Roses in the Rain...

Yes it's true... it's still raining!
I have never seen spring like this before!

  With the first day of summer tomorrow
I am holding out hope we will jump into gear!

(click to enlarge)

I know a lot of you are already well into some hot weather.

I am willing to trade some rain and cool temps
for some sun and warmth:-)
Any takers?

My  background photo is a big puddle on my pathway pavers.
the roses are
Eden, April in Paris, Enchanted Evening, and Gertrude Jekyll.
They do look pretty dripping wet though,  don't they?

Today I am joining...
Mary  at Little Red House

Thanks for visiting me today!

We could use a little rain here. It's been so hot and muggy.

Bella we are getting extra rain this Spring as well..lots of flooding etc. Our farmers aren't able to finish the grain seeding so I am not sure what is going to happen this year. Take care..your roses are beautiful!

Reminds me of Julie Andrews ... "Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens" ... absolutely lovely photos! I do wish I could send you some sunshine though. Hope the sun manages to come your way soon!

I'm in the Vancouver, B.C. area so I am right with you on the hope for sunshine. What is up with this weather. Luckily the snails and slugs leave the roses alone.
Yours are very pretty and healthy looking.

Rain drops on the petals of roses. A winning combination. Wonderful.

Heather said...

Oh I can't believe we're at the first day of Summer! Where in the heck did Spring go? It's been wet here too and I haven't done half of the gardening I would have liked to. Oh well, your roses are gorgeous - have yourself a great day!

Wendy said...

Yes.... rain, rain, rain (and cold!) I sure hope it warms up soon! Your roses are SO lovely. Mine are still buds, but very soon, very soon!

Love your blog!

Happy first day of summer Bella! Lovely roses as usual. My friend Kay near Portland says the same about the rain and cold. I'm sending some NM sunshine with this comment! Jacqueline

I would trade 'your rain' for our 'wind'. It is making work outside impossible! Your mosaic should be framed and hung on the wall, it's stunning!

Ruth said...

what a lovely post Bella. Your roses are so beautiful!

Lavender Cottage said...

Your roses still look pretty good for having had all that rain.
Yes, we are enjoying the vette very much and the top has been down when it didn't matter what my hair looked like when we arrived somewhere.

Hi Bella..
Working my way through the Mosaic Monday posts....:-) So sorry you are still being plagued with rain!
My roses would be dead of black spot by now...yours are still gorgeous, even in the rain!!! They certainly make pretty pictures!

Marie said...

Your beautiful roses are enjoying all that rain. I will trade you because here in SoCal, we need lots of rain, and we have plenty...lots and lots of sunshine.

Bella: I'll take some of your rain. My roses have never looked better but I'm tired of watering and need Mother Nature to pour down on my garden with her rain showers!
I did show some of my roses on a previous post!
Always a pleasure to see others rose!

Those roses are a pleasure to see. It has been raining here too, way too much for a summer.
