Awesome Autumn

Hi, everybody, I hope you are all doing well. I know I've been missing in action from here for quite some time, life just gets so busy especially during the two-week school holidays. I'm thrilled to be back. During the term break we went away for a few days, we went to see these beauties. I must say it was very invigorating. Gorgeous coastal gorges and rocks that resemble chocolate and vanilla swirl cake (or marble cake). We're truly blessed here with these lovely clean natural beauties. The shadow of my legs on the rocks. Apart from gorges and rocks we also visited these lovelies, the ones which talked would also bite if you put your fingers through the cage, even though they showed themselves oh-so-friendly. Just like roses with thorns? Haha! The colours of their feathers are just so amazing, God's creativity is awesome. Talking about roses with thorns, this is a good time for them in my garden. I get so many flowers in sizes that are generally larger than what they would be any other seasons. And while you're here, I thought I'd show you some of the photos. Let me introduce them to you one by one out of that heap. Here are Jude the Obscure. These are Abraham Darby. They are both English Roses (David Austin Roses with very strong perfumes) These are Perfumed Perfection. China Doll. These two are both Floribundas. These are St. Cecilia. Jubilee Celebration, and The Dark Lady. All three are English Roses as well. Now these pink and cream beauties are Pierre de Ronsard, which is also known as Eden Rose. It's a climbing rose. And last but not least these are shy Anne Boelyn, not totally open. Now put them all together, ta da! Can you tell I like fiddling with roses just a bit? Not only that, I also like fiddling with their pictures. I like them in that "washed out" appearance so much that I left some of them in that mode just for fun. I hope you'll enjoy them just as much as I did playing with them. Have a great weekend, folks. Till next time.

Again lots of beauty! I can't wait for my roses to bloom although they are never as beautiful or as plentiful as yours.

Hola, all your roses are pure beauty, and your pictures are so pretty too. I thought you live in Australia, don´t you?? And if it is then you are in autumn now, as well as we here in Chile, but here in my garden my roses aren`t doing as well as yours... so many lovely bunches you have picked!!
Loved to know there a rose called St. Cecilia... like my name.
Muchos cariños,
Maria Cecilia

You are so blessed with such great yielding rose bushes! They are lovely and you know what to do with them. Great to capture them in photographs; thus making them immortal...
