When people photograph roses, they usually photograph the flower we call a rose. As I discovered today, the flower isn’t the only photogenic part of the rose.

From the beginning, when the tightly wound buds first appear
To the end, when the petals have fallen and the rose hips begin to form
I found beauty.
