Picture within a Picture : The Rose Outside My Window





This rose opened on May 22nd right outside my window and unlike most of the buds, it opened turned towards the window...however because my window needs, shall we say, a little attention I went out the door and popped my picture outside.

Tonight, two days later, the rose showed the first signs of fading and I realized how much I will miss it...right there peeking in my window, so I opened the adjacent window and in the rays of the setting sun took another little shot of it.  Yes, it smells wonderful too.  Opening the window attracted little Phoebe and she and I both admired a new  bud on its way...

And then...


 Looking at the pictures I had taken on my computer screen - yes my computer is also right at the window- I couldn't resist a picture within a picture and then once more again...  And I still haven't cleaned the windows....ah art...what you might lead to in the morning.

That's it...Good night!

The Droste Effect! I've always enjoyed that.

Lovely rose. What a special gift to have placed in the window, just for you. :) Thank you for sharing her with us. Now I will miss her too!

I wonder why your rose turned towards the window instead of the sun? Love that shot of the pictures within a picture, kind of like mirrors or paintings (just went to the PG Art Center yesterday and the featured artist liked to paint his studio filled with his paintings also shown in the show)... but you have the tech edge.

I love all the loving attention you are giving this rose, appreciating God's gift to the max. It certainly is a beauty!

Right now I am ignoring both my dirty windows and my really dirty mini-blinds ... but that rose. Oh my.

Fondly,
Glenda

Hello Jeannette!
It's been awhile since I've been over here. Or anywhere for that matter!
Good to see your lovely photos and blog again. =]
Our roses have not started yet, but the lilacs are too scrumptious for words! I love spring! That rose is so spectacular! What a beautiful gift it is!
Have a lovely day!

Hi Jeanette, Thanks for dropping by my site and leaving a comment. I figured I'd click through and see what you have. Oh! What a nice place you have here. I love the California coast between Big Sur and Fort Bragg. If I had the resources I would buy a farm there.
But since that ain't gonna happen I'll just drop by here and see what beautiful things you have to share.
