How about buds!

Since we've finished the alphabet up I'm missing seeing all the lovely pictures. I don't know about you but I have tons of photos of buds that I hardly every get to post. Usually we all post the open blooms.

In the early spring when I'm starved for a rose I start photographing the roses as the tiny buds start to grow and in the fall when it's getting really cold and I figure the buds may not have a chance to open I photograph them too. Here are some of my buds.

RE: How about buds!

seil and Krista,
I love your photo interpretations of your rosebuds. They're lovely. For some reason, I think HTs produce the most beautiful buds. Maybe it's the high centers. I'd never thought much about it till now. I wish I had a few pics to contribute. Thanks for posting these. Diane

Love all your bud photos. I can "almost" smell them.

RE: How about buds!

I've never really focused on buds, but have somewhat accidentally photographed a few.

Lady of Shalott bud--first bloom ever on this new bush last spring. I was so excited.

Love & Peace bud--you can tell I'm partial to pinks or apricots blended with yellows.

Well Being-- some of these buds are simply beautiful, aren't they. Good subject, Seil! Look at this one!

Dublin Bay climber-- bud and half-opened bloom

Eden climber--the bud is not as pretty as the opened bloom, however.

Mother's Day Polyantha--buds and a couple half-opened blooms.

Well Being again--this is a picture my daughter took, but I particularly like the buds striped dark rust/red surrounding the opened bloom. I must see if I can get some really nice pictures of this combination this coming spring.

Pretty Jessica--buds surrounding a fully opened bloom. Actually, I have lots with this combination. I like showing a rose in various stages of blooming.

Elle --bud/half-opened bloom. Another one of my pink/yellow blends!

Little Sunset (mini)--I remember I took this picture because I thought it was rather funny the way the buds were opening--kind looked like toy butterflies hovering over the plant from a distance.

Yes, Seil, I miss our alphabet postings also. Alas, what will we do with time on our hands waiting for spring to arrive? LOL

Beautiful buds everybody! Those minis are gorgeous Seil! I particularly like SNOW RUBY and STARS & STRIPES.

I meant to add, Seil, that your photos are exquisite as usual. You do the solo rose thing so very well!

I agree with you on seil's photos, Kate, but you have some lovely bud photos here, too. I particularly like the pink-apricot blends. They might inspire me to try some bud photography myself.
Krista, I love Gruss and Pink Promise--all the pinks look extra lovely. Thanks for posting everyone. Diane

Anne, love your buds from Marie Victorin--what a charming bouquet. Also nice are Morgangruss, Golden Princess, and Sunbonnet Sue--all so soft and delicate looking in lovely blended shades.

Thanks everyone!

Really lovely shades of pink, Krista!

Love all the blends in yours, Kate!

Wonderful selection, Anne!

I really enjoy seeing all the different shapes that the buds form, long, fat, round or pointy, and then think about how the open blooms look in comparison. It's very interesting.
