Roses in our Yard- June 2013

Last week,  I showed you 12 of our blooming Hybrid Tea and Grandiflora Roses in our yard--after a rain... If you missed that post,  click HERE.   Today I will show you 12 more  of our 57 different varieties in our yard.

We have had alot of rain this spring and it was a cool spring --making things bloom late.  BUT--once the roses started blooming,   many of them bloomed.   Hope you enjoy seeing the next 12 in our collection.  You need to click on them to see enlargements.

Hope you enjoyed seeing more of our beautiful roses.  As I've said many times,  I enjoy the roses probably more than any of our flowers.  This is George's baby --since he is truly the 'father' of these beauties.  He brings a rose inside and puts it in a vase almost every day --just for me.  LOVE IT!!!!   AND--I enjoy walking the yard twice a day to check out the new blooms..  It's also nice to sit on the bench and just smell the roses and gaze at them... Life is good on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee.

Have a wonderful Monday.

I stopped by today and did an "About Face" when I saw "Ingrid Bergman." I tell you it was "Sheer Magic" and I felt as if I was walking on a "Fragrant Cloud" experiencing "Pink Peace" that continued to cause my "Glowing Peace" after seeing this beautiful star. I offered her a cup of "Lemon Spice" tea, and drinking tea with her was a "Double Delight." Soon "Gemini" appeared, and she left with words of "Love and Peace." I am left to sing her praises "A Cappella."

Thanks to my friend, Sally,  for posting this wonderful comment on my blog today.  I loved it --so I wanted to share it with everyone.  Check out Sally's blog HERE.  Thanks, Sally.... I LOVED it!!!!
