Dying roses

I went to a place called Lady Dixon park in Belfast to see their rose gardens. The roses all looked like they were on their way out and quite a few were actually infected or rotting, but I really quite like the patterns on the sick flowers. I'm a sucker for anything slightly decrepit.

This conjoined twin rose is a mutant flower but somehow romantic because it has two hearts. The one below it is infected but I think the spots are pretty.

I'm not really much of a fan of roses though, I go for something more exotic. (Just in case you were thinking of sending me a bouquet).
