Cl. Cecile Brunner PH 6-6-12
A Climbing Cecile Brunner polyantha rose bud, seen in a neighbor of my parents yard in the Parkside district of San Francisco, CA. Taken by a Nikon D40x at ISO 400 with a Nikon 18-55mm VR kit lens. (at 55) This bud is about 1.5 inches (~35mm) from the stem to the tip...
Sadly, this may be my last shot of a rose from this bush, which was ripped out (in August) by the new owner of the yard - sigh, the bush was at least 45 years old!
(update 5/2013) The bush came back!
