So pretty Bella! I was noticing today how my roses start out with such a bright pink color and fad to such a pale pink. Hope you are having a great week.

Oh how pretty the faded color of the blooms is! What a nice surprise that must have been and now you don't have to feel so guilty. *winks*

Dear Bella,
Sooner or later this lovely flower was going to end it's purpose. It just came along sooner than not. But, before it's time ended it gave you a great surprise and thanks for sharing it with us! It is beautiful.

What a delightful surprise. They are as pretty in white as they were in blue. Mother Nature is amazing. Lovely post and I love the May Day basket you made in your previous post. Roses and Violettes are always my favorites.
