This book contains photographic captures of various beautiful blooms on flowering plans and shrubs. These beautiful and colorful blooms are truly gifts to us from our Father In Heaven. I call these gifts "Bloom Smiles" as they bring a smile to my face that then moves my soul. A moment or two spent going through this wonderful book will surely bring a sense of delight to your soul.
I am a hobbyist photographer and love to take shots of the roses and flowers my wife and I grow. Also like to go on photo shoots to some other gardens and to the mountains. The books I have published here of photos of my roses and other flowers are some of my award winning and first place winning shots. The book on growing roses I have published here is all from personal experience of growing and tending rosebushes for over 40 years. Some of my accomplishments in Photography are: I have won many first place ribbons in photography shows and contests over the years with my photography of roses and flowers. My photography work has won Best Overall Photo of Show several times now. My Photography work won the District Photography Trophy twice now from the Rocky Mountain District of the American Rose Society District Shows. A special award recognizing photographic excellence. I have won awards from the American Rose Society Photo Contest as well.
