This is another great Austin Rose. Although you can’t tell it from this photo it has a beautiful apricot color and a strong fragrance. To me the petal count of 76 is the amazing part. Packed into a relatively small flower all the petals make for a great design. Another beautiful, hardy and disease resistant rose from David Austin.

Since it is Sunday come join us at Today’s Flowers .

Bonus Flower for Sunday. Another black and white rose. This rose was featured on this blog a couple of weeks ago in color. I had another opportunity to shoot it in black and white and it shows a little more drama than the colored one.

I would normally prefer to see the color when it comes to flowers but I must say these are dramatic and have a vintage feel.
They are quite lovely!

Classically beautiful! These photos in black and white make me think of Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
