One Rose......Twelve Looks!

                                                           Happy Pink Saturday!

                           I went out to the garden today to see what pink beauty I could find.
                                            And this is what I came up with.
                 The Mary Rose is getting some new blooms.

                            The Mary Rose is a pretty hardy English Rose from David Austen.
Well, once again you probably didn't know you could have so much fun with a rose or two!

Thank you for all your nice comments on my last post and once again welcome to my new followers and to you 'old' followers thanks for staying with me.

I am joining How Sweet the Sound today for Pink Saturday and The Rose Garden in Malevik for Show Off Saturday.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Hi Carolyn,

These photos are just GORGEOUS!! Pink is my very favorite color for roses. We have the David Austin rose "Gertrude Jeckyll." It really is lovely, and the fragrance is amazing.

Visiting from Pink Saturday; have a wonderful weekend.

I wish Mary Rose would come and live at my house. I guess you don't have deer who love to eat my roses just when they are about to open.
Once again, such beauty in every photo.
Thank you, Ruthie from:

That reminds me of the rose bush I had when I was growning up. What is that line of roses my dear?

When these bloomed by the door, it smelled of slight pepper and my sister and I would pick the flowers and pretend it's that were going to have a wedding and we were the flower girls.

There were rose petals strewn everywhere during those weeks. I loved it. Mom didn't.. but who cared. (not us of course)

I so miss that bush. So do tell they line of roses please.

warm hugs

It's such a treat catching up with you on a Sunday morning! Mary Rose is one of the most gorgeous roses in the world! And you have shown it off so beautifully. That first shot is my favorite.

Madelief said...

What a beautiful rose the Mary rose is! It is such a lovely shade of pink. In my garden the Heritage and Rhapsody in blue are in bloom once again. It's a joy to look at.

I haven been thinking of your mother and Lucas lately. Hope they are both well?

Have a lovely Sunday!
