Old Fashion Romantic Roses

The roses are blooming 
What is it about a rose that just shouts romance?
Is it the smell of sweet tea or the loose petticoat like petals?
Or just the fact that when someone give you a bouquet of roses 
know they love you!

I don't really have a favorite rose, but I'm partial to the soft peachy colors and light pinks

When they start to droop a little after a few days... 
I really think they look even more beautiful
I like to gather them up in large bunches 
and squeeze them 
in to the vase

How romantic!
A pretty bouquet just for you

Have a happy weekend

  1. I think of the word "blowsy" for the roses in your pictures. They are just lovely and I know they smell like heaven.

  3. Beautiful! You're so lucky to be enjoying them in May. My David Austin's are just now starting to green up a bit. It will be another month before I have blooms. I believe you try to practice organic methods (as do I). I'm curious to know what you use on your roses to prevent bugs, I.e aphids. My roses rarely make it I to the house because the bugs "bug" me. :)

    1. I really have had very little problems with aphids. I use a pre-emergent rose and pest food right after a heavy prune in January. Throughout the summer I add organic compost around the roots and work it in with a little trowel. Thats about it. I think if the pests or mildew are really bad a heavy prune is your best bet. ; o ))) They always seem to do better after a good haircut!

  4. Beautiful roses...they are my all time favourite flower.
    Love your bouquet!
