Red Roses

All over my neighborhood, the roses are blooming. I am especially fond of the older, somewhat neglected ones that have survived draped for years and years across the same fences. There is a campaign to get rid of the old chain link fences. Many of them are in a sad state of disrepair. But I do love the roundness of these roses in contrast with the grid of the fence. While the roses are in their brief, glorious bloom, the peeling paint and rust of the fence adds a nice textural contrast.
