Ruby Tuesday/Today's Flower


"The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns;

the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the rose."

This is the reddest rose I have seen in a long time. Looking at the big photo, it doesn't look like you did much Photoshop work either, but I could be wrong. So maybe it's the camera? I wonder what type you are using. So red, so green! Lovely.

And thanks for visiting my blog! The campfire is too magenta but it's beyond my Photoshop skills to make it the right color. Sigh.

Sara...Thank you for commenting. I did no photo shopping on this picture. In fact I don't own photo shop! I am using a Kodak Easyshare 27590. It is just Mother Nature at her best!
