Macro Flowers Saturday #14-White roses

Welcome to Macro Flowers Saturday!

Roses are the oldest flowers ever known to mankind, so old that
"When love first came to Earth, the Spring spread rose-beds to receive him."
~ Thomas Campbell
The rose has been a favorite flower of artists, writers and singers of all times, maybe because a rose can say so much without saying much at all. The soft looking, silky layers of rose petals evoke tenderness and remind us of the dazzling beauty of creation.
"Rose! Thou art the sweetest flower that ever drank the amber shower:
Even the Gods, who walk the sky, are amorous of thy scented sigh."
~ Thomas More

Well, my roses are not exactly white, as in the title, they have this cream center that I like so much.

A bunch of glowing white roses are a symbol of innocence and spiritual love that resides only in the soul.

Those are lovely photos Maia and that rose is so perfect with not a single blemish. I would have my nose in there trying to detect a scent. Have a lovely weekend. :) Rosie
