Thank you! They were taken on July 4th and July 8th. Hope the weather cooperates for me to capture them every day through my lens to enjoy in the future … they live for such a brief time!

GORGEOUS rosebuds, Cindi ! I note the July 8 date – very timely for a Margaret Rose. 😀
You can think of that second image as being taken just for you, M-R! 🙂

Very nice photos! Hope they last a long time.

With the unpredictable mountain weather, we never know … but the digital proof will be here long after the beautiful reality has gone.
Now, if I could just capture the wonderful aroma …. 🙂
Super photography! Without giving away any secrets, may I ask what kind of camera you used>
July 9, 2014 at 1:56 pm
No secrets here; I have just my point-and-shoot ones.
I have a 2006 (ancient!) Sony Cybershot of only 5.1 mega pixels that eats batteries if it’s set to anything that uses a flash but has a great zoom lens, and a small Canon Powershoot 14.1 mega pixels that I picked up a couple years ago.
My husband had a lot of fun with his film producer son’s professional camera when we visited them in New Zealand, and would love to get something similar. Some day!
What do you use?

I have a 10 yr old powershot, 5.0 megapixels, state of the art at one time I gues, SD450. I am looking for a new one less than $200.00. I know this one so well, that is the problem!
Plain and simply wonderful: thanks for letting me enjoy these flowers.
Have a good one,

You’re most welcome, Pit! They are so vibrant right now, they need to be shared. 🙂
Very nice! Love roses 🙂

I remember your “rose in the snow” post of January, and although it isn’t winter, there was a cool breeze blowing when I was trying to get the focus … so of course, I thought of you! 🙂

It’s always nice to be thought of 🙂

Beautiful, Cindi. 🙂

Thank you so much, Skye! Your photos of butterflies absolutely captivated me!

Thank you, Cindi. I am so blessed to have met you. I look forward to following along on your journey.

Lovely flowers! I love the unopened buds because they look like a promise of beautiful things to come 🙂

They’re open now, and although beautiful … I like the unopened ones better, for just the reason you write: that promise is enticing! 🙂
Still, unless another magic moment happens in the next two days that I capture through the lens, the opened version will probably make an appearance for this Wednesday’s WW. 🙂
