TODAY'S FLOWERS ~ Roses Again

Here are some of the roses in my front garden, unfortunately
they are just fading and apart from them there are just two white
Oriental Lilies in a pot to give me consolation.



This bed of roses is in tones of pink, except for 'Avon', the one
touch of red as contrast.


In the back garden most roses are in the inbetween phase.
Below is 'Perle d'Amour', the flowers are only just over 1"
across but sweetly perfumed and profuse in repeating.


All photos enlarge and the Logo takes you to so many more.

Today's Flowers is presented by Luiz Santilli Jr. and his fabulous team.

  20. As rosas são maravilhosas, não há quem não se apaixone por elas... São verdadeiras obras primas elaboradas por Deus no ápice de sua inspiração.
    Adoro rosas, aqui no Rio tenho um pequeno jardim onde cultivo algumas.
    Um grande abraço!

  23. I thought I'd pop back to answer your question. The first two narcissus in my post are very fragrant. I went outside to verify as sometimes the scents all mix together but it has a very pleasant scent.

  28. Arija, these Roses are so beautiful,I love that you use different colours that all seem to compliment one another. Your gardens must bring you such joy. My first Lenten Rose has just come alive once again, as are my ground flowers Crocus, Hyacinth, as well as Daffodils and Jonquils. Spring is finally upon us here in KY. I hope you are doing well Arija~

  36. aaaah! I keep thinking of you. I passed by the floral shop yesterday and saw the flowers and when I saw the roses, my heart jumped and I said your name. How are you? I think of you everyday and when I see a rose. Take care my beloved Arija!

  37. I was so sure I had left a comment when I visited these roses the first time around, but apparently I was dreaming!

    I enjoy them, thank you!
    Happy Easter, Arija!

  38. Arija..I read a comment you left on another blog. I am so sorry to read about your pain. It is exhausting to try to cope with it. I am lucky at most of mine is made tolerable by medication and I don't have it severely very often. I hope they find something to help you.. I am sending you strength to deal with it and a warm cloud of love to surround you....Michelle
