Sundance Rose (taken on 9/2/14)
Several of you have talked about how much you like  Rose BUDS----so I decided to give you a blog post showing JUST some of our beautiful roses in BUD-form.  Our Roses are GONE until May ---so I'll just have to enjoy all of our photos during the winter... Hope you enjoy more of our Roses.  Be sure to click on them for enlargements.

Milestone Rose  (9/2/14)



Tahitian Sunset Rose (9/2/14)



Double Delight Rose (9/3/14)



Acapella Roses (Twins)  9/3/14

Apricot Nectar Rose (9/16/14)



Soft Whisper Rose (9/27/14)



Peace Rose (9/29/14)
I could show you MANY more from different months since these were all from my September Rose Folder.  Aren't they gorgeous?  Do you have a favorite?  My two fav's from this group are Soft Whisper and Ronald Reagan.  But there are several others which I love.

My prayer request today is for ME.  I have done something to my left knee (the same one I had Meniscus Surgery on in 2010).  It hurts like CRAZY.... I can barely walk. Am going to the doctor today..  Please say a prayer or send some happy thoughts to me please!!!!!

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving Week...  Take some time to hug those you love and keep an ongoing list of all of your blessings.  We ALL have so many,  don't we?

God Bless All of you.
Hugs,

HI Betsy So sorry to hear about your knee. I do hope the doctor can give you some pain relief and that it is nothing to . Now the Rose buds are all lovely and remember George has shown us many of them in full bloom. I also remember that I like the Ronald Regan one and it is also lovely in bud. Hope all goes well at the doctors. let us know what happens.

Rose ~ from Oz said...

Oh Betsy! done! prayers, positive thoughts, whatever it takes dear girl.
Can't have you down for long, there's waterfalls waiting out there!
Even before I read what you said, Soft Whisper was my choice and making choices in your garden is very difficult indeed!

What a joy to wake up and see those beautiful rose buds. I will certainly be thinking of you this week and praying that it is nothing too serious.

Linda P. said...

Some pretty rosebuds and my favourite is Pink Promise. So sorry to hear of your painful knee and will lift you up in prayer for relief from the pain and for healing.

You two have such a beautiful and wonderful collection of roses. They must be such a joy to see when in bloom and so exciting to watch for each year.

Picked the very last of my rose buds today. We have had two freezes but they were still hanging on. Too early to prune them back. Will wait until cold dreary February.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Lovely blooms. I am sending positive thoughts and prayers for your knee. Have a Happy Monday :)

Beth said...

My favorite of these is the Perfect Moment then Ronald Reagan then Summer Surprise. But they're all gorgeous!

I will lift you up in prayer--and your knee. I go tomorrow to the doc for a cortisone shot in my left shoulder---that dern arthritis!

I will think of you, we are not the type to be grounded. I have Voltaren Gel that is a prescription NSAID that helps some times, and a brace. I had two surgeries on my right knee. I agree with the Ronald Reagan, I had one at the cabin.MMMMM ahhhhh when one smells these lovelies. Have a nice holiday, I am still rounding up food for our pantry.

Jeevan said...

Absolutely loved the roses! Each exhibits an elegant beauty of their own... very sorry for your painful knee Betsy. This reminds me my fracture i went through last year and it was terrific and being close to knee each move gets hurt. Hope you get relief soon, and pls take care

Beatriz said...

George said...

These photos are all gorgeous. You did a great job of capturing the beauty of our September roses. It's just too bad that we have to wait until Spring to enjoy them again.

I hope the doctor will be able to help this morning.

Rita said...

Betsy,

I receive so much joy from your blog and pictures. I will be praying for you and pray the doctor has an easy fix for your knee. Hugs....Rita

Linda Kay said...

Sorry to hear about your knee. I think I like the rose buds better than the roses in full bloom. Something delicate and intriguing about them. I'm sending happy thoughts your way, can you feel them???

ladyfi said...

Hope your knee stops hurting!

Beautiful shots of the rose buds!

Sylvia K said...

Betsy, I send you many positive energy!
I wish you good message from medical doctor.
Your roses very very beautiful.
Embrace. Jarka

Ginny said...

Betsy, please e-mail me about the doctor!! I will be gone most of the day, but we will chat tonight when I get home. I am guessing there will be scans and X-rays scheduled first, so no decisions yet. SO sorry!! You know I never get tired of seeing your house in every season. SO your header is my favorite today!!! Your beautiful yard and house. And what a TREAT, only BUDS, I love it!! Summer Surprise and Peace are my favorites.

Ginny said...

P.S. What will you and George be doing for thanksgiving?

Retired English Teacher said...

What a great collection of rose buds you have acquired! I don't know how you remember all the names. I do love rose buds. Well, I love roses whether they are in bud form or full bloom.

Betsy, I hope you get some relief soon. Maybe a cortisone shot is needed, or perhaps some fluid has built up in the knee. Keep us in the loop. Hugs...

Annesphamily said...

I am praying! The knees are so weird and I hate when they give us a fit! Years ago I saw a young doctor who said just keep moving them! But sometime they just want to be difficult. Argh.....Many blessings to you and George and lots of prayer for you.

Love the roses but Welcome Home and the Apricot one are making me really smile. Hugs, Anne

Manzanita said...

Every rose is beautiful but I have always been drawn to the old fashion rose for the fragrance.
Knees, dear old knees. So fragile, yet so necessary. Sorry you are in pain and I hope it is something minor.

Susie Swanson said...

I have never seen such beauty as these roses. Sending lots of prayers for you and hoping it's something that can be fixed. Happy Thanksgiving to you both. Hugs,xo

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Betsy, You are certainly in my prayers! I hope your knee will be well and you won't be in pain, soon. Your Peace bud is my favorite of these gorgeous blossoms. have a great day & I hope your doctor's visit goes well.

Nellie said...

Roses are probably my favorite flower, and you have some gorgeous ones!

I'm really sorry to hear about your knee! There is never a good time to be bothered by things like this, but this is probably one of the worst!

Blessings,
Nellie

Ruth Hiebert said...

You know I am praying for you.I do hope this doesn't mess with plans you and George had for the Thanksgiving season. I love the rose buds. They have a special cuteness about them.

Arkansas Patti said...

Oh Betsy, I am so sorry about your knee. You were doing so well. Prayers are all ready on the way that it will be a simple cure and the pain will be soon gone. Do take care and keep us posted.
All those buds are so pretty and so full of promise.

Happyone said...

Can't pick a favorite out of all these beautiful buds.
I've already said a prayer for you.

LV said...

Sorry, I cannot pick a favorite. I love them all and what a beautiful bouquet they would make. Really hate to hear about you knee. Trust things improve quickly. Knee and back problems are the worst.

Betsy said...

Thank you for the beautiful rose pictures. The reminder of the beauty of summer is very welcome in these gray dreary days. Oh my dear Betsy, you indeed will be in my prayers. I know how frustrating it must be for you since you are such an avid hiker. I wish I lived cloer so I could help you, but I'm sure your dear Geroge is taking good care of you isn't he?
Blessings,
Betsy

Jim and Sandie said...

Prayers for you and your doctor for your knee pain. Hope it's nothing serious and you can soon be walking without pain.

amy @ Life in Pink Hi-Tops said...

Oh Betsy, I hope your knee is okay.
I am always amazed at the variety of your roses. They are all so beautiful.

Terri D said...

Well, all the rose buds are gorgeous, but I really liked the Tahitian Sunset Rose. Your yard is a wonderland!!

I'm so sorry to hear about your knee, and have offered a few prayers since I saw your post on Facebook this afternoon. Take care, and stay off it. Use the ice. Fingers crossed, and prayers continue!

David said...

Betsy, That's about it for the flowers this year. At least you have some great photos to look at to get through the winter! Best of luck with your knee...hopefully its an easy fix. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

".E." Lizard Breath Speaks, Beth said...

sorry to miss your post yesterday - the hubby was off and we took a day trip. he surprised me - i had my day pretty much planned and silly man totally changed that at a drop of the hat.

hope your knee feels better - i know how that feels. no fun.

i love the Summer Surprise Rose or the Ronald Reagan. i never realized they had such unique names like this. my Grandparents had a huge rose garden. not sure i ever knew all their names. i wonder how they picked them. but they would smell just heavenly. i miss that garden. i am so happy you continue to share with us friends. enjoy your Thanksgiving.
