I thought a good way to start the month of May was with a variety of roses. Roses just seem like the perfect flower to represent May. The pink one above was growing in a rose bed in old town Scottsdale. The shaded background made it stand out.
This one was also growing in that same rose bed. The background on this one was not quite as shaded as the one above. I do love finding perfect rose buds.
These two were growing next to a home in east Phoenix. I couldn't resist capturing them with the yellow blooms of the Palo Verde trees as a backdrop.
