  2. Such beautiful roses - my favourite flower. I had ivory coloured ones at my wedding and left my bouquet on my dad's grave. Such very special flowers to me.

  6. May I join you for tea? The roses are fabulous and I do not look all glamorous when I am in the garden like the lady in the photo.
    Today I am giving away a copy of a book about simplifying your life, to one commenter on my blog. You are invited to visit, after your tea.

  8. Love the images of the roses! As I walked by my flower beds this afternoon, I was reminded of how much I long to plant flowers. Hopefully that day will come soon!

  29. My sweet princess...are you enjoying your shoe? Maybe you can wave your wand and make spring come quicker for us!!! We had a wonderful thaw a couple of days ago, but like you, we are going to get some snow tonight! BUT! It will go away in due time and those fabulous flowers of yours will pop up in no time and my addition will be completely decorated. We are still needing to paint the dining room and sell one big piece of furniture to complete the picture. Ahhhhh...there is nothing like the HOPE of spring!!! Anita

  30. ME TOO! Can't wait for warm weather..even if our garden will never have roses that beautiful. :)
    Stopped over from the weekend blog hop, and glad I did!
