My Roses and Awards

I am honoured to again have received another award. I have received this award 3 times in the last week. It came from Maria and Teresa and Laura Thank you all so much. I am passing it on to Cindy and Merisi and Sara All 3 have brilliant Weblogs, always hard choosing among the many brilliant blogs I visit.

As the first flush of roses has finished I thought it would be nice to have a reminder of the beauty that was, or at least the ones I got to take photos of.

Barbara,
Congratulations! The roses are beautiful!
I have been dealing with black spot and little aphids. I have been out there treating them.
So I shall simply enjoy your beautiful roses. :)
Blessings,

How very sweet of you Barbara. I am so very touched by your generous heart towards me.

I love to see you roses...would love to know the names? 5th one down from the top, big light pink blousy bloom...yum!

Mine are starting a bit of a rebloom, and even though it is not the glories of the first flush, I am blessed by their sweet and fragrant appearance in my garden.

Congratulations on the beautiful award!

Your roses are exquisite. I've not been able to grow a proper rose since I left Arizona. Though I love yellow roses, my favorite here is the melon colored one...so lovely.

What's the update on the computer?

Sara said...

Such beautiful roses and each one different. Which one has the sweetest fragrance? My favorite, at least if we are going by appearance, is the 12th one.

Thank you, Barbara, for honoring me with this award. I'm touched and pleased that you thought of me.

Lots and lots of lovely roses. They are my favorite. The Double Delight is one of my favs, the fragrance is so strong. I really like the pink David Austen rose too, it is so pretty.

You deserve your awards! I absolutely love your roses. The orange ones are so vivid and gorgeous. You are very talented with your flowers. I don't have a clue how to raise them. They are so pretty. I'll bet it smells wonderful at your house.

Merisi said...

Dear Barbara,´

congratulation on your award,
and thank you so much for sharing it with me! I feel truly honoured. :-)

You have an amazing variety of beautiful roses in your garden! Is that first one (the red and white one) a "Nostalgia"? My mother has it in her garden, and there are more than one in the Volksgarten's Rose Garden. I photographed them recently, but due a problem with my external hard drive, those images and about two years worth of photos are out of my reach now, hopefully not forever.

Your roses look very beautiful and so "healthy". One can see how much you take care of them.
