The cold days of fall keep me inside
peering out the windows
reminiscing about summer
and roses...

So I thought I'd share a photo journal
of the roses of summer....

The links to the original posts
are below each bloom
in case you'd like to visit
and take a walk in the summer sun...

    I remember my grandmother used to grow the Queen Elizabeth roses. So pretty and smelled devine too. Your roses are so pretty and I love the lavender rose. The scent of the lavender rose is not like any other. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

    Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
    Oh my gosh these photos are absolutely priceless. I love, love, love the Eden Rose in the rain. And the April in Paris, takes my breath away.

    You have a green thumb, and definitely have a way with roses. What beauty you have shared today. I thank you for taking me strolling in the rose garden at Bella Rose Cottage today.

    Have a beautiful Saturday sweet friend.

    Many hugs and much pinkie love, Sherry

    Dearest Bella,

    One will never tire of roses so this is a very thoughtful idea to share them again with your readers during the dull winter period!

    Have a great weekend!

    Dear Bella

    Ooh thank you and what a lovely walk through your garden of roses over summer!!
    Living on the other side of the world, I'm so happy that summer is almost here.
    Our roses are all blooming now and putting on their best show.

    After reading your words it's made me think I must savour this time and store away my photos and commit to memory the perfume of each and every rose for those long winter days which will come again!

    Thank you Bella for visiting me and being so gracious leaving your lovely comment.

    I've joined your followers and look forward to your next post!

    All your roses are so pretty. We still have a few hanging on, but with the cooler weather, they are not very showy.

    Love your cherub planter along with the view of your roses with the rain drops.

    What a beautiful walk through your rose garden. Such beautiful blooms we have enjoyed this summer. It is great to look back and enjoy them again and again. It gives me hope for spring!

    NanaDiana said...

    Bella- You have the most beautiful roses ever! I love them. I went back and read your mirror makeover. I have never seen a mirror like that one. It looks so nice painted....where did you end up putting it?
    Your roses are just to die for. That cottage rose is beautiful too. I don't think I would ever want to come inside if I had a garden like that! I can't picture you not in your garden and surrounded by plants. I think your hubby needs to build you a great big greenhouse where you can putz year round. It will make me happy just thinking about you being there!>) hugs- Diana

    Hi Bella
    Would it be fair to choose one rose over the rest? They are all beautiful but Gertrude Jekyll has always stood out as a gardener of distinction and I love the dusty-mauve colour of the rose named after her. Do you have a favourite from the ones you showed?

    Donnie said...

    Just beautiful Bella. Happy Pink Saturday.
