And they come in (almost) all colours, as you can see from the pictures I took yesterday afternoon at the park:
Yesterday afternoon? Park? On a Wednesday? Yes - I decided to stop working at around 3.00 pm (I was working from home that day); all the tasks I had set myself for the day were finished, and it was simply gorgeous out there! So I grabbed my camera and went out.
I had difficulties finding any purely white roses; there were a few but they were hidden quite well behind green leaves, and I did not want to step into the flower beds (you simply don't do that at the park) to get close enough for a decent picture.
Of course I am aware that there is an almost infinite variety of colours for roses, but these were the ones I saw (and smelled!) yesterday.
Is anyone else reminded of these paintings, or is it just me?
Oh, and of course there's not just roses there at the park - I could have taken hundreds of pictures of all sorts of beautiful flowers. These poppies I found particularly striking:
They were huge, and I can't remember having seen poppies in that particular part of the park before.
I walked on after that (altogether, I walked for almost 2 1/2 hours) and visited a place I had not been to in a long time, but that will have to wait for another post.
