One Word Photo Challenge: Carmine

new growth on rose bush

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.

From Wikipedia:
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.

I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.
