Lucky me

We had company last weekend. Mark's mom brought me this gorgeous bouquet of roses from her yard. They are beginning to fade now, their petals dropping. I like this stage the best...faded beauty.

I am also honored to have received a blog award from La Vie Est Belle. The admiration goes both ways, M. Kate. Your blog is one of the best.

My dearest Diva, up early I assume :D Thanks for the mention and the friendship :)

Those roses are BEAUTIFUL !!! I hardly see roses except in flower shops, which I dont go often anyway. We dont plant them, too hot here. I could almost smell the roses from here.

You have a fabulous day ;D

Stunning! Wow, those are as beautiful as they get. How fortunate to be able to grow them herself. I have no luck with roses.
