Midsummer roses

Thank you for the warm welcome back - you are all too sweet! I have sure missed blogging & chatting with you.
How cheeky was that seal in yesterday's post?! No, unfortunately I didn't take the photo. No seal or penguin would survive the summer temperatures where I've been!
I have returned from a month at our farm with a 'cocky's suntan' from many hours in the garden. Despite a hot Aussie summer, our garden is coping quite well, and my roses greeted me with their unparalleled beauty yet again. They are so resilient & undemanding. I hope these images from my garden warm your heart, especially those of you in the midst of a snowbound winter!

  10. such beautiful roses, they are pretty forgiving plant to grow aren't they, and will adapt to most circumstances, but those roses look pretty well cared for! Grimaldi looks so pretty and delicate.

  16. When seeing all these beautiful roses in your post, I am longing to the ones in my garden. But we still have to wait as snow is covering everything. It's the perfect time now for sewing, and this I am doing during winter time. I've been a silent reader of your beautiful blog and always like to return.

  17. These are gorgeous pictures! I wish I had a garden like that! I grow herbs and a bit of vegetables, but I have not had any luck with roses. What does the rest of the garden look like? Inquiring minds want to know!

  19. I love all of these Roses and the 'Grimaldi' I bought last summer.
    When I face this rose I have to think at Monaco and the beautiful Mediteranian Sea.
