Favorite Roses

Love Song

Sugar Moon!

We've planted 4 rose bushes this week
and there are several others that I've had to
resist thus far but if I can figure out where
to put more ... my choices are from these:

Easy Does It, Livin Easy, or Colorific
{all three if I had space}
Girls Night Out
Love's Magic
Over the Moon

In our various moves over the years,
leaving my flowers,
planted so small and then flourishing as
mature plants, has been harder to leave than the house.

We have a smaller yard than ever before
but it's amazing how many flowers one can fit.

What are your favorite roses?

We just came back from going to get the OTHER DINING ROOM CHAIR! And off we go again to try to enjoy a day out. But here you are, with a new post and a kind comment upon your visit to my new post!

Look at these varieties; you are having a BLAST and I wish I was there with you. I also wish we would get some sunshine and warmth; Iwent out today with my winter jacket, I'm not kidding! But your images here are making me hopeful that soon, I will be in shorts. I LOVE THAT SUGAR MOON! Do they all have a distinct scent, or all they all the same sweet, raspberry-like smell?

Be Still My Heart. Oh, your roses are beautiful. I don't know which ones I like the best, as they are all so unique in their own way.

I can't wait to get the painting and see what you have created.

Red roses are my favorite, but I truly enjoy them all. Your lens has captured much beauty in your garden roses, and that's what I love to see.

My print came today in the mail, and I TRULY LOVE IT! The colors are very pretty, and the thickness of it makes it more special. I was looking at the faces of the sisters and smiled because they reminded me so much of my daughters. They are so different from eachother, but still the same in many ways.

I appreciate this gift so much, and will keep it forever. Also, the tag was so pretty. I collect tags, and this will be added to my collection.

My yard has too much grass and I've been digging it out since we moved here! There is always room for more flowers in my opinion. Yours are beautiful.♥♫

Beautiful Roses you have. Mr. C has planted several and now has an entire section of them. We really like the old heirloom varieties with the true essence of rose scent. I do not know their actual names. Enjoying fresh roses every day is pure bliss...
