Summer Roses

Hello lovelies; as it has been a couple of weeks since I last penned a post (where oh where do the days go??),  I thought I would send a little happy colour and fragrance to your wintry world......that is of course to those of you whom are about to step into the dead of Winter. I know, I know, your wintry wonderland is rather beautiful, snow-capped mountains, hot chocolate in front of the fire, perhaps a little woolly knitting/crocheting and all that.....but for those dark, grey and gloomy days......how about a little Aussie colour; how about a feast of gorgeous Summer Roses. As for those of you lovelies who live south of the Equator, you are probably knee deep in roses as well. Never mind, perhaps you would like a bo-peep too. =) 

The roses down here at the bottom of the world have awakened from an ever-so-long, deep sleep and have decided to smile with the happiest of smiles. Ol' Man Sun is beginning to cover us with his warmth and sunny brightness and I must say, the roses are a-glowing! Though we don't have oodles of rose bushes, the roses we do have are blooming in gorgeous hues, and I might add, the most intoxicating of fragrances.

A vision in pinks.

A vision in lemons, oranges and tangerines.





Honestly, a basket filled with roses truly is a vision splendid, not to mention the perfume wafting in the air is divine.

Roses, warm summery days and in a little while my favourite flowers of all time....the beautiful blue Hydrangeas. But for now I will just take time to smell the beautiful Roses. =)

Until the next time...........

  3. Oh thank you for the lovely roses. No snow on the ground here yet.... but also the trees are bare and even the Chrysanthemums are all gone by. So the roses are most welcome.

  6. Oh my Kim they are so gorgeous, and with that many of them in the picture I can almost smell them myself :) We have just a touch of color on the trees but most of the trees are bare now and so this is a lovely colorful sight indeed... some of them look almost transparent, so soft and delicate, oh my, and yes a basket full is always a lovely image and on a quilt just takes it over the top glorious!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  17. Kim, oh my! What delicious roses! They not only smell heavenly but the petals are so soft. It will be months before my garden blooms again. Thank you for sharing yours to tide me over! xx

  18. I simply cannot manage to wrap my mind around all those amazing roses - in one place, at one time and grown in your own garden. Then I try to imagine the scent and that too is beyond anything I can imagine. Sigh. Not one bit green-eyed with jealousy from this corner of the world.

  19. I absolutely ADORE your roses and the beautiful vignettes you create with them! You really know how to bless the heart, mind and soul with the beauty in the world around you! I can imagine your heart is all a-flutter with such swooning beauty surrounding you, and how thankful I am you thought of us up here in the north with little color right now, and how much your delightful colorful bouquets of roses brightened my day! Enjoy each and every bloom Kim, I think I can smell their luscious fragrance wafting its way here :) Many hugs to you today!

  20. I do love to see roses and ours have all disappeared now, so thank you for your beautiful pictures. It is very cold and grey here so it makes it extra special to see all the wonderful colour xx

  21. YUMMY! I can almost smell them! You are a rose girl, for sure. I love the pink. LOVE it!
    I'm happy about summer coming for you and I will enjoy it when we are blanketed with snow. So far, it's been nice, but snow WILL come.
    Take care, lovely one!

  22. Roses just seem to bring a smile to anyone's face, even those shivering here in the far north beneath ever-present gray skies! Seeing them gathered so beautifully in your lovely arrangements is such a delight. I especially love the basket-full. Thank you for sharing these lovelies. Sending hugs xo Karen

  26. Oh my sweet rose of summer - how I envy you. Even in our summer I envy you, as I no longer can grow roses here - not enough sun and they get all sorts of distresses and I hate to do that to them. Don brings me roses so I won't complain. Your photos are divine and I can almost smell the sweet scent. In Northern California our yard was edged in old pink roses - the kind that have the sweetest scent - I can smell them even now. I am glad you are enjoying summer. We are swimming in rain - the rivers are flooding - houses are sadly being washed down into the flooding rivers. We are safe up on our little hill - our hearts ache for those who have lost their homes. We hope for a day of sunshine on Monday - it will be our first in ever so long. Until then I shall re-read your post and enjoy your sunny roses. Happy flowers my dear.

  28. Ah...Divine post dear Sara!!!!!!!!!...................

    Thank you so much for such DELIGHTFUL sharing which enriched my day with joy and serenity!

    we live in south asian country and experiencing mild winter in southern part though northern part of country is having snow windy rains as well .

    i miss summer blooms though here summers are extreme and garden mostly bloom in winters as our rose plants are starting to grow new buds slowly and hubby did new plantation of seasonal flowers .
    you have beautiful variety of roses my friend

  29. Snow, or no snow; there is always time to stop and smell the roses. Especially when they are as gorgeous as these! Oh how I long for a basket full of roses!! As soon as Christmas is over I will be counting the days until spring. :) For now, I will enjoy the cozy warmth of the fire indoors!
    hugs,
    Jann

    1. Oh no, if you will be counting the days until Spring.....I suppose that means I should be counting the days till Autumn; but I really don't want to. =) Enjoy the cozy warmth of the fire indoors, lovely Jann.

  30. Oh my goodness Kim, I so appreciate your Aussie color! You are quite right about the cold, grey, wintry days and honestly I am not looking forward to the cold...it's been amazingly mild in NH which is unusual and I am thankful for that! But cold is coming....I do love some snow--emphasis on the some! Your roses are so beautiful! Are these grown by you or did you purchase them? I can't wait to see your hydrangeas!!! Enjoy your summer! xx

    1. So happy to send a little Aussie colour to your "cold, grey, wintry days" that will soon visit NH, Linda. Yes, these roses are growing in the garden. They are particularly beautiful this year. I'm with you, I cannot wait till the Hydrangeas begin to bloom.....won't be long now. Hope you are enjoying a fabulous week, lovely Linda. Kim Xx
