Blooming marvellous.....!!

Yesterday I finally got around to pruning the last of my roses, and as late as it is in the season, I was very happy to get one last vase of flowers from my favorite bush to cheer up the patio.  Here's wishing you a 'bunch of blossoms' kind of Monday....!!.

  18. Lovely roses.

    We have so many rose bushes here in the old country growing wild, that I help my to petals from time to time, but mostly let them be and enjoy their scent and beauty.

  24. Grace, My husband has been lurking on your blog [we are trying to immigrate to Perth] and he sent me a link. He's not a commenter, but I had to introduce myself:) I am a Francophile, too. My FrenchKissed blog is centered around antique French postcards/digita scans and my love of France. Hope you'll visit sometime. If we get to fill our dream of relocating, maybe we'll meet in person one day. ...LUV the roses!
