The Delicate Beauty of Roses!

Hello everyone,
    It was a perfect summer day here today and another one coming tomorrow. I have been enjoying taking some photos of the beauty all around me lately so I have lots to share with you.We don't have any garden tours for awhile so we can be a little more lack- a- daisy about it for a week or two-so now I will bombard you with more posts!

Oh! a peony slipped into my rose post-sadly the peonies are pretty much past now so I am happy to have the roses to enjoy now.








I am happy that you stopped by so I could share the delicate beauty of a few of my roses with you.

Tomorrow we are off to the beach with a couple of our grandsons-oh, the joys of summer!!!

I hope you have a lovely day too!

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn,
They are all so so pretty! As is your photgraphy, It is always a pleasure to visit, and your kind words mean a lot to me:-)
This is the third year for the Eden roses, first year nothing much, last year was so wet, this year we have had very little heat (we have hit 80 once and lots of days we aren't making 70...) but they are thrilled!! I haven't done anything special. I bought mine because I loved Cindy's (My Romantic Home) hers in Northeren California look amazing...
Enjoy your sunshine!
Hugs,
Bella

Carolyn, what gorgeous blooms, and only your photography excellence makes them so beautiful for us! What a lovely pairing, like sister, so different yet so alike! Both beautiful in their own way!
Have a blessed day!

Hi Carolyn, thanks for visiting me. Yes, I have been to Crocker Hill Farm a few times. It was a beautiful spot wasn't it? I still have a copy of the Country Living magazine - May 1991 - with their farm house article! I'm going to go re-read this magazine now. Enjoy the beautiful day. Pamela

Hi Carolyn,

Thank you for your warm welcoming words on my blog. How pretty your garden is looking at the moment! I always enjoy the time when most of the roses are in bloom.

Your granddaughters look very sweet in one of your other posts. Hope your mum is ok?

Lieve groet, Madelief

Cindy said...

So delicate and pretty! I love the peonies and roses. Funny but there are not a lot of roses growing in gardens here in Winnipeg, I wonder why. I was at Millie's house (Wreathmaker) on Monday and she has some lovely roses.
Hugs, Cindy

The pale pink rose is absolutely beautiful - such a wonderfully delicate colour. Have fun at the beach.

I love roses from the tiny bud to the open rose and then to the faded flower. There is beauty in all life stages of a rose.

Beautiful post Carolyne.

Blessings
