Well, I’ve been a flower taking nerd so far this season. The Flower Season that is. I’ve taken nearly 2000 images of flower so far this season. Out of those, I’ve found nearly 600 in my goal to reach 730 images of flowers this year. The season is only a quarter of the way done, it’s been a spectacular year for flowers. I can not walk by the garden without wanting to take some images. I could probably reach 1000 images of flowers this year. Out of all the different types of flowers I’ve created digital images of, the rose is by far the most prevalent. I’ve found 72 images of different varieties of roses so far this year. The public rose gardens in Portland have the varietal type of rose posted in each garden, so we know the particular variety of each rose. This year, I’ve kept special attention to these postings so hopefully not only will you be seeing a rose in my posts, but on many of the images you’ll get to see the special variety of the rose in each image.
This particular rose in today’s post is a Tiffany Rose. Very soft pink petals with just a hint of yellow emanating from it’s center. The color yellow in a rose symbolizes joy, gladness, and friendship, the pink represents love, gratitude and appreciation. This Tiffany Rose brings those two meaning together into one flower.
To celebrate the number of images I’ve found so far this year, I want to present some of these 72 images of roses I’ve found. Beginning June 1st, I’m going to post a Rose image every day for 21 days. Why 21? I don’t know, just seemed like a good number. So, if you visit often you’ll get to see some of the beautiful roses I’ve come across this year. It’s been a great experience finding all these roses.
Oh, and wanted to give profs to the 2015 Festival of Roses in Portland. Congratulations on another great festival.
