Thank you Stefania,
This has to be the most beautiful rose garden in the world. I had no tripod and two dogs with me that day. I was visiting Portland, went on a drive no knowing where I would go and I ended up there! What a pleasant surprise.
Thank you for your kind comment. I should add more of what I took there. There was a young lady who sat outside playing her harp and singing. It was so beautiful and serene.

Wow! Who would have ever known. I am so humbled and excited at the same time. I truly give God all the glory and thanks. This rose has so much meaning as I have told, I took this photo just after my Dad's funeral. He was a freelance photographer who is now in the Lord's Presence. I honor Dad with this. He would be so proud.

And the Lord is so awesome. Life has had it's challenges lately and I have just stayed close to the Lord - He knows how to wrap His arms around us and bless us - this is a huge hug from my Lord and Savior.

Thank you all for your lovely, kind words - you are so kind and I appreciate each one of you. God's abundant blessings upon you all.

And a wonderful happy spring shooting. It's been a long winter!!!!

My thoughts exactly Russell. But what can compare to God's beautiful perfection in a rose. Each petal so perfectly orchestrated and simply captured on camera to share. Thank you so much Russell.
