‘Gypsy’ Hybrid Tea

Just when I thought this rose has produced its final floom of 2011, it surprises me with another. I love to rich organge/red coloring of this rose. I took this picture early in the morning, while the dew was still on this rose.. I experimented a bit with a frame. Not sure I like this or not….. What do you think?

    How lovely Chris. I trimmed almost all of my roses back this week. I had to leave a couple that were still throwing on some buds or a bloom. I did not have the heart to cut them off yet. LOL!


  2. What I like about the frame thing is that black right next to the photo stops the eye right there. Some close ups benefit, I think, from the illusion of a little more screen real estate around them, which the white framing provides.

    Great photo of a gorgeous rose.
