Flowers and Vintage Flickr Group - Roses


I am continuing the theme of 'Unusual Containers' - and this time the flowers are Roses.

I wanted to show a very traditional flower like the rose being arranged in some unusual containers. 

Roses are the world's most popular flowers and there are so many of them that you'll find one for every taste.

"There are roses for every soil and position. There are roses for tropical climates and roses that will flourish in the Arctic Circle. Most roses bloom non-stop until the first frost of winter; in warm climates, they flower for 12 months of the year. They tolerate neglect, but respond generously to extra care. For the lazy gardeners - and busy people with little time to waste - roses cannot be beaten." 
[From The Royal Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Roses.]

All images are from my Flickr group Flowers and Vintage - and they all link back to Flickr and the photographer's blog or web site. 

If you enjoy taking photographs of flowers in combination with vintage - join Flowers and Vintage over on Flickr.

I'll be back later in the week with another couple of posts.
