It was so nice to have my roses blooming their little heads off this last week. Of course when they have the annual Rose Show in July at the hospital where I work, they don't even give me a bud to enter. Anyway, I picked a few last night and put them in my kitchen window (don't we spend a lot of time in that area, ladies ?)and decided to share them with today. They are much prettier in person. For this picture I took them over and set them on the woodstove.It's sad to think that in just weeks, the roses will be gone for another year. My two full size bushes are ones that I moved here from my former house. The orage colored rose is actually a Canadian variety that I was able to purchase via the head gardener at the hospital. He has connections. I have several minatures in wooden containers, also.
We have hundreds of beautiful roses and flowers at the hospital. I'll take my camera to work one day next week and take some pictures to share.
Ok.....this time I'm really off to unpack and put away my suitcase. And then I'm going to take a little ride in my car for a special treat. (Robin, don't you tell !)
