Oh dear, Friday the 13th. Hope we all dodge the gremlin bullets.
This is way off the subject of roses and gardens, but I wanted to share a photo I took yesterday evening at sunset and turned into a note card for Bebops Place. This card features a magical play of light and color on a hilltop at sunset. It had been raining all day. The sky began to clear just as the sun was setting. The foreground begins with a hint of green, then a layer of golden weeds, and then a field of ripening corn ending in a hedgerow of trees. Distant hills in the mist can be seen beyond the field. The partly cloudy sky creates a glorious pattern of pink, gold, yellow, orange, mauve, blue and white.
Okay, here are some roses...
I love this card from Beachwalker. It's definitely different from the standard hearts and flowers approach. Romantic black card with a distressed heart and text makes for an edgier greeting card - maybe even goth? Customize with your sentiments if you wish!
This card from Botany_Boy features the marvelous artwork of Pierre Joseph Redoute (1759-1840). I love the old roses and this Rosa centifolia foliacea is just a wonderful example.
Welcome to Bebop's Place
Beauty has been defined as "The quality that gives pleasure to the mind or senses and is associated with such properties as harmony of form or color, excellence of artistry, truthfulness, and originality." Since our responses are totally subjective, I can only speak to what moves me.
I want to share the beauty! I have created a variety of floral products for my Zazzle stores, Bebop's Place and Bebop's Weddings, using my original photographs and designs. I am also constantly amazed at the gorgeous floral products available from the rest of the Zazzle community. I am hoping others will enjoy this blog and even be moved to purchase some of these lovely items for gifts or just for the pleasure of having such beauty around.
