Everything is Coming up Roses ~

As you can tell from my April header, everything is coming up roses...or so it seems; they are blooming throughout the garden in magnificent splendor. This morning I took the photo below of the two standard roses flanking the sundial in the little herb garden; the sun was just beginning to peek through. This is one of the main reasons I garden: for the love of roses...and other flowers of course. Roses however will always be my favorite, but if I could grow Peonies that just might be up for further debate.

What is your favorite flower? So many to choose from it is a difficult choice.
Thank you for visiting have a wonderful rosy day!

  1. Adrienne, your roses are stunning. Mine are going crazy also. Don't you love the first blooms in Spring in So CA.
    My favorite flower of course is roses.
    Happy Spring!

  2. Le choix est bien difficile... je crois en ce qui me concerne qu'il est dirigé par mon enfance, lorsque ma grand-mère coupait les fleurs du jardin pour faire un bouquet. Je crois que celui que je préférais était celui qu'elle composait avec des pivoines roses, blanches et bordeaux. Elle y ajoutait quelques petits oeillets blancs très parfumés... Dans la maison, lorsqu'on entrait, c'était un parfum qui souhaitait la bienvenue...
    Votre billet réanime de bons souvenirs...
    Vos photos sont merveilleuses et vos roses, hum!!! sentent jusque-là !
    Gros bisous à vous

  3. Adrienne, I cannot believe how beautiful your roses are. I forget you live in Southern CA so you are able to have they all year long practically. My favorites, lilacs are just starting to open now and they look like they will be beautiful again, this year..Happy Wednesday..Judy

  10. lovely seeing roses while we have snow upon snow here in Michigan. Ice storm last night. Not even the daffodils have popped their heads up yet. Did see some snowdrops braving the cold, but they must have froze last your garden.
