On a rainy Sunday morning, I love the rose garden at my local botanical garden because the roses are even more beautiful than usual when the sun peeks through the clouds! This unfurling bud of a hybrid tea rose is “Love & Peace,” an All-America Rose Selection for 2002. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/10, 1/500 sec., ISO 200)
