Blood Red Roses by Xerces Blood Red Roses by Xerces
This is a photo of a beautiful flower arrangement I saw back in August at the Shrewsbury Show. I loved it so much I had to get a picture of it.
Please be aware, I did not arrange these flowers!

you ever been to the shrewsbury show? it's not an RHS show, but it's still a great show- i'm off to it this time next week, in fact. will be taking my macro lens this year =D
very glad you like it

Yea it's great! And the fireworks are usually fabulous. :aww: I'm theoretically in Egypt next week, so probably won't be attending. But it'd be nice to go again. *Dies* A macro lens? I want one so badly but it'll never happen unless I buy it myself. :D

aww- i've never been able to stay for the fireworks! always gotta get the train home and miss them ¬_¬
plus i'll be headed straight for my boyfriends on the train after the show this time. have a good time in egypt =D
and yeah- macro lenses are pretty pricey. mine cost about £300.. so more than half the cost of my camera!

You should try and stay for them one time, they're super!
Have a nice time at your boyfriend's. I'll try not to die from the heat in Egypt. =P
Ouch. I think mine would cost around the same, and probably end up costing slightly more than my camera. >.< Not great on your savings.

yeah i know the feeling. Almost all of the flowers in my gallery are my mom's plantings. But when I buy her flowers at the grocery store near her apartment, I normally pull the best roses from all of the bouquets and make my own. Shhh... ;)

well, it was the middle of summer and this was a pre-arranged display, so i couldn't have done much to change it. would be nice to have some snow too.
