Rose sorbet

Two weeks ago I posted a golden rose which had shrugged off the early morning frost and bloomed beautifully by the afternoon.  Unfortunately the next frost was much heavier, and this little rosebud was stopped in its tracks.   However, it looked so pretty, dressed for winter, so I decided to conclude the series with this one.

I `m glad that so many of you seem to have enjoyed it these `chilly` shots.  (:o)

So many flavours.

If you snapped one off and stored it in the freezer, would it freeze-dry and keep forever?
Rosalyn Sears: Might do! I should have tried. Next year! (:o)

WOW Roasalyn, they ARE getting better and better, stunning capture smile
Rosalyn Sears: Astrid, I am replying from a very dull, wet and windy South of England. I can`t believe my luck with that sudden cold snap. I am so pleased you have enjoyed this series. (:o)
The last one but not the least Rosalyn. For me this is the best one of your beautyful series
Rosalyn Sears: Well I put this one in because it sort of closed the circle. I am so glad you like it. (:o)

Love the title Roz, but when I first saw your shot,I thought toffee apple(where the bud is attached to the stem).
This is just sheer delight and a beauty to end this wonderful

It really HAS been an extraordinary series, Roz. I've never seen anything quite like it!
Ooo more candied fruit - I have tried freezing flowers, but nature does a much better job. ;o)
Rosalyn Sears: Did it work? Did you get frost on them? I have an idea, no doubt not unique, of freezing flowers in ice and then photographing them. (:o)
Wow - brilliant closeup shot!
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Chris. You are very kind. (:o)

It looks so edible... loke ice cream. Very well captured. brilliant clarity.
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Gale - you have made some lovely comments throughout this series. (:o)
What a super series. I've often said that the title is an important part of an image on display; it enhances the overall presentation. And you've enhanced the hell out of these.

Wonderful work.
Rosalyn Sears: lol! Thank you for those very kind comments. Sometimes I really struggle to find the right title, but I do know what you mean, it can guide the viewer into your mind and the direction of your thoughts. (:o)
