Roses! It’s time to take a break and smell the roses.

This is State of Grace. This rose was bred to resemble its old fashioned English cousins, but exhibit a rounded habit & robust disease resistance.

The shape is cupped & quartered. #Grandiflora

This rose is a David Austin rose, Abraham Darby. It’s a beautiful rose, but quite delicate overall.
This rose is called Marc Chagall. I love the splashes & stripes of pink against yellow.

Each bloom is its own unique variation. I love the colors. ImageImageImageImage
The peachy rose is Jumping for Joy. It’s parent is Julia Child, so I took a chance on it and am pleased as it is performing as advertised.

In addition to an abundance of blooms, I see new red growth coming against the dark green foliage.

Below are Heaven Scent: coral new bloom. ImageImageImageImage
The yellow rose is Pop Art (Grandiflora) & the other pink/yellow rose is State of Grace.

Pop Art has a lovely fragrance. ImageImageImageImage

Timeline cleanser: Rain and roses.

🌿Tournament of Roses (excellent rose, Blooms constantly);

🌿Heavens Scent (V. Good rose, blooms a lot & is tenacious);

🌿Easy Does It (V. Good rose - impressed with it this year 3 yrs old).

🌿Sweet Madame Blue (new);
Pop Art is another new rose I am testing.

Last year I bought Marc Chagall which is another really pretty sunset pink and yellow striped rose.
This is First Prize, which like Tournament of Roses is an older but very healthy & reliable bloomer.

I can’t remember the name of the climbing pink rose & it’s driving me crazy.

Arrangement featuring Sombreuil, Jean Giorno, Heaven Scent.

Sombreuil is an excellent old rose.

Homemade Blood Orange Marmalade is scrumptious and easy to make.

I have two trees that produced a good crop & I didn’t want them to go to waste so I did this experiment making marmalade.

Blood oranges are in season now and are available at most markets. Image
Step one: wash the fruit. Image
Step two: peel the skin, avoiding too much of the bitter pith and place peels in a pan of water.

Step three: boil the peels for about 15 minutes or so and drain & cool. ImageImageImage

Please join me on a photo tour of beautiful & tranquil Père-Lachaise cemetery?

A visit to the Père-Lachaise cemetery is always on my itinerary — it is always so relaxing exploring the paths, lanes & trails as you always see something new & different & leave feeling relaxed.
This 1995 infrared photo is my favorite and standard I seek to duplicate each time I visit Père-Lachaise cemetery. 🤷‍♀️

Infrared photography is #oldskoll, but today I played in PhotoShop to see if I could render my newer color images w/ similar effects achieved as infrared film.
Here is a color image & its twin “infrared” rendered version.
