Rose Mania


NEWS!! Two First Prizes and other honors went to eight of my rose photographs at the American Rose Society's National convention this fall!! It was thrilling. You can find two of my rose photos on the 2013 ARS calendar!!
Last year from hundreds of entries, my rose photo was honored in a national photography contest from the American Rose Society with an Honorable Mention. This is the #1 rose journal in America!!

A meaningful Easter gift for rose lovers & yourself!: "ROSES IN PORTRAITURE" has many different roses in much higher resolution than shown here. Click on the cover image to buy at a new, lower price.
