YELLOW ROSE

Rosa banksiae 'Lutea' is an old favorite of mine.
I wrote about it last year. I called that post "Mellow Yellow". This year I couldn't stop myself to feature it again.
This time I cut quite a lot of branches, I snipped off all the green leaves and put the flowers in an old pewter vase.
I then mixed it with a few bits and pieces from my vintage collection and put a blue fabric with roses as background.

Rosa banksiae 'Lutea' är en gammal favorit.
Jag skrev om den förra året och kallade det inlägget "Mellow Yellow".
I år var jag bara tvungen att ta fler bilder och visa den igen.
Den här gången blev det ganska många avklippta grenar, där jag först tog bort alla gröna blad och satte buketten i en gammal tennvas.
Jag valde till lite av mina ihopsamlade vintage saker och satte en blått tyg med blå rosor som bakgrund.

Ett riktigt svenskt foto. Du får visa ett av de andra du tog till 6juni!

Well, you certainly do know how to assemble a harmonious, evocative still life. Bravo!

The yellow roses are wonderful. Leaving them without their greenery really does focus our eye on the yellow.

Pewter's sheen is another magic touch. It is subtle, and reminds me of so many Dutch masters. The reflection's a beaut.

I could take every detail and praise it, but my original sense was the harmony of the entire image.

Best wishes!

Kanske får du dubbla kommentarer av mig, det funkar aldrig nu för tiden. Men så vet du ju att jag har varit här;)

Så fint komponerat foto. Rosa banksiae lutea såg jag häromåret i England. Tror inte att den överlever här i Sverige.
