More Roses

I had a moment to myself this morning and went outside to find some roses to photograph. Today was watering day, so they were still covered with water droplets - everything looked really refreshed and healthy. The peachy/pink rose is one of my favorites for spring since the color is so soft and pretty. Once it is super hot here (in the 100's), this one starts looking quite faded, so I try to enjoy it as much as I can now!

The yellow rose is a David Austin Golden Celebration, which was a gift to me from my parents when I turned 30. Two years later and it is finally really blooming! My experience with shrub roses is limited since I grew up with hybrid teas, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. They look gorgeous when they are all in bloom!

As I was poking around, I found a ladybug making a meal of another bug, so I thought I'd share that, too. We put out two praying mantis casings, too, so I should have some praying mantis photos before too long. Yay for good bugs!


  1. Yellow roses are my all time favorite rose! carried them on my wedding day! I would plop right down in your yard and not leave your flowers look so amazing!

  2. I wish I had watering days now. It's still frosty and freezing where I live. These are so beautiful.

  3. SO FUN! I love that your roses are blooming - i am posting today on my first 2 blooms of roses. I think this week and next week - we'll be loaded with roses...YAY FOR SPRING! :) PS - can we talk about your adorable herb bouquet? SO CUTE! LOVE that you're a blogger. :)
