Your roses are magnificent! I told someone the other day that my two favorite colors for roses are yellow and coral. Yours are lovely!

Kristen said...

Oh, your roses are beautiful! It will be a while before mine have recovered from the winter and start to bloom. I am jealous of your bounty.

Janet said...

What glorious shades of rose - these are so beautiful and inspiring!

Betty said...

Wow, you have these in your garden?! How beautiful! I'm envious because the weather's too hot for roses where I am, though they grow a lot of them in the highlands where it's colder.

Grace @ Sandier Pastures said...

You have a very lovely rose garden!!

You have roses already? Wow. Around here, we have tulips and ... rain.

therubycanary said...

Wow, are those real pics from your garden or examples? Roses don't bloom up here until July.

The Bumbles said...

I like the perspective of the bottom right. I wish I could say I'm as honorable as Ms. Goldman, but I'd rather have roses on the table AND diamonds around my neck. Sue me ;0)

Clara said...

How beautiful. One of the blessings of living in Southern CA. We won't have roses here for another month.

Jo, a retired teacher said...

Oh, your pictures made me miss my former house. I had 18 rose bushes and 17 different varieties. My gosh it smelled wonderful. I hope the young couple who bought the house are still enjoying them.

The Gal Herself said...

Your garden is beautiful! You must have a green thumb, and a lot of patience.

Travis said...

They are lovely!
