Who doesn't love roses? I do now but when I was young and moved into my first home I ripped out all the rose bushes because I hated roses! I replaced them with junipers! Ugh...JUNIPERS! It's really amazing how much our tastes can change over the years!
Now I love roses... especially pink roses! I'm really not into red roses at all! Pink, peach, white, yellow, lavender... really any color rose except red roses.
Pink by far is my favorite!
...but you could probably have guessed that!
Roses and hydrangeas are my favorite flowers! Lilacs are a close third though! My lilac bush is filled with buds and next month I should have gorgeous lilac bouquets to share with you! That excites me...it's nice when you can get excited over little things like that!
Roses, hydrangeas and seashells... perfection in my eyes!
I'll take the fluffy old English roses over the perfect tea roses any day. The fuller and fluffier they are the better!
although these store-bought roses are pretty too!
I know I've mentioned it before...the Eden Rose is my favorite rose! My Eden Rose bush in my back patio is leafing out right now! Hopefully it will be full of blooms in a few months! It blooms about 3 or 4 times throughout the spring, summer and fall but the first bloom is always the best, with the biggest blooms!
I have so many photos of my Eden roses over the years!
Some more store-bought roses above in my favorite old pitcher I found on ebay years ago... a pitcher that I spent more money on than I wanted to but I fell in love with it. Sometimes you just have to splurge!
and a homegrown bouquet in a simple mason jar.
Soon my Eden rose bush will be blooming like this again! I think this photo was taken the second year I had it. It gets bigger and more full of blooms every year!
After looking at these old photos of all my roses throughout the years I've been blogging has me really excited to see the blooms again!
