2010 Roses---Continued

Last week I posted 6 of our Roses (click
HERE) out of the 55 different varieties in our yard. Today, I'm featuring six more for you to enjoy. Above is another of my all-time favorites, VETERANS HONOR. I love large red roses that have a fabulous fragrance---and this is one of the best!!!! Below are more!


SWEET FREEDOM (white roses are so special)

GEMINI (a fabulous picture, me thinks!!!!)

ABOUT FACE (another of my fav's, which is dark on the outside of the petals and light on the inside)

MEMORIAL DAY----Isn't this a perfect name for a Rose that blooms on or around Memorial Day each year?????

Hope you have enjoyed seeing more of our Roses. AND--I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend. I will again take the weekend off from blogging --and won't blog again until Tuesday morning. Did you know that Memorial Day used to be called Decoration Day? People would decorate all the graves at the cemeteries to remember those servicemen and women who had died for our freedom. My mother was a member of the DAR--and she was always in charge of decorating some of those special graves at our local cemetery in VA.

Thanks so much to those of you who have continued to come regularly to my blog even when my visiting to your blog has been sporadic this week. That means SO much to me. My knee is NO better and I had my MRI yesterday. I won't know the results until next Tuesday or Wednesday--but I have a feeling that surgery will be necessary. I am still on some heavy-duty medication. Thanks again... Have a wonderful weekend.
