Razzle Dazzle

The other day we were doing a photo shoot for Op: Love Reunited.  It's a free portrait shoot for military who are deploying, deployed and for the homecoming.

During the session, we went to the Rose Garden at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma and these particular roses caught my attention.  For a brief moment I was distracted from the job on hand.

However, I knew it would be a good fit for Martha's Color Carnival.  The roses are an explosion of reds and yellows.  I hope you enjoy the colors.

  5. These roses are beautiful.. I have been reading about roses lately and it seems that the first roses were all single or simple double roses as we see here. The multi-layered petaled rose that we think of as classic, came much later.

  13. Monica, such a great photo blog. I live in the Seattle area also, so I especially love what you've done. I'm really late in returning your visit, but I am grateful for it nevertheless. I see you're doing two of my fave memes. Ruby Tuesday and Skywatch Friday. Great posts!
