There is a rather tall rosebush at our front door displaying the most stunning and fragrant pink and white blooms. It’s a prolific producer and now that I have a garden with 14 rose bushes I better learn how to take care of them! Any advice on rose care would be greatly appreciated.

I was really touched today by the comments and responses of a fellow blogger to my posts on roses. Seldom have I received such a heartfelt and warm response to my photographs and it was clearly from someone who is equally enraptured by the beauty of roses. Since my garden is alive with them at the moment I picked a few and put them in a vase just for her! So these are for you Lady Amy ! I am sure you will enjoy visiting her lovely blog Petals Unfolding ~ The Embrace of Love~ too.

After the stormy weather this week I was very pleased to see that the roses coped. You can see why raindrops on roses are a few of my favourite things!

I get so excited when I see buds and can’t wait for the flower to fully reveal itself. I have been watching the rosebushes closely and now the first one is in full bloom.

Missed my flowers and since people seem to be getting in the mood for Valentine’s Day I decided to go with some pink carnations.

The lovely warm orange hues of these roses brightened my day when it was grey and gloomy outside.
