Mary Delle,
Thanks for the tour. I see we like the same kind of roses. I like the single and old fashions but gave up growing them years ago, too much work.

When I look at these beautiful roses, I wonder why I do not grow more in my garden.

Amy said...

Very pretty post. I bet they were pretty to see. I love the last rose!

I don't have any old-fashioned roses. Yours are beautiful! Black spot is the reason I hesitate get more roses in my garden. I should apologize, I called you Mary in my last post. Is it OK or is it like "Taty" without "ana" for me?

I just love, LOVE, roses. I loved growing them in California and now in Arizona. Thank you for such beautiful photos.

I love roses. I prefer those that have lovely fragrance to those ones that are just pretty to see and without any fragrance.

Gorgeous photos. I don't have any roses in my garden, but I'd like to get a yellow one which will grow in a container.

A perfect choice for Wordless Wednesday. Words could not have done these beauties justice. I think I would love to be in your garden right surrounded by those wonderful roses. Simply terrific.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

(Presuming you celebrate said holiday. Otherwise just Happy Thursday and call it a day.) heheh

I wonder if you collect these petals to make rose tea, or pressed petaled cards or potpourri.

It would be lovely as the beauty extend more than just the blooming time.

I love the photo with the hand and the pink fading to white roses. It was so nice to see so many rose photos in one place. I can't wait for my designer purple rose to start blooming this year.
