Purple Rose

Purple rose

No matter how beautiful this rose was when it was in full bloom, it would have looked pretty much like any other rose. Beautiful, but after you've seen one you've seen them all. This rose's age makes her a real beauty: unique, open-hearted, mesmerizing.

I haven't tended to comments in the last couple of days, so I have some catching up to do. But I wanted to say a big thank you for all the nice comments on my blog. Your encouragements fill me up with inspiration and gratitude. What a cornucopia of talent and heart our happy group is!

I saw a picture of a red-to-purple dress by Dior that looked exactly like this beautiful rose.

Love ya

Neda said...

She looks like she just woke up...amazing hues.

Debi said...

Rima, I guess that's why it's high fashion. Good taste.

Neda, "she" has just woke up, indeed.

Thanks for sharing!

Who would have thought of taking a picture of a past bloom rose? Debi, that's who. How beautiful, just like you!

my comment got lost on here. That's happened a few times recently - oh well, anyhow I liked the old rose with those deep colours and I thought it would make a great dried flower or a centrepiece for a flower picture.
