Roses aren’t always red

My house mate got a dozen white roses for Valentine’s Day and she loaned them to me for a photography shoot!  I think they are quite pretty, don’t you?

  1. Those are beautiful shots. Roses are beautiful flowers but I have a love hate relationship with them in the garden. I think they feel the same about me and manage to inflict gashes in my hands and insert their thorns into my scalp when I am weeding underneath them. I prefer being sent bouquets of roses.

    • Haha, I’ve had similar gardening experiences. The botanically oriented part of my brain has always been baffled by them. The ornamental roses are essentially mutant wild roses, with a ridiculous number of petals. It’s the kind of thing that natural selection would’ve driven out of existence but that artificial selection adores. They are pretty though.
