I got home today to find one of my roses has started flowering again, slightly unexpectedly if I’m honest. I normally only get two or three blooms off this bush a year, and I had six a couple of months ago. It stopped flowering, and I assumed that was it!
There seem to be four buds, plus this flower. I’m not sure what I did diferently this year but it seems to have worked.
By the time I got the camera out, the ambient light was all a bit flat, grey and boring. So I broke out the flash, put it on about quarter power and held it above, to the right, and slightly behind the flower – really brings out the translucency of the petals.
I might have another crack at it tomorrow morning if there’s a bit more ambient light about – and possibly with some dew on the petals.
