Up in blue sky view of several blooms, a rosa hybrid named Day Breaker. After looking in the Electronic View Finder then moving the focus point via the Control Wheel, imagine David wearing knee pads, knees on ground, holding up high a 32 inch diffusion disk with his left hand to fully cover these otherwise in the sun flowers, while simultaneously eyeing any flower movement from the breeze to stop, and in his right hand within a foot of the tripod mounted camera, holding a to be actuated infrared shutter release transmitter, finger on its button. A slight breeze picks up that pushes the disk around tiring his left arm so he has to bring it back down to ground level before starting again for the ninth time.

Three days later on Tuesday May 11, 2021, a perpendicular view of 2 rosa hybrid blooms named Scentimental. A few other similar striped varieties are magenta and white.
Per FOSJRG:
Scentimental: Red blend Floribunda. You might think stripes are a new-fangled thing. But it is the old rose heritage that brings the genetic stripping to this spicy scented new-comer. Each petal is as unique as a snowflake–some more burgundy-splashed-white, some creamed-swirled-red-all on the same vigorous plant. The old-fashioned form & fragrance may remind you of its stingy blooming ancestors. Yet the nearly continuous number of blossoms lets you know there’s modern kinfolk in there, too. Distinctive clean quilted foliage. Red blend, stripes. Flowers striped burgundy and white, or cream, or red, opening quickly. Strong, damask, rose, spice fragrance. Average diameter 4.75 inches. Large, double (17-25 petals), cluster-flowered, in small clusters bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season. Pointed buds. Medium, compact, rounded. Large, semi-glossy, medium green, wavy or ruffled foliage. Height of 35 inches to 47 inches. Width of 31 inches to 43 inches. Hybridizer: Tom Carruth (United States, 1997).

Perpendicular view of rosa hybrid named Painted Porcelain. Some quite aesthetic shapes to most of this variety blooms but on long stems they readily bob about in slightest breezes.
Per FOSJRG:
Painted Porcelain: Hybrid Tea Subtle nuances abound in the hand-painted beauty of these blooms. The creamy white flowers are stippled and splashed with pink, an effect that strengthens so much with the heat of summer that they become almost solid pink. Presented one to a stem, in classic hybrid tea style, these flowers are destined for display in cut-flower arrangements of all shapes and sizes. Upright, bushy plants are quite vigorous and blooms prolifically through the season. Height: 3.5 feet – 5 feet Flower Size: 3.4inches – 5inches Moderate Fragrance Hybridizer: Bédard 2021.
