The Mayflower, evening scenes

Krista_5NYSeptember 13, 2011

The Mayflower and Mme Isaac Pereire grow next to each other. I like to photograph them together, see the fuchsia and pink together.

These pics are evening scenes, taken back in June.

Mme Isaac Pereire is in the right side of the pic, the dark pink bloom. The Mayflower is behind it.

What a gorgeous set of Mayflower and Mme Isaac Pereire views, Krista! I love how the evening light makes the roses pop out. And the roses complement each other so well.

Thank you, Seil and Serena.

I like to see a variety of pink shades in the garden.

Krista, I'm also amazed at how full your foliage and flowers are! Everything looks so splendid, whereas my roses if they are near trees or shade, they croak or throw fits! The greenery looks so lush!

I think I've been able to plant near the trees as the trees are to the north of the roses.... so the sun puts the tree shadows away from the roses. Still, though, the shade does get near the roses, can't plant any closer to the trees.

Thank you for the kind words about the foliage. The roses do look their best in June.... I like to get some full bush shots at their peak blooming.

Thank you, Mantis, yes, glow is a nice word to describe them.
