The water drops are exquisite. I admire painters who are able to portray water droplets on their subjects.

If this is any indication, Mr Brattcat's garden must be a complete delight to spend time. Beautiful image of such a soft and delicate flower, complemented by rain drops.

You might want to show us more of Mr. Brattcat's garden in the future - especially if this is a representative sample of his plantings!

Beautiful!

Re your comment on Florida Fotos: That idle truck is located on the grounds of the building that was used as the hospital in the movie, "Doc Hollywood," starring Michael J. Fox.

A case when old-fashioned is clearly classic! My compliments for the photo and for the rose itself.

Beautiful shot of the old fashioned rose Brattcat. wonder if Mr Brattcat is an old fashioned kind of guy? Looks so beautiful with the raindrops!

Pearls look so heavy on that old fashion wedding dress..So many time of embroidery for Mother Nature!

Mr.Batcat seems to be a man after my own heart, I too grow old roses. A rain-drenched white rose . . . seems to remind me of the old story of Beauty and the Beast.

A single water-laden rose bathed in droplets is an exquisite display of nature, sponsored by Mr. Brattcat and delivered by your lovely photo.

Refined. Sublime. Divine.

That is one waterlogged rose. You must have taken that after Irene came through.

Sharon said...

I'm loving those big water droplets!

Jack said...

It is wonderful. So, are there his and her gardens in brattville, or is Mr. Brattcat the sole gardener?

That is just so beautiful.

Brattcat, your profile doesn't include an email address, so you can delete this after reading. I was winding my tallcase (grandfather) clock today and saw the card for Ray Bates, The British Clockmaker, in Newfane, Vermont. I spent many enjoyable hours talking with Ray when last he renewed my clock. If you haven't been over there, you might grab your camera and take a ride. Ray is a craftsman of the type that is not going to be around forever. I googled his business and it appears he is still alive and working, but Ray is no spring chicken. You might get some fabulous pictures and even more, you might enjoy talking with such a skilled craftsman.

Must have been abundant rain, the flower is soaked up!
God bless you!

Enchanting. That is to say...the rose, the raindrops, the photograph, Mr. Brattcat's garden and of course Mr. Brattcat...

I find the leaves in this image fascinating, too, BC. They are different from the leaves of the more usual form of rose that we see everywhere here in Australia.
