2010 Roses--Part IV


As most of you know by now (since I've mentioned it MANY times--ha), we have 55 different varieties of Hybrid Tea and Grandiflora Roses in our yard. George is the "Rose Man"---and really knows how to grow beautiful Roses.

I've also talked about how blessed I am to get a fresh rose on our table inside most every single day. He always buys the fragrant Roses ---so you can imagine how nice our yard smells --AND our home.

This is my 4th post showing more of our Roses. To see the other 3 posts, go to the right sidebar on my blog, scroll down to LABELS, and click on ROSES 2010. Here are six more today, starting with APRICOT NECTAR pictured above.



SUNDANCE



BEWITCHED




JOHN F. KENNEDY




FRAGRANT CLOUD




GLOWING PEACE

An old Swedish proverb says: "If I had a ROSE for every time I thought of YOU, I'd be picking ROSES for a lifetime." Hope you will enjoy the weekend, and thanks again for your friendship. See you Monday morning!!!

Happy Father's Day to all of the Papa's!!!!

Hugs,

He grows some of the prettiest roses I have seen , they remind me of my grandma's roses in England.

Sundance caught my eye. George makes sure your life is full of flowers. Such a romantic.
Have a pleasant, pain free week end.

They are PERFECT! Not a bite taken out of any of them. How does he achieve it?

As lovely as they are, the petals, the colors, it's George's thoughtfulness of you to bring you a flower every morning...that puts me away!

They all are gorgeous but Sundance really caught my eye. I think yellow roses are my favorite. Scented roses are the best.

Simply Georgeous! :D

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Betsy, I think George's roses are all worthy of a pize...and so is his excellent photography!

The sweet perfume of a rose is one of natures finest odors. Enjoy them all while they are blooming.

Hi Betsy!

You are lucky to have a garden and a home filled with roses! Too beautiful!

Thank you for the update you sent! I will zip off an email soon :)

It is too hot outside anyway to do anything.

I miss having roses in my garden. I love their fragrance. As a child I once lived next to a nursery that had rows and rows of roses. I was quite young, about 7,but those blooms let a memorable impressions!I think i will get some that can be put in planters on our deck. We live in a rental. Our home has not been reconstructed since the fire.Your pictures out a smlie on my face. :)

Ginny said...

Sundance would be my favorite here! How about a post with Tearoses? Phil doesn't know how to tell the difference, I think I do. And I'm going to post some and ask George on the post if that's what they are.

Carol said...

Betsy your roses are gorgeous. Got any tips on how to grow them, and keep them, in this Tennessee clay soil?

imac said...

Judy said...

Oh wow, I love them all. I wish I had that many in my yard...I'll enjoy yours tho.

You have to enter one of these in my photo contest ASAP!!

I'd love to see your yard at the height of all the blooms. I KNOW it's a feast for the eyes and senses.

You and George have a wonderful weekend Betsy!

Mary said...

I never tire of your gorgeous roses!

Queen of Dreamsz said...

Hi Betsy,

That Glowing Peace rose is divine!!! But all of them are...be still my heart. I bet the petals on that Glowing Peace would dry very well.

Thanks for coming over to visit with me...I've been trying to get over here to tell you about the party but {sigh}..have been traveling through creative spaces all afternoon...over 450 bloggers are attending this year...last year we had 150 blogs.

In addition to all of the fun of visiting everyone's space....one of the major creative magazines is picking one of us for a feature in their magazine..I guess all of us creative souls secretly wish for that exposure. ♥

I just updated the post with more photos and information..don't know if you saw it yet? Come back because I'm adding more as I get it edited. It was too much to do in one sitting.

I told you I've been collecting for a long time..now you see why I held on to it over keeping things like furniture! haha

Hugs,
Stephanie

From the Kitchen said...

I can always get my rose "fix" here at "Joyful Reflections". Please thank George for me and wish him a happy father's day!

Best,
Bonnie

Cheryl said...

These photos are stunning. What a beautiful collection of roses, George certainly has a magic touch in the garden! The scent must fill the air. Hope you are feeling well. Have a great week ahead.

Pat Tillett said...

Wow!
So many beautiful colors. I'll bet your "pruning" muscles are highly developed...

Neal said...

Gorgeous....especially the ones with the drops of water on them!!

Shelley said...

How lovely, I can almost smell them from your photos. Sundance is my favorite, it reminds me of one my Mom had in her front yard. Hers always smelled so good.
