Ruby Tuesday Too

This rose is actually a salmon color. It was my mother's favorite rose and my dad planted several of them around their home in Tulsa. Mom passed away in 2003. After Dad passed in 2009, I transplanted this rose to our home in Bella Vista. In 2015 we moved into Bentonville, so I dug it up and brought it to our new residence. Every time I see this plant bloom it reminds me of the love that my parents had for one another.

So what happens when you have some back light from the morning sun and you add a little front fill light with your flash? I think you get a more dramatic image, but that's just me.

Have a blessed day.


  1. What a great story behind this beautiful plant too. That's the very best part.

    Great photography too.

    Have a blessed Ruby Tuesday. ☺

  3. That is a beautiful rose and what a remembrance of your parents. My mother-in-law transplanted her mother's lilies from western Oklahoma and I love them. I knew the lady also so the flowers remind me of her.
