I love roses and I'm always amazed at the way they look when they bloom. Here are my first blooms of the year.
This one is my favorite. I just love the way the color fades to light from the tips of the bloom.
This one has the biggest blooms. I have tried painting pictures of these roses for several years and I haven't gotten it correct yet. I don't know why I have such a difficult time with them. I especially like the rain drops that are showing on the pedals and leaves. More rain is due to come today and I wanted to get these pictures before they were pelted with more rain. Have a blessed day.
