Thanks for the compliment of my mellow yellow post! A friend and I used to have a candle making business so I had a lot of opportunities to capture a picture.

This is a lovely picture! I love the way that it just tilted to the side. Nice work!

Oh Dianne, that is indeed a gorgee-us rose! BTW don't you want to be interviewed? Or did Daryl interview you already? Happy Ruby Tuesday!

chatty barista - so glad you like my shot :)
I adore candles and your shot was perfect

mary - I've been feeling a bit closed and not much in the wordy mood so I haven't volunteered for an interview. I'm kinda sick of myself at the moment lol

jackie - my son got them for his wife, I used them for a photo op :)
I used to get myself flowers all the time but Siren eats them lol

Jan said...

Lovely, Diane. Very formal looking.

Raven said...

Beautiful shot! I love those yellow flowers down below too. And now I am craving flowers even though they would have to be hidden somewhere safe because Angel would NOT just look. She would poke, chew and push over. She's like that.

Eaton Bennett said...

Now that is Ruby red, lovely! I clicked on the photo and just love the speckles on the green leaves. Nature in her perfect imperfection.

donna said...

whatta lovely rose ;)

Pagan Sphinx said...

It looks so velvety. Makes me long for a vase of them! Lovely photo, Di.

storyteller said...

What a lovely red rose with a deep rich color ... it looks almost too perfect to be real ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Dianne said...

jan- thank you! I try to be elegant now and then ;)

raven - Mia doesn't care at all and Siren only wants them if he thinks he can sit on them lol
so these are pretty safe

eaton - perfect imperfection - what a lovely way to describe nature!

donna - thanks :)

pagan - they were velvety - thanks!!

storyteller - it just ate up the light! such a great little flower :)
