Exquisite roses!And, don't you just love the Jennifer Warnes album! Leonard Cohen is a favorite of mine and Ms. Warnes version of Song of Bernadette is so gorgeous!
Pamela, yes! I just got it today and especially love Song of Bernadette. :)
Willow: Loved your roses, very nicely captured.
Great pictures of the rose's. Did you take these yourself? If you did, very nice!
What absolutely gorgeous roses. I can almost smell them.
Beautiful. You'd enjoy my roses too.
My mother is a great lover of roses. I will have to remember the name of this one. Mother isn't easy to buy gifts for and this beautiful rose would be the perfect thing. Your pictures are really good.
You have the touch!
OH that rose is beautiful! I've been admiring the shot from the sidebar...

Those roses are stunning, and your photos of them are amazing, too. They're such an elegant, delicate color. Must be beautiful in person.

Simon, I love that Karen Blixen uses lines from this Housman poem for a toast in the film "Out of Africa".
Daryl, sorry for the sneezes. I should have posted smaller pix. ;)
Must be poems and flowers day!I simply adored Leonard Cohen in 1968 -I was in art school and bicycled round town singing Suzanne to myself.Happy week!
Thanks for your visit to my blog Brookville Daily Photo this morning. I hope you enjoyed my post today showing the honey bee and the hollyhock flower. I saw a special last night about the disappearance of honey bees and it is sad to think that most of the fruit, nuts and vegetables we eat would disappear with them. So governments are busy trying to find the culprit before it is too late and one huge problem is the use of insecticides. Anyway, I wanted you to know I was here to repay your visit and comment with one of my own. Kind of like "Kilroy" was here... remember those drawings everyone used to make?I enjoyed reading your blog post for today and I thought the photography was good too. Your roses are doubles, I think that's what they call them, or maybe T-roses. Mine are all gone except one. It comes from the late 1700s and has been keep growing through clones since then. It is a simple rose that looks almost like any daisy flower with a few flat petals rounded on the end. Nothing bothers it except last year's Japanese Beetles. Otherwise it is pest free and disease free. I think all modern roses come from this kind of rose line or heritage and each new type breeds in some kink that needs fixing from time to time. I never saw an aphid on this rose but aphids lived and bred and died slobbering rose juices on the roses I used to grow.So I never use insecticides and don't have a need for them.
Thanks Abe aka Kilroy, I just took them with my little HP Photosmart point and click. I would have tons of fun with a fancy lens like yours!It is too scary to think we could eliminate the honey bee and the chain reaction it would cause.I really like this particular Eden rose. It is very hardy and never any problems with those rose juice slobbering aphids.
the color of this rose is so nice. it makes me think of my anut corrinne's rose garden. she would always wear a fresh rose from her garden in her hair.
Absolutely fantstic roses! Is one "New Dawn?"
mmm, this variety of rose is called "Eden" and it's my very favorite rose.
The color is so subtle and delicate - the perfect rose!
