The above rose is a Jacob’s Ladder Rose. It is in its semi-open state, not quite a bud, not quite fully revealed. This particular rose is not the climbing rose, but is the bush. It sits in an area in front of my home.
I took this photograph fifteen years ago. What attracted me, and still does, was the vibrancy of the tones. It spoke to me of vibrancy, enthusiasm, and boldness. Yet, I also saw a poignant side to it, because of the way the narrow, green stems were positioned, almost reminding me of arms hovering, encircling the innerness.
Have a wonderful week. Stay safe, and stay well.
