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.
