Roses in the rain

Beautiful roses in my parents' garden. The smell is incredible, I wish I could convey it through the screen.
I stood in the rain and photographed them because, yes, it is raining again....

The gardens around us are overflowing with flowers. I'm going to at least one open gardens this weekend.

Dad has cut me a few roses to bring home. I've arranged them in an old bowl that I found at Newark Antiques Fair a couple of weeks ago. It is too dark to photograph them this evening. I'll try tomorrow...which, incidentally, might prove to be a rather interesting day. I'll report back soon.
