Most of our roses are average-sized bushes — three or four feet high. But we have one rose that likes to show off every couple of years and see how high it can grow.
Betsy got the picture of me (above) trying to capture the top blossom on our About Face rose. To put this image into proper perspective, I’m 6-feet, 4-inches tall, and I’m shooting up to shoot the rose.
The picture below is the photo I was shooting while Betsy was getting her picture of me. I rather like it, even if the flag in the background is blurry. The morning light was bowing through the petals of the rose when I got this picture.
