Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. My Header Picture of the RHODODENDRON blossoms blooming in our yard during May a few years ago, gives me HOPE in this month of MAY. That hope (during these hard times for all of us) is that the flowers will continue to bloom ---and bring us the HOPE for an awesome future!

Raindrops on the ROSES

Those of you on Facebook know that we have been enjoying our Hybrid Tea and Grandiflora Roses recently... Once they started blooming,  LOTS of them bloomed. And the first blooms in spring are some of the best we see all season.   SO EXCITING!!!!

Yesterday morning,  we woke up to some rain.... After the rain stopped,  we went outside and did what we do everyday:  we took more pictures!!!!   Today ---I want you to get another cup of coffee and just sit back and relax...  Here are 12 photos I took yesterday morning in our yard.  Please enlarge them for a better look!

This is just a small number of our roses.... Can you see how blessed I am to get to see these in person????  AND---George brings one (or more) inside for me to enjoy every day....   I love roses with raindrops on them ---so I hope you enjoyed these photos as much as I enjoyed bringing them to you.

Have a wonderful day!
