My First Rose Bouquet This Spring

We might have odd weather this year, but apparently the roses really liked it!!! I have two rose bushes in my backyard and they just started blooming a few days ago…………………
ROSES may 2011 002 

The fragrance from these ruffled beauties is intoxicating.

The Le Creuset pitcher was a gift from my middle son and his wife, and the rose bush was a gift from my oldest son and his wife. I would say looking at this bouquet makes me pretty happy!!!

I am not exactly sure what the name of this beauty is, but I think it is French Lace. If someone knows please feel free to tell me in a comment.

I just had to share these beauties with you all!! I hope you enjoyed my first rose bouquet from my yard!!! I wish you could smell the fragrance!!

Beautiful, Kathysue! The pitcher and the roses are the perfect combination. Blooming roses are one of the best things about spring and combined with the beautiful pitcher makes it sweet perfection. I can imagine the smile on your face each time you look at it.

Oh, those are stunning. Roses hold such special meaning for me as I remember being in my grandmother's rose garden. It was such a special part of my upbringing. How beautiful to have those in your own yard.

Gorgeous blooms! I'm so jealous that your roses are in full bloom already. We're finally getting some spring color around here. Love the pink against the green of the pitcher! Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely beautiful Kathysue! You and your roses-haha! Not sure if it's French Lace--a little too pink, but I could be wrong. Either way, they are perfect. Mine are a riot of blooms right now. Lots of white Icebergs and a wall of Cecile Brunner roses. Their scent is in the air! xo Delores
