June, July Roses

 

June roses from two gardens which include rose gardens:  the Brooklyn Botanical garden and the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx.

Both are set in low-lying areas. 

You look down.  So concentrated is the beauty of the sight that you misdoubt your eyes.  You start running in case they are mirages which might disappear before you reach them.

These photos are from June 2015.

  1. C’etait un des plus beaux jours de ma vie: la pluie et le soleil et la chaleur. C’est une combinaison qui me rendre vivante de chaque cellule de mon corps.

    Thank you for noticing this, Louis!
