No, these roses aren't from my garden; they are from Trader Joe's. I look forward to seeing their floral collection each week when I do my grocery shopping. Great prices and a nice selection, too.
For these photos, I wanted to play with my 50mm lens at its widest aperature of f1.8 because I love the beautiful bokeh (blur) backgrounds it creates.
Oh, and it helps to have a window that hasn't been cleaned recently!
