Tonight is a tired out Thursday, so a quick post so I can go to sleep.
The post will be mostly pictures as I share a series of pictures that show the life of a rose bloom. My new Mister Lincoln rose bush is the model for the pictures.
First we have a rose bud where we start to see the color of the rose.
Then the bud starts to open.
The outer petals spread out to let the growing bloom open.
The petals start to unfold as they are warmed by the sun.
The petals unfurl and the bloom starts to fade and lose structure.
Petals are soon littering the ground below the rose bush.
A few petals stay attached but will soon either fall off or fade away.
Then the petals dry out and it is time to cut back the stem so that new blooms can begin their cycle.
With the exception of the first picture these are all of the same rose bloom. My new Mister Lincoln rose blooms do not last very long. They bloom quickly and fade even quicker.
I hope you enjoyed this look at the life of a rose bloom.
