Stunning photo. It's hard to stop staring at it.

Ralph said...

This is such a beautiful flower, and in your take, I see many different textures that reflect the ambient light just a little bit differently. A great picture!

Rose said...

Very beautiful! Almost, but just not quite as beautiful as my Little Bright Eyes. We spent the day down there...Lorelei is growing. And so precious.

luna miranda said...

what could be more perfect than a red, red rose?

Missy said...

I can almost feel the leathery texture! I also posted a rose! This is my first for Ruby Tuesday.
Great minds think alike!

storyteller said...

Gorgeous red rose!!! I can hardly believe it, but I've got two red rose buds opening in my yard today and 4 more developing ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Jeri said...

Love seeing the texture of the rose, well done.

quilly said...

This is such a great photo, I took a deep breath expecting to smell the view!

Jim said...

Hi Carletta, is this a red rose? It looks good enough to eat, like it might be red candy.
Where did you find it? Or did you grow it? :-)

Dora said...

WOw! This is a nice one. So perfect. Can i have it? ;)

Eaton Bennett said...

Definitely not velvet...silk, pure raw silk is what that rose looks like. It's beautifully formed. These days very few commercial roses have perfume, does this one? Happy RT! :)

Mar said...

Happy RT!
