Fabulous Floribundas

These roses are both floribundas, the mauve ones are Perfumed Perfection and the cream and pink ones are Seduction. The Perfumed Perfection is very heavily and heavenly perfumed, whereas the Seduction is only lightly perfumed. I grow floribundas for the abundance of flowers they produce, and they look spectacular on the bush, which is why they are named floribundas--flora abundance!Quite a few of you asked me how I faded the photos in the last post, so I thought I would share it here so you could go and try it out yourself! It was actually very simple, I simply hit the HSL (hue saturation lightness) button on my photo edit programme which came with my camera, then it gave me the choice of those three things, I reduced only the saturation to the point I was happy with and saved it and that was all. It might take you a bit of exploring to find the same function on your photo-edit programme, but I'm pretty sure it should be there and it should be quite common. Have fun! Have a fantabulous week, my dear friends.

The photos look so retro and melancholic this way - I love it! :)

I just wanted to tell you that I showed your blog to my mom (she is crazy about gardening, flowers and interior decoration) and she told me whenever she needed a break from work she would visit your blog and just look at the beautiful pictures:) She even made me bookmark it so that she wouldn't loose it.

I hope you are having a lovely day! xo
