APRIL SHOWERS - MAY FLOWERS



That's how it looked a few days ago as rain showers moved in for a day.

Here's what it produced.


Those are called mock roses and they are the first to bloom.




The last three are called Firecracker Roses.

I think you can see why.

  6. Nikon Coolpix. Point-and-shoot. I did use a tripod for the close-ups, though.

  8. There is a rose named 'Firecracker', but the rose in your photos is 'Fourth of July'.
