Sometimes on the way to your dream,

you get lost and find a better one.

today, I'm in the mood for....


Nothing else.
Just roses.


  1. Lovely.
    There is no such thing as an ugly rose, is there?

  2. Aww I just wish they lasted a bit longer when they're cut. I received a dozen long stemmed last week and they lasted 4 days.

  3. They've had an amazing year this year, haven't they? Even our 'black thumb' roses flowered, which hardly ever happens!!

    Happy travels!!

  4. Ooohhhhhh. I miss the roses we had in Trinity gardens - your neck of the woods is famous for them but I can count on one hand how many I've seen here in Flemmo.....

  5. Jayne; you're absolutely right. They're all beautiful.

    Baino; did they come with a little sachet of stuff to put in the water? It helps them last longer. Otherwise dissolve a little sugar in hot water and add it to the vase water, that helps too. Change water daily and trim a teensy bit off each stem at the same time.

    Red Nomad OZ; The dry winter has set everything flowering amazingly well.

    Kath; I could take a walk past your old house and see how your roses are doing. And at the same time get a good look at everyone elses.

  6. P.S. Kath; Start a trend, plant a rose.
