Garry gave me roses and some very pretty white flower for my birthday. Red and white are the two colors I find most complicated to get right. Red, because depending on light, the colors change sometimes dramatically and white because not only does light change it, but they reflect other colors.
Often, when you enlarge them, white flowers have little bits of other colors you didn’t see before. These white flowers actually have a tiny pink stripe on them. I’d never have seen it except for enlarging the photographs on screen. If you look carefully, you can see it in the next photograph.
The only thing I don’t like about roses is how quickly they die. They are perfect and glorious for two days and by the third, they are dropping petals. But right now, they are absolutely perfect and I’m glad I took a few pictures.
