more indulgence - last summer's roses

by Pauline Wilson Brooks February. 06, 2012 2085 views

If anyone needs cheering up - please feel free to pick as many of these as you like!

As a teenager I worked on a rose nursery - came to see roses as real hard work! However, since that was back in the dim mists of time the memory of weeding, hoeing, budding and such like has faded a lot and I can (almost) appreciate their beauty - but I really prefer the old fashioned ones that smell great.. not that I can smell anything at the moment - still feeling very sorry for myself, sniffle, sniffle.

Lovely post Pauline...love the rose shots (were they taken in London perhaps). Reminds me of my visit there this past summer. :)

So wonderful to see such lovely sights while sitting in my house among piles of snow! Haha...that didn't sound right...the snow IS outside, thank goodness! ;)) I've noticed several flowery, springy posts today on PB that came from archives....I think we're all getting done with wintertime!

Polly, these are such pretty shots - I really like the multi-colors in #5 & 7, but my favorite is the last one of the white roses. I wish I knew more about them, but it sounds as if you do!
