Pink Roses

Roses bring such beauty to our lives. I have probably always loved roses as they are just such beautiful flowers and their fragrance is so amazing. Learning to grow them and which ones grow better in which zones has been a learning experience for me.

Some are more shrub like, some are beautiful tea roses. I especially love the fragrant ones, that have a natural perfume that seems too intense to just come from nature alone. This photo gallery is one dedicated to the pink rose and its vary shades and tones.

Pink Roses share a special meaning and can show one's appreciation for another, and celebrate joyfulness. A little less "serious" than a red rose in meaning, but no less loving or beautiful, in my opinion.

I came across an interesting quote, "A profusion of pink roses bending ragged in the rain speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring." By William Carlos Williams

As we have seen roses often look even more beautiful after a rain with the raindrops on them still. I hope you enjoy this gallery of pink roses.

Photos of Pink Roses

Photo 1 - A close up of a pink rose, not completely opened yet. I think this color adds such brightness to a rose or flower garden. We used to grow some like these in California and cut them all the time and put them in vases. They make the best cut flowers, and it helps the rose bush so often as well to stay healthy.

Photo 2 - This is an example of a more of a shrub rose, not quite as fancy but just as bright as any other pink rose. These have taken some time to grow on me, but here in the Midwest, they come back again and again and give so much color throughout a lot of the year. So they are true winners in my book.

Photo 3 - This is more of a deep or hot pink rose with lots of petals making it look very full. Another lovely color of pink rose.

Photo 4 - This is like rose in photo number one in regards to its color, but it is more opened up and full looking. A perfect kind of rose, in my opinion.

Photo 5 - This is the outside of Missouri Botanical Garden's rose garden, or one of them anyway. Its a lovely garden filled with many roses. Its neat to see what grows in the Midwest, in that garden.

Photo 6 - I love how the center rose takes the stage in this photo, and how the other buds kind of frame and draw attention to the center rose. I love how that looks. The buds look almost red there, but they will lighten as you can see to a pretty pink.

Photos 7 & 9 - These two have some white also on the petals and are so pretty. The second one, number 9 almost has a fluorescence in the coloring on that rose's petals. I see it where the white meets the darker pink.

Photo 8 - A single pink rose, stands alone, beautifully.

Photo 10 - A bunch of pink roses growing together showing the different stages from bud to full bloom. I love all the stages of a rose bloom.

* One amazing thing about roses is that even after done blooming, they don't stop "giving", so to speak. You have heard of rose hips, well these happen to be a great source of vitamin C and many people are on to this. You can find rose hips as an ingredient to teas. One other neat thing to do with rose hips is to make a pretty potpourri with them and some fragrance oil. Such lovely things, roses are.

Exquisite photos of many different kinds of roses from the perfect to the everyday, yet each beautiful in its own way.

I personally prefer red roses for their scent but to look at like the ones that are two or even three toned on their petals.

As pretty as the pink rose can be to me they don't hold a candle to the multicoloured ones.

This was a great hub. Voted up and beautiful. :)

What a nice way to start my day! Your first photo of the beautiful rose! I grew many roses when I lived in Ga. but I find they are more of a challenge here in S. Fl. although there are some that do well. There's one called The KnockOut Rose that I grow in pots, I have a red and a pink. It blooms all the time! I have an old fashion tea rose in my yard that I've had for many years. It blooms year round, a beautiful red cluster. Wish I had saved the label.

Again, I vote you UP, etc. etc.

See you again soon....

SOLD!!! Pink is my favorite color, so I'm a sucker for this gorgeous Hub! What a lovely gallery! It would be a lot of fun to have a garden room with all of these framed on one wall.

Happyboomernurse, thank you. :)

Austinstar, I love yellow roses too, they are so happy!

Phoenixarizona, thanks for your comment, visit and opinions. Red roses I bet are the favorite over all for the population, but I could be wrong.

Mary, I hope to get some of those knock out roses for my yard this Spring. They are wonderful here too, and do great in a climate that can get so cold. Thanks for your comment.

Simone, yay we have a pink rose lover! I love pink roses too, very much! I think they are lovely. Aww, I like the idea of having these framed on one wall, how fun, in a garden room. Thanks for stopping by. :)
