Early on in the Spring, back when I had a working camera (forgot what that's like!) I snapped some shots of these English roses. Well, I think they are English roses, anyone know if I'm wrong? They have got to be one of my favorites, right up there with Peonies and Tulips for me. This is the ideal color too, just the slightest shade of pink.
Sigh.

  2. I think they may be ranculous? But I'm not sure! So pretty whatever they're called.

  4. Yes, absolutely English roses.
    If you ever want some of the best ones for your garden, I recommend David Austin Roses. http://www.davidaustinroses.com/ They are one of the most famous country rose providers in the UK - always a prime spot at the Chelsea Flower Show in London - and also sell roses here (will ship around the US). Just looking through their catalogue is a life-affirming experience. Many of these old roses also smell divine.

  7. These are beautiful... The flowers and the photographs. Do you shoot film, or is this just a filter? Hope you get your camera back soon!
