Lancaster’s red rose
Far from my fav’rite colour –
Too cheesy by far!
I have not always disliked red roses, but I’d never buy them or be happy to receive them. It harks back to a distant episode in my past… White roses, however, are amongst my favourites and I bought myself a bunch a few weeks ago, purely to photograph, though they gave me much, much more. They had the most delightful, heady bouquet, which was so unexpected and they lingered on, slowly unfurling their waxy petals, for a couple of weeks – far longer than I had expected!
I did cheat and colour one of the roses for the purposes of illustration!! 😉
