I'm home!
After spending a bit of quality time
with Daughter Dear and friends in
California; I've finally returned home!
It was a fabulous visit and I was treated
to a wonderful day at the spa complete
with sauna and steam room! It was
Since being home it seems with spring
comes numerous home projects
to keep me busy. Dear Hubby
and I are currently working to refurbish
our front yard. Since moving in we have
devoted most of our spring planting time
to our backyard. Now it's time for
some great curb appeal for the front.
The only great thing that my front yard
currently has going for it is the
fact that I have 19 rose bushes!
With that said ....

Here is a sampling of what I cut yesterday!

My roses are gorgeous this year!
With so many bushes ...there are so many colors.

Roses, Roses, Roses!
Roses everywhere!

Just a small sampling of the
beautiful shapes, sizes and colors!

For these I just cut ...
I used one of my favorite
vases! Two sweet love birds!

I really don't think the photo does
justice ...the bouquet is gorgeous!
A full two dozen roses ...all in one vase!
Simply gorgeous!
So what favorite flower is
blooming in your garden?
