Brilliant OrangeThursday, June 19, 2014
I have blog friends, blog viewers that I don’t know and some that I know are blog viewers but don’t tell me. I have facebook friends, facebook friends that I don’t know and some that I know are face book viewers (of my blog links) but don’t tell me.
Some like my “girlie” pictures and a violinist friend dislikes my ventures into rock ‘n’ roll but really appreciates when I write about personal and family matters. There are quite a few of those girlie picture admirers who must damn the rose season. They know that I am seduced by their (the roses) fragrance and their beauty. They mostly ignore these pictures which are almost entirely direct scans.
I feel that today I can please all except the violinist but then maybe not.
Rosa ‘Westerland’ was the first orange coloured flower that my wife accepted in the garden. Her ideals are white and blue (dislikes my pink roses and the yellow ones). Rosa ‘Westerland’ has an odd (but attractive fragrance) that I would define as synthetic apricot jam. Rosemary loves Westerland and so did the magazine Canadian Gardening a few years ago. I believe that the cover might have marked the first ever photograph on a Canadian magazine that was not a photograph. I would call it a scanograph and I am a scanographer.
With that all out of the way you could now enjoy the picture of Yuliya the Dominatrix (taken in my Malibu) and of the Rosa ‘Westerland’. The latter was scanned today.
