Simplicity is a Single Rose

This week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue is "simplicity." It's no secret that I love every flower on this good earth, but roses sit at the top of the list. It might be a bit of a cliche, but to me the essence of simplicity is a single rose. Here are a few images from my own garden. Such simple beauty!

  4. Deceptively simple challenge is not so simple when you see all those roses up close. The texture and shading of each variety speaks volumes. What a lovely entry.
