Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. Also welcome to FEBRUARY!!!! My header picture this month is a photo I took of the fireplace in our home. The warmth of the fire helped us get through a VERY cold January. February is known as the Month of LOVE. SO I wish you love, joy, peace, happiness and lots of Laughter...

More of our 2009 Hybrid Tea Roses

This is the last group of this year's Hybrid Tea Roses in our yard. As I've mentioned several times in many posts, we have 48 different rose bushes in our yard this year --and out of the 48, there are 46 different varieties. In order to see more of our roses click HERE. They are scattered out in several different posts.

Today I will show you the last ten (plus one that I've showed before). Above is a new one for us this year, and it was the last rose to bloom. Its name is FREDERIC MISTRAL. Below are nine more.









And my favorite of this group, DREAM COME TRUE


George took this picture yesterday of another of our favorites (which I have featured before). This is DOUBLE DELIGHT and I just HAD to share it again with you since it can just take your breath away.


And finally, I just couldn't end today's post without showing you a picture of Gorgeous Daddy Bluebird --which I took yesterday when he was making the rounds to and from the feeder. He and his woman are feeding their four newborns. I figure the little guys will fledge about July 25.

Hope you have enjoyed seeing all of our roses, and of course the Bluebird.
I don't know which I love the most: the Roses or the birds.... Hmmmmmm.... hard decision!!!!
