My notion of the perfect floral photograph is one that gives you the urge to not only pick the flowers, but to savor the aroma, as well.
This collection of florals were taken primarily in three different rose gardens - Zilker Botanical Garden in Austin, TX; The International Rose Garden in Portland, OR; and Butchart Gardens in Victoria, B.C. In addition, I've included some landscapes from the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center and Muleshoe Bend in Austin, TX as well as some from Washington, D.C. - both of which you can also see in the travel galleries of this web site.
As in life, enjoy taking the time to smell the roses.
