To All Rose Lovers

Ok, folks, here we go, this is to all of you who love roses, especially David Austin's English Roses. First I brought the roses in from the garden, I laid them out on the kitchen bench, sometimes they are just so gorgeous that I have to get my camera out before I do anything else with them, and this was one of those times. I think they're oozing with a certain beauty simply stacked on top of one another............ Take a closer look............ I even took them to our bedroom for a bit of a photo session. I especially like the pink ones. (Radio Times is their name) First up, on my dressing table.......... I finally changed the pictures in those mini picture frames to coffee-stained papers with numbers on them, love love love....... Also, on my bedside table........... Their colour and the formation of their many petals (which make them look like old roses) are simply superb. Then, finally, I put them in vases as they were extremely thirsty by then. With a cup of tea, I sat down and inhaled, ahhhhhh! The fragrances from the roses were "killing" me. One day, you might be able to smell them through your computer, maybe one day............... For now, you will have to just enjoy their good looks. Enjoy the rest of your week. Ciao.

Wow those are lovely. You put them through quite the workout didn't you for their photo shoot? But, they looki like they survived it just fine and are resting comfortably. Enjoy them for all of us.

Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful photos! They were the perfect thing to lift my spirits, since it has been cold, gloomy and wet where I live lately. Do I love roses? I think so, my 6 month old baby girl's middle name is Rose :).
