Bed of Roses

David Austin Roses by Georgianna Lane

Hello, friends! Last summer I had the opportunity to photograph an abundance of David Austin roses for my upcoming book. Now that it’s off to the printer (to be released in September), I thought I’d share some of the images from the “cutting room floor” to get us all in a summery mood.

And finally, for more rose-y goodness, pick up the Summer Edition of Garden Design Magazine. I’m very excited and honored to have a number of my photographs, including the opening spread above, appear in a specially-commissioned article on David Austin Roses. The article is fabulous, with new portraits of Mr. Austin himself, photographed by Richard Bloom. It’s a thrill to have my photos appear alongside those of Mr. Bloom and Clive Nichols, two of the UK’s top flower photographers, whose work has inspired me for many years.

Wishing you a beautiful summer!

  • Georgianna! I just delight in your opportunities and in your work! Being featured in an article alongside those two amazing photographers? Woah!!! :D Having an opportunity to bring a book to fruition – to FOCUS on roses so intensely? So much hard work and so much skill and I hope you feel like you’re flying! ? That’s the photographer side of me responding.

    The plain ol’ Katy girl’s response is, I swear I could smell those roses for a moment!! (and it’s not wafting in from my window because I’m on the wrong side of the house for that. ;) ) These are GLORIOUS!! ??? xxoo
