BBB's..Belated, birthday blooms.....!!

I think that everyone who knows me well, knows that a bunch of home grown roses is possibly the best pressy they could ever give me.. Roses grown in commercial conditions just don't cut it as far as perfume (there usually is non) and shape. So I was highly delighted when a friend called in yesterday with this gorgeous bunch hand picked from her own garden.. lucky, lucky moi !! I wanted to share them with you and only wish somehow you could smell the perfume....Hope you have a beautiful Sunday and btw did you notice my careful 'petal placement' in the top picture.....!! pps 35C in Perth today and we're still in Spring, not so thrilled.....!

  6. 35! Won't the flowers all wilt and die? We are nicely in the teens to a maximum of about 21 these days, one of the nicest times of the year.

  11. Thank you for the reminder. Julie returns in the afternoon from a little more than a week away in Nova Scotia. i think I should get some of the store-bought roses to put in a vase for her return.

  12. Radiant, romantic roses! I agree about commercial variety! They just do not have that zing of fresh roses!

  13. Il n'y a rien de plus beau qu'un tel bouquet cueilli dans son propre jardin! Je comprends ton bonheur, Gracie.

  15. Color effects or SOC ?
    I would love all pictures to be SOC but to get the "old" feeling, some touch-up would be necessary using software.

  19. I can smell a whiff (lol, I've just lit a rose candle!) they are gorgeous (and bravo for the alliteration!)

    (Note: I supported Wales and Australia, look where that got them, lol!)

  20. I am not an expert on roses but I am sure you are right...

  21. If we ever had a Spring day like that I would be...quite happy.

  22. I think I can smell them! Yikes! Fantastic. And they are...what super colors! Roses are my favorite flower.

    Re your comment on The Villages...most of the 80,000 residents have golf cars (they call them cars not carts!)...and there are paths throughout the community to ride them on. The one you see was, however, "street legal," which means it can be driven on public streets also.

    Lois Anne and I have a little blue cart! We take it for a spin around Stone Creek just about every night and I use it for playing golf!

    Hope you have a great week!
