rose love

roses-----I love 'em

can't seem to get enough of 'em

I always seem to take and share too many photos for one post, but it's just so hard not to

 so here are some of the bouquets I've been enjoying lately

even when they are sitting in front of a very dirty kitchen window

Colette rose in a pitcher in the living room

especially when paired with a pot of Limelight hydrangeas

the rose bushes themselves have been badly chewed on by a lot of bugs this year,
so they look pretty sad by the end of summer
but they still produce enough blooms for beautiful bouquets

a little messy abandon going on in this part of the garden

but I kind of like messy!

I never tire of seeing roses, they are beautiful and timeless and you are blessed to have such a lovely collection of them growing in your gardens. The way you display them is so feminine and pretty.

Thank you for sharing.

Have a wonderful week ~ FlowerLady

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

I don't see messy at all. Just lots of pretty. You ain't seen dirty til you've been the windows here. :) Best wishes, Tammy

bobbie said...

Your blooms are so beautiful ~ messy is not EVEN an issue!! TFS ~

Terra said...

For me, you can NOT take and share too many photos of your lovely roses, in bouquets and growing. The Limelight hydrangeas are a nice addition too.

Barbara Lilian in France said...

Your roses are such a pretty pale pink , they look so lovely in the metal pot and if you hadn't mentioned the messy bit in your garden, I would never have noticed it, with such pretty roses climbing over the fence.
I too never tire of roses. Lovely photos.

June, Roses are my favorite flower too. Your bouquets and those in the vase are sweet beauty defined. I used to walk around my Mom's gardens which gave her great pride. At the end of Summer she would point out what's dying off, what the beetles and other pests had gotten to, how they were fading. I would say Mom, Mother Nature is giving them their beauty rest, it's time for them to slumber to rest and release their beauty when it's time. Your photography always captures a moment of nature's beauty that warms our hearts. Bless your Green thumb, the nurturing you provide your gardens and for sharing with us.

Elizabeth said...

I love roses also, hence my love of "old country roses" on my blog post today ! Your roses are gorgeous !

DD's Cottage said...

Trisha said...

If I had roses as beautiful as yours and took pictures like you do, I would never quit! I can almost smell those dreamy roses from here. I hope you are having a wonderful summer and staying cool!


Daniela said...

Oh June …. your roses are so prolific …. you always have them in abundance and such beautiful photographs of them too.
I have hydrangea limelight and another one called vanilla fraise…. have you got that one June ? If not, then you must get it …. it has JUNE written all over it !!! XXXX

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

I love the messy abandon too! In my wildest dreams I can't imagine growing roses in this abundance. What a joy! So beautiful.

Cindy said...

I could just die over your roses and your beautiful garden. I love the chippy door in the background too. You have the best garden and flower photos ever!


sarah said...

So beautiful! There is really nothing nicer than roses.

Susan McShannon-Monteith said...

They are all so beautiful June especially the Colette rose. It looks like a David Austen.
I hope you are keeping well and enjoying these lingering days of Summer.
Take care...

The kitchen window doesn't look dirty to me. The flowers are beautiful in all the white planters and pitchers. Pink and whites are my favorites.

Sylvia said...

Such gorgeous display of beauty, June!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh June, your roses....SIGH! And of course, your photography remains on the top of my list of the BEST blog photographers! That David Austin rose has become my favorite as I've seen it on Instagram and just love the texture.

Thank you dear June for coming to visit my post. Friends everywhere are special.

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Your roses are so lovely, June...pure romance...

Unknown said...

Oh so so pretty. I love to see pics of your gardens. Those roses are gorgeous.

Seawashed said...

Those climbing roses are just breathtaking. They are too beautiful for words.

BECKY said...

Hi Sweet June,
Ahhh...such a delight to be able to pop in and catch up with all the beauty you create and capture. It just makes my heart sing to behold it! And, of course, God's amazing masterpieces...the flowers...are so enchanting and delicate. I have to say that this is one of my peace and quiet places to visit...I love it so. And I so appreciate each minute you take to make this special place for all of us!!

Hope your week is filled with little joys!

