TODAY'S FLOWERS ~ 34 Roses Plus

Spring is blooming in full force, the mix and meld
of scent outside is enough to make your senses swoon.
Wisteria, Dendrobium Orchids alternating with Roses
and Philadephus....

This little Cecile Brunner Rose, less than 2"across,
exudes a gentle yet strong perfume

another rose with a small but fragrant flower covers
the side of one of our horse stables

Philadelphus that barely survived lat year's severe
drought is reviving again

one of our great joys, Souvenir de la Malmaison,
a perfumed wonder of sheer delight.

What would roses be without their friendship with
Lavender? Pink and blue make a perfect team.

Eternal thanks to Luiz Santilli Jr. both for starting this meme
and, with the help of his team, keeping it going for all of us.
