coy rose

"When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy." --Rumi

 

This is one of my favorites in the rose garden at South Coast Botanic Garden, the variety named "Ole." Colors change as the flowers mature, but the young blossoms like this one have petals that are delicate orange on the outside and golden yellow inside and on the edges. This one seemed coy, hiding her center behind a display of outer petals. (Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/160 sec., ISO 400, overcast skies, handheld)
