Wow, this is breathtaking, Janet! The lighting, the selective focus, and the array of buds around the central rose--is joie de vivre the name of it? It's a terrific title!

Thanks everybody for the kind comments!! I got to spend some time at this fantastic rose garden near Albany, NY- and "joie de vivre" is not the name of the rose, Colleen (I liked it for the title!)

Janet, a lovely photo and congrats. Take a look at a photo I took almost 40 years ago called Painted Rose in my gallery, I think you'll find it interesting. Nice work, we had the same vision.
