Red Roses in a White Vase

This simple bouquet of two roses and some baby’s breath will last forever (or until it gets so dusty the roses don’t look red any longer) because I dried the roses by hanging them upside down in a cool spot for several months.

After I took the photo, I tried a few filters in the Topaz Studio program which is a free download.

Roses are angiosperms,
Violets are, too.
Sugar is C12H22O11
We know this from peer review.

Some poems rhyme,
Some don’t.

  1. At the risk of being called insensitive. . .
    Roses are red, violets are blue
    I’m a schizophrenic, and so am I.

    These photos are beautiful! No need to learn how to paint with photo aps.

    On another note. I loved viewing the baby robins and owlets. Very National Geographic. You have a great eye.


    • Thanks Joy. I guess I’d just rather take photos and play with them than pick up a pencil or brush!


  3. Each one is more beautiful! I think they are worth framing. Then you could hang them one at a time depending on your mood. 😊


    • I do hang them, sort of. I have one of those digital photo frames. It sits on the ledge in the kitchen.


There, I'm finished. Now it is your turn:
