Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. My Header Picture for November shows another favorite place to visit anytime of year, but especially in the Fall. This photo of mine shows you "AUTUMN in the SMOKY MOUNTAINS of Tennessee", and I took this picture on October, 20, 2020.

ROSES in Autumn

Dear Friends,  As you know George and I have a lot of flowers blooming in our yard throughout the year.  Most of them only bloom for a few months.  The Roses, however, bloom from May until November (or later --depending upon the first hard frost, which we have not had yet)...  

George 'loves' and takes such good care of all of our beautiful Roses and I am so fortunate when he brings a rose inside for me to enjoy,  almost every day... Hope you enjoy this group of ROSES today.  In order to see the names,  "mouse over" each picture.   Hope you enjoy the Roses in Autumn!!!!









WELL---what's your favorites??? This last little jewel named Violet's Pride  is named after Violet --in Downton Abbey,  one of my all-time favorite shows.  SO--at this moment,  Violet is a favorite.  The first rose at the top, Double Delight,  is one that has been with us for about 20 years now--and she will always be a favorite.  

Have a great week, my friends...  I am getting ready for some surgery next week ---so I'm anxiously awaiting it --and hoping for good results...  Prayers please. I just want to begin to feel better!! Thanks!

Hugs,

Betsy💝💛💚💕

I think I'm partial to Bewitched. They're all so pretty.

My Carolyn Rose. Love the tight petals.
Hoping your surgery goes smoothly and successfully. Keeping you in my prayers.

Hope the surgery goes well for you.

My dad used to grow roses and he would cut one for my mom. Thanks for bringing back that memory for me.

You got some beautiful pictures of our roses. I'm glad you like them. I'm happy that they are still blooming.

Dee said...

They are all beautiful but I really like the "Brigadoon" and "My Carolyn Rose." Praying all goes well for your surgery!!

Betsy, I'm so sorry you're facing another surgery. Is it an ablation? They want to do another one to my friend but she's putting it off.
I can't choose just one favorite as I love them all. We've had temperatures near 0, yes ZERO, this week and all of the flowers are gone for sure. Also 7 inches of snow. Yuck! It's starting early this year but I have hopes that it will quench some of the fires around the west.
Blessings,
Betsy

Just gorgeous! Good luck with your surgery.

Numbers 1 through 9 are my favorite. So much beauty. I normally tend to lean towards the peach colors, but these are all so very pretty.

Barb said...

They are all so beautiful but Enchantment wins for me. Good Luck on your surgery Betsy. I'm thinking of you.

I LOVE how the names pop up over the pictures. That is really, really cool! It does not take much to entertain me most days and that was great entertainment - - -especially since it is a skill I do not have.
Surgery? - - - Praying you will be fine and it will fix whatever your problem is.
