is a bonus.

    Jacquie, you love roses as much as I do. What a lovely collection you have. The red barn calls my name, too. What is there about red that is so wonderful. I think there must be endorphins in the color red. 🙂

        Roses are the universal love flower, I think. The first picture came from the Woodlake Rose Garden where I donated a lot of time and learned so much about roses. This was the section that I adopted. https://tchistorygal.net/2020/01/12/always-write-adopts-a-section-of-the-woodlake-rose-garden/ When I found out I had cancer and needed surgery some of the garden “regular bench sitters” helped take care of it for me. Now that we’ve moved, we have student volunteers who have done most of the work.

            Yes, you have roses, so you know. Having 1500 of them is a little overwhelming.
