Flower of the Day – January 7, 2018 -Chameleon Rose?

I started this year off with a rose – let’s finish the first week with another!

This is actually the same bush but a fresh branch shoot as January 1 and 2’s pics.

I think i’m going to name these the Chameleon Rose as they change their colour from red bud, through orange as they open, to this pale pink in their youth, on to apricot in maturity and then to yellow and white as they near their end. 🙂

Cee’s Flower of the Day – January 7, 2018 – Zinnia Bud




  1. I just love that I can click on your photo and open it bigger to see its beauty. Do you have a special setting on WordPress to do that? Also, thank you for describing how the roses change color. I need to get a rose for my garden!!

    • Meant to say earlier… I love Roses, they are such magnificent, if sometimes dangerous, plants and can have delightful scents! ( Sadly this Apricot/pink/yellow etc. flower has a pretty poor one but i have others that make up for it – my blue rose in particular! 🙂 )

      A good nursery will have something to suit and will gladly give good advice on it’s care I’m sure!

      Good Luck.

      P.S. I used to use the blogname ‘love’ to match my blog but the name is Bob – as in ‘uncle’. 🙂
      or LWBUT will do also.


  2. Your quite welcome Carol. 🙂

    I just have the standard free WP blog. It just needs a little HTML code added into the post!

    When you insert an image into your post it generally looks something like this: (when you choose the HTML tag near the top of your editing page).

    img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-13747″ src=”https://lovewillbringustogether.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/lovewillbringustogether_bowervine87a.jpg” alt=”lovewillbringustogether_bower vine 87a” width=”2601″ height=”1976″

    but with your blogname before ‘.files.’ and your photo file name. (the bit before .jpg)

    to get the pic to open in a new window you can magnify, cut and paste this code before the ‘<img class' line:
    a href=”https://lovewillbringustogether.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/lovewillbringustogether_bowervine87a.jpg” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener nofollow”

    and at the end after the height.

    Then replace my blogname with yours (after the https://) and your picture file name in front of the .jpg
    and Bob’s your uncle ! 🙂


  3. Thanks for your directions; I was not able to get it. . The html is this:

    Can you tell me how I would change it so that a person can click on the image and make it bigger?

    Thanks a lot, I have been wanting to do this for a long time.

    • Hi Carol, am happy to help.

      Your comment has had the code blanked out because it is trying to do the code instead of just displaying what was written!

      Try sending again but remove the first < sign you see in the text – this will give me the code but won't activate it in your comment. 🙂

      It is very likely only a tiny mistake in entering the filename or address that makes it not work… i have had to find out the hard way! 😉


      • Here is the HTML from a photo I want to post in a blog.

        img src=”https://snailsearch.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/img_0763.jpg” alt=”IMG_0763″ width=”3024″ height=”4032″ class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-3052″/>

        There is a >sign at the end. Should I take that one off too? Maybe this would be easier with email.


  4. Thanks Carol, I got it this time! 🙂

    So… to have the pic open in a new page and be able to show full details:
    In the post you want the pic put it into visual mode by clicking the ‘visual’ tab at the top and place the cursor where you want the pic to appear and add media as normal. When you have the right pic in the tight place go to ‘html’ mode (click the tab), scroll down to the start of your pic image code with the cursor just before the < you cut off for the comment and click and paste this code ( with a

    Then at the end of the image code you just need to add the ‘close’ to the “a href” by typing: /a> with another .

    It should be that easy! 🙂 Test it by doing a ‘preview’ and see if a new window opens with a magnify glass cursor – it should! 🙂

    Good luck, let me know how you go!
