How Sweet is a Rose?

I took this photo of one of my roses about a week ago. Actually I was thrilled because I found it before the Japanese Beetles had it for breakfast. And the professionals say that early morning shooting is best because of the good light – little do they know.

This week I went out to get an image of a moon flower seed pod and as I started back to the house, I noticed the dew covering this very same rose bush.

The roses and leaves look like they are freshly sugared and ready to be put on a wedding cake.

How sweet!
