Vivid names, vivid roses

This week, the WordPress WeeklyPhoto Challenge is Vivid. I’m not sure these roses are the most vivid colours I have seen, but I found the names a cut above the ordinary. A vivid imagination could transport you through time and place.

Going clockwise from the left, the names are Fantin Latour, Rose Gaujard, Cardinal Richelieu….

  1. ‘Fantin Latour’. A name to conjure with Sue. I am thinking of a gay man in a Guy de Maupassant story, or a dancer at the Folies Bergere at the time of Lautrec.
    Nice roses too.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Sue, they’re beautiful. I have only two or three blooms lingering on one bush. They’ll be gone in the next southerly change.

      Well, may I say up front that these are not my roses! And despite the loving care they get, with all the wind and some rain that we have had recently, a lot of them are looking quite blown about.

  3. Vivid roses with beautiful names! Love the colours too.

  4. Superb names. So beautifully photographed too!

  5. Lovely Sue. Vivid indeed 🙂

  6. Lovely colours, Sue. Thanks for joining the challenge this week.

  7. They are so extraordinary especially the names. Would be interesting how the names originated. Guess, I will be researching the history of the names.

  8. I think these varieties have been around a long time, they are beautiful!

  9. Beautifully vivid and the color really pops on the dark backgrounds. Gorgeous!

  10. Fantin Latour is particularly lovely 🙂 What’s your favourite?

  11. I Found a lovely rose garden in the Broads this afternoon 🙂 (as well as all those boats!)

  12. Lovely roses Sue and interesting names. I chuckled when reading the 3 way conversation with you, BP and Jude… I think the most vivid one is the Rose Gaujard and it is the black background that makes it sing…

  13. The flowers are beautiful, and really beautifully composed. Well done.

Over to you...
