Default Lenten Rose

The Lenten Roses are starting to come up. A nice treat in mid January.

Shot #2 is incredible - it looks like I could reach out and touch it!

They are quite pretty but the blossoms hang down. You really have to pick them or hold them up to see the inside.

Oooooh, my favorite shade of pink! I love #1, such pleasing colors.

Hope your foot's feeling better, Clint.

Doing good - I go to the doctor Tuesday to see if I get the boot or wear another cast for 2 more weeks.

Beautiful Clint, flowers that droop are always challenging to photographers!

My theory is that they party all night so the next day they must be hung over.

Great closeups of a hung over flower. I notice that the first closeup has pollen on the outer pistils, the second one shows them growing but no pollen yet, outstanding.
