While I again readjust to LAK - life after kids (+ grandkids)
and bemoan my fate as a grandma who lives thousand of miles away
from the aforementioned loved ones,
I thought a walk in a rose garden might improve my normally sunny disposition...
so off we went (we being a good friend and I) to one of my favorite places.
As you can see, it was a perfect day;
the kind that has healing effects on body and soul.
The flowers, as always, were gorgeous and we spent a lot of time breathing in their fragrance
and admiring their beauty!
Of course, it wasn't the best time for photography...
but oh well that just means I will have to make a return trip:)
It was heavenly being surrounded by roses of every kind:
climbers, old garden, miniatures, English legend and more.
The perfume scented air, the birds, the dragonfly, the incredible colors and blooms!
As always I was drawn to the pinks...
could it be the influence of seeing so much pink on my granddaughter?
Yikes, I mentioned the 'g' word...
back to the flowers and the amazing garden:)
This one's color was stunning!
I think I need a larger yard.
I think I need a full time gardener.
I think I'm going to have to come back here soon...
I think I'm going to have to save the rest for another post:)
If you love roses,
what is your favorite one?
Do you have a rose garden?
A BIG thank you to the staff at Heirloom Roses who extended us a great deal of assistance during our time there; you are awesome! Also, thank you to them for graciously allowing me to post photos of the garden here on my blog--appreciate that:) For those interested you can see more photos of roses and learn more about their care and even order some, if you would like, at Heirloom Roses' great website here.
As is always the case, unless I specifically state otherwise, I am in no way associated with Heirloom Roses except for being a fellow rose lover! Oh yes, and a happy customer.
