outta the blue

This was taken after a heavy rain at the Parnell Rose Garden.
I was amazed the roses didn't get soaked or battered by the rain
but looked rather refreshing.
The color actually changed with time.
Outta the blue is one of the many thousands of rose hybrids.
I always enjoy taking photos of nature especially flowers after a rain.

Bob: this shot was taken in auckland. Singapore is too hot for roses.

Joy: thanks.

Did they smell nice? Many of ours don't smell like the wilder types.
I just took a pic of roses today too!

MOI: Summer is a time for roses. I love roses. Faintly only...perhaps it was midday! Shall visit your site now. Thanks.
