They came in all colors...red, pink, white, orange (?)
We couldn't get as close to the roses as we wanted to - I had to zoom in as far as my camera would let me in order to get the above pictures. We were separated from the flowers by a stretch of tilled ground...
and by an irrigation trough.
This is the head of the irrigation trough - a supersized faucet that spills the water into the trough where it somehow manages to keep the fields watered. I have no knowledge of how the water gets from the trough to the flowers. This irrigation system is nothing like anything I've seen in Alberta, which relies heavily on irrigation for it's wheat and corn crops. There's more than one system I guess. Anyway, this one looked cool.
Hope you all have a good weekend.