Hello June
Your roses are as beautiful as ever... I can almost smell their heavenly fragrance.
I am sure you are enjoying the last weeks in your lovely garden...I can't believe how fast the summer has gone by.
Take care my Blogging friend...

Blondie's Journal said...

I will never tire of seeing your gorgeous flowers since you display them in so many ways. The vases and pots and pottery---you are so good at 'stylin', my friend!!

I know your garden must be overflowing right now, as well as your heart!! :)

Happy summer, June!

Betty said...

I love roses, but only have one rose bush in our yard right now. It is yellow and smells so nice. Plan on buying more next year. Love yours and the vases are so pretty that you have them in.

HWIT BLOGG said...

Lovely, romantic and just beautiful June...love your pictures!
Have a great week, take care.

Home and Lifestyle said...

I think you never share too much photos of all that wonderful flowers in your garden en later in your house. It's a joy to enjoy! Thanks for sharing, dear June.

Sending hugs, Ingrid

Your bug chewed rose is a perfect reminder that life is not easy nor always beautiful, but there are beautiful moments to hang onto. When "the bugs start chewing" we can look for those beautiful moments and know it will be wonderful again. Your yard must be what heaven smells like. I've always thought that there must be some nutritional value to fragrances. If some can kill then some can heal so I breathe in deep lungfuls of rose scented air to calm my brains and let my soul enjoy the delightful moment. I'm sure that somehow it receives strength from this.

Katherine said...

Do you know how many people try to have this romantic style of garden - you do it so perfectly. I love this type of rose - wrong or right, I always call them old roses. The rambling open petal, romantic Victorian look - tugs at my heart every time I see them. And there are never too many pictures from your beautiful garden.

We just opened up the canopy at the back of our property - it was too concentrated with tree's. Now with more light and moisture the mature tree's will be healthier, and I will be able to plant more variety of flowers with the increase of sun to the garden.


Lana Manis said...

Oh my, June! Thank you for sharing the beauty in your backyard this morning! I still don't have any roses planted yet, but these photos are very inspiring! Have a blessed day. :)

lala said...

When you are a rose lover you can never have enough photos, so please always keep sharing all of your beautiful images. Colette is one of my favorite roses and she does look so lovely in a vase. My roses have also been dined on by many insects and the leaves are a disaster, but oh how I love the blooms!

Mary Palumbo Collings said...

June , your roses are absolutely gorgeous!

Victoria said...

Oh my...you have a green thumb June! These are so beautiful:) I'm terrible with plants, they usually get taken over with mold or I over/under water them and they die on me:( It's really tricky here in our humid environment but I honestly can't say I was any better with them in other regions. Thank you for sharing these lovely flowers!

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

June, my life probably could not flourish without some messy abandonment! Your roses, all your flowers, are really beautiful as your photos are too..Thanks for sharing such beauty..Happy Wednesday..Judy

Burlap Luxe said...

JUNE everything you said about to many pictures rings true with me as well...it's all the different angles you want to share. As for that first foto, it's breathtaking and worthy of a magazine cover.
I so love the grey weathered top the beautiful loosely laying roses are on...your gardens are the best on my blog list. I have a favorite of yours, that split-rail fencing with the use of facing it with old horse wire look. It's so euro chic, and adds private entry where need be, the grey raised beds what can I say, other then when do you have time to care for a home, a cottage studio and the gardens, shop, and take care of your daily life? It's all so I spiring to me SUPER WOMEN! :)

If there were an earthly garden of edan? We have found it here.

Take all, and share all, were never tire of your inspiring beauty.
I would love to see more of your romantic home.

Gorgeous as always, June! I always love seeing your beautiful posts.


Half-heard in the Stillness said...

Dear June, they're so lovely, such a pale gorgeous treat for our senses, I bet their fragrance wafts in great waves across your beautiful garden. They are so feminine I think. They fill me with thoughts of sunny summer days, when we were children and everything was a miracle to be experienced with wonder!

Hugs dear June, hope all is well with you?
I'm trying to learn to live with a new symptom...well new, it arrived out of the blue in April.
The coffee pots on.... Pop over! :)))))
