Beautiful!... a plethora of color...I don't know if they actually have scent but I feel like I can smell them!

Hmmm.. I believe that close-up of the pale pink one with the greenish-yellow center is the variety 'Swansdown,' don't you think? Outstanding!

Looks like dlyn has some catching up to do as well. I don't feel as bad now.
These photos are gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing. You are such a gardener. Kacey has a question on her blog about a plant this morning. It looks so familiar to me, but its name escapes me. I'm sure you'll know right away!

totally beautiful! wish i could make flowers like that, but i have the anti-green thumb. all my thumbs have to do is be within 10 feet of flowers and they die. stoooopid fingers.

What incredibly relaxing and beautiful pictures! There is even a bee in the last flower, such detail.

I have a brown thumb, and gardening actually makes me bleed most days. I am not very patient and I tend to just bend over and rip up weeds with my bare hands and either pull out my back, shred my fingers on some stray briar, or sweat to death due to bending over in the heat.

You have a gift - both with gardening and photography.

These are beautiful. My pool is surrounded by rhodies in every color. Just too bad the blooms don't last all summer.
