More Roses...

Roses! It's June at the beach....

These are hybrid roses, from BJ's or Trader Joe's.

Beautiful, aren't they? If a teensy bit past their prime, ooops....I actually like them open and fragrant.

The petals are exactly the colors of this treasured, dived conch shell from my collection...

And here they are captured on an art musuem card....I am amazed at the skill, the perfection of the painter's rendering.

And the roses are not even the focus of the small (9" x 17") painting, just a perfect addendum...

Not bad for $9.99 a bunch, huh?

And a few in my yard, the photos are blurry because of the wind....
