Wild Rose – Generation Incomplete

Generation Incomplete

     When I peered into the viewfinder I was thrilled to see various stages of wild rose flower development … but the process might be considered generation incomplete.  There were:  just above the open flower, an unopened rose bud; to the left, a flower bud that is unfurling; then nearly in the center, the open flower; and to the far right, the stamens and pistil after the flower had lost its petals.  The only thing absent was a rose hip.
