Looking for Rose

Flowers are the music of the ground. From earth’s lips spoken without sound.” – Edwin Curran.

This weekend the photo challenge over on Weekly Prompts, the site I share with my partner GC, is our monthly colour challenge, and for September we have chosen the colour Magenta Rose. The challenge will continue throughout the month.


We’re definitely roses, but are we Magenta Rose?

I always thought that pink was pink – well, it seems I was wrong, there are many shades, and it’s not easy getting it just right. 


I would say this Foxglove is Lavender, a little nearer the shade of Magenta, but not quite Magenta Rose!


This is more like it, droplets of rain on Magenta Rose


Maybe slightly on the tips, tricky isn’t it, what do you think?

SONY DSCWhat a beauty!

SONY DSCA Lonely little Petunia, and she’s the right colour too, can you spot the onions? 


 Very nearly Magenta Rose. Lovely shade of Magenta, pretty flowers too.

SONY DSCAnd to finish, a pretty little Impatien in Magenta Rose  

That was fun! Next month it’s GC’s turn, I wonder what colour he will choose?

      Thank you so much Ivor, I didn’t realise just how many photos of flowers I had until I looked through my files the other day. 🙂

    Whatever shade of pink they are, these flowers and their colors are stunning. In particular, the flowers in the second picture are so pretty. So delicate.

    Have a happy and relaxing weekend Sue.

    1. Foxgloves- they grow wild up here, they are poisonous but somehow the animals know not to eat them! Some people regard them as garden weeds. You have a good weekend too, Ginger, and thank you 🙂

    Great article. Forgive me if I am a bit red in the face for not truly appreciating the many elusive shades of rose that are out there. Love the photos. Great work partner. 🙂
