Wow they are gorgeous! Now I can't wait for Spring to come here and it's not even winter yet! I bought an "Eden" rose last year and it only had a few blooms last summer so I can't wait to see it in full bloom!

I added your blog to my favorites so I can come back often!

Rosy...I want to be there in person to stroll through your rose garden...to take in all of the vivid colors and fragrance.

However, since I can't be there in person...this was wonderful!

Just beautiful. I'm writing the names down and hope I can grown a few of these in my backyard.

Oh Rosy, your roses are so beautiful! How wonderful to be able to come and stroll through your garden when the trees are bare and all the leaves are on the ground here in Canada. Thank you for treating us once again.

Blessings,
Sandi

I always love the stroll in your rose garden, I would love to have one plant that is full as yours! I know I do not have to tell you how much your roses make me smile! What a view to look at.

Hi Rosy,

If you feel old, then I must be tagging behind right after you! Hehe!!

I have also gotten the DA's US catalogs for the last two years. They are always a delight to flip through...

I know exactly what you meant about being busy. This past two weeks had been extremely hectic. I am enjoying some downtime now that the pressing deadlines are over. I am enjoying cleaning the house, and doing some re-organization.

Have a great weekend!

Your garden looks W O N D E R F U L!

That photo of Anne B. looks really nice! Only if you have the time, perhaps you may like to do a review on some of your roses? It's so hard to choose the best Austin rose, they all look so beautiful!

I see you have Jude the Obscure, isnt it lovely? Does yours have a kind of pineapply scent? Mine does!

Pink Slippers said...

I thought I knew which roses were my favorites but now--I have lots more. Can't wait to plant some bare-root roses.

Miss Jean said...

What do you do to make your roses so beautiful? Any secrets? They are absolutely divine. I think if I walked into your yard I'd just pass out from the sheer beauty of it all. So wonderful!!!!!

I wish you many hours in your beautiful roses paradise.

What a breathtaking garden! How very good of you to share it! I found your blog through a comment you left on the Dresden Plate blog, and I'm so glad I stopped by! I will be visiting you again soon! Have a blessed week!

How totally beautiful. It was just so peaceful and resting to come and see all your gorgeous roses (my favorite flower!). Of course, all my roses are dormant for winter, so how lovely to see your gorgeous ones! Mine never look as beautiful as yours, though!

Thank you for sharing all your beauty with us.

God bless you ~ Julie

What a lovely way to spend the evening! I have a dozen rose bushes, and now I want to put in many more! Thank you for the pleasant "stroll"!

Your garden is beautiful. Still waiting on my Roses to fill out & mature. Gives me hope to someday have many to fill my vases when I see yours. Debbie
