Expectations


This cold but sunny weekend saw me heading over to a public garden where I expected to find all sorts of autumn flowers. I couldn't have been more wrong... - not a single mum, dahlia, Chinese lantern or Japanese Anemone to be found, but a rose garden with rows of wonderful roses, still blooming!

As this might be one of the last roses for this year I thought it to be just perfect for Lisa's Creative Exchange. I can't wait to see all the interesting photos being linked up over at  Lisa's, I'll meet you there!

Have a wonderful week!

Wonderful dof and such a pretty colour. It's crazy but some of my plants I cut down last month are starting to flower again!

Such a lovely shade of pink. Thanks for giving us this touch of color in our day.

A lovely capture- particularly love the bud that's cosied in on the side and the light of the pink flowers in the background.

Rosie, you nailed this one!!!
It is absolutely gorgeous, and just my opinion, but definitely one of your very best. The depth of field alone is amazing, but add to it the colors, and...perfection!

Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a great evening!

P.S. Sure do hope this is on Flickr, because I really do want to give it a big pink star!!!

I visited a college campus a few weeks ago and saw the same thing -- roses blooming everywhere.

This is such a beautiful, bright pink. Very cheerful on a Monday. :)

Roses are so surprising, aren't they? I've seen some bushes still blooming in this area, too. I even have one small rose on a potted bush.
