  1. A little faded, with a few wrinkles, but still beautiful, the rose is definitely a survivor. Wonderful shot, Camilla.

  5. Wow, that’s very interesting. It’s such a pretty look too, very papery. Amazing how much color is still there, right? Like butterscotch. (I love Tony’s comment above!)

    • I was amazed to find it, and in such good shape too. It’s been a quite mild winter but in the whole rosary this was the only one πŸ™‚ A toughie!

      • “In the whole rosary” – that’s a new expression for me – I will have to ask my formerly Catholic partner if he’s familiar with it! πŸ˜‰ Have a happy week, Camila!

  6. So lovely, Calee.
    I love fading roses almost as much as brand new ones.

  7. Beautiful – even in its advanced stages. I love the textures in this – and you have caught that blurred background perfectly.
    Another great image! I like it πŸ™‚
