Roses in Full Bloom


I was hanging out the laundry the other day when--*sniff, sniff*, mmmmmm!--my nose was full of the scent of roses on the light breeze (pictures above). Now, hanging out the laundry is a pleasant enough experience, but coupled with the scent of roses on the air, it is one of THE MOST pleasant of experiences. So, I took a walk around the house and took some pictures of some of my roses to share with you. I just love roses--their scent, their colors, their shapes...everything about them is wonderful (well, except for maybe those nasty thorns!). Enjoy!
These are on the far back part of our property and are wild roses from Maine.
These thorny beauties are on the side of the garage--they add lots of color and fill a wide empty space, the garage wall.
These are out front under our dining room window and make the room smell wonderful when the window is open.
