Photo taken, just now on my phone, for Jennifer’s One Word Photo Challenge: Carmine.
This is my standard rose tree – much more than a bush. There are two branches from earlier in the year, not yet trimmed, soaring skywards. New growth is sprouting. The leaves will turn green as they age.
Carmine is the general term for some deep red colors that are very slightly purplish but are generally slightly closer to red than the color crimson is.
