Just to Put some JOY in your Soul

One of our favorite Roses we have had in the yard for many years;  Meet MR. LINCOLN after some rain.  This is one of the most fragrant roses we have!!!!! 
Hello Blog Friends,   Welcome to February!!!!!   Can that be????  Mercy Me!!!!!   How was January at your home?  We had a very mild and rainy month.   I am hoping to finally get a little WINTER weather here in Tennessee this month...????!!!!!!!  This ole woman would LOVE to see some snow before Spring!!!!!!

On the other hand,   I don't know about you --but Winter  can become drab and dreary at times....   Do you miss the warm Sunshine and COLORS of Spring and Summer?   I am one who loves WINTER --but will admit that I am in the mood for some COLOR today!!!!

SO--here are some pictures of some of the beautiful ROSES in our yard this past July (which I never found time to post on my blog ).   I am blessed to have a wonderful husband who loves to grow Roses.   He 'babies' them and takes good care of them ---and I get to benefit the results,  by admiring them and smelling them when they bloom.  He brings a beautiful rose into the house for me almost every day during the season.   Thank You,  George!!!!

Hope you enjoy this taste of Summer today --as you admire a few of our 'beauties'..... All pictures were taken in JULY, 2019.    I also hope that seeing them brings joy into your hearts and souls....

Hope you enjoyed the "Pretties" today!!!!!

Have an awesome week.
