Roses and my Grandmother

Soft Pink Roses…

I didn’t think of this at the time I was photographing them, but as I was looking at these roses on my computer, I realized they reminded me of my grandmother. I remember staying at her house, and the guest room was pink, and the comforter was pink…with roses. Soft, delicate, lovely—that was my grandmother. At least through the eyes of a child. I’m pretty sure she had some chutzpah though. 🙂 Remember, roses have thorns.

I’ll be adding these to Barb Kellogg Photography. They’ll be available in a variety of sizes. I think all three of these would look great together on the wall— bedroom, living room, even a dining room.

    At first, I was thinking it must have been your other gramma because it was violets our gramma loved so specially … and then I remembered, yes, she was quite pleased with the Rose Room … thanks for this memory!

    She would be so proud of your artistry … we all are!
