Yesterday I picked up my special order of black Baccara roses, thank you Wegmans, they are absolutely beautiful!
Black Baccara roses are also known as “Black roses”, they are more blackish in color before the blooms begins to open. As its bloom opens, the color changes to a deep rich shade of blueberry/blackberry and burgundy. This rose is as close to black as any, blooms have a velvety texture.
Today we had great weather, felt like summer including the bees whizzing by..so, I decided to take advantage and photograph the roses. I found them difficult to photograph, if they were in direct light and slightly far away from the camera they photographed quite dark almost completely black, so it took a little while to get a few good shots while I sweated under the hot sun. Tomorrow I want to give it another try, I have this cool lime green bowl with white polka dots and faux black fur, we’ll see!
