So I thought for Valentines Day I would give you some roses this morning.

The best kind I think…the ones with roots.

I did notice all the pretty roses in the stores the last few days.

And they we’re pretty to look at…. but where is the smell?

So I will take my rose bouquets' looking like this….from my own garden.

Or any of these will do nicely….

Of course I have to wait a bit for delivery.


I am guessing they’ll be here late in May….

But that is okay, I am a gardener….

I am use to the waiting…..

But that does not mean I enjoy it!

Hurry spring…I am missing my roses…. Have a great day Valentine’s Day everyone.


And Happy Gardening…..Brooke

  1. What a beautiful collection of roses you have in your garden. I am just chomping at the bit to get out in my rose garden. But I must wait at least until March to get started. I always want to have blooms for Mother's Day Weekend.

    Great post!

  2. Hi Brooke, Just when I thought your blog couldn't get any prettier! What dazzling roses and the vintage maiden is delightful. I'm like you. I can't remember the last time my hubby bought me roses or any cut flowers for that matter. They're great for others but like you, I'll wait for the delivery. Your Climbing America in the sidebar is a must-have. I think I'll be tearing up the lawn. :) Stay warm.

  3. Hi, this is my first visit to your blog and i think it is very attractive. This post on roses is very charming. Is any rose left? you put them all together. The sketch is superb.

  4. Hi,your roses are Beautiful,as are all your pictures.Smiles to you.
