Outdoor Wednesday

This is my first Outdoor Wednesday post! Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.

Our winter weather has been quite warm this year causing the plants to think it's Spring! I couldn't believe the roses were blooming like this and just had to take a picture. The yellow rose is peeping out of a scented geranium bush. It's a Henry Fonda rose. I think the English roses are Evelyn and Geoff Hamilton.


Please visit Susan's blog for the links to other Outdoor Wednesday participants.

Enjoy!

Such beautiful roses. They are all gorgeous, but being from Texas I'm partial to the yellow one!

Diane, welcome to Outdoor Wednesday! Your English Roses are beautiful! I have some in my yard too...and I miss them. I probably won't see a bloom until May on them (sigh)....so I am LOVING the photos of yours!

Hi Diane, What beautiful roses! Oh I can't wait until spring.

Thanks for the info on the shower door. Sherry will be reading the comments so she will appreciate the info.

Market is open to people who own interior/gift shops or are interior decorators. You have to order off the showroom floors and most of the time you have to order in large quantitys and have it shipped in. If I could buy it off the floor, there is no doubt I would be in alot of debt.lol! Kristen

Diane...your roses are beautiful! It is impossible for me to grow them as my yard is shrouded by walnut trees. :-(

Thank you for sharing!

Diane, I love roses too! Whether a bud, a full bloom, or when they are withering, they are a true picture of how life is beautiful at any stage. I'm sure if they look this beautiful now, they must be totally rockin in the summer... Enjoyed your post! Please stop by for a visit today! ~CC of catherinesteacups.blogspot.com

My roses don't look that beautiful--in the Summer!!! I have frozen sticks right this minute where rose bushes will be in a few months--and I can hardly wait!

I love your roses! Those are my favorite flower. I have about 4 various ones right now...and for now they are sleeping! I planted a growing vine by my bedroom window and placed an arch there..hoping I could smell the fragrance-i havent yet but they do grow very nicely and are so pretty to look at.

Ann, I live in N California. It's been in the 70's here lately, however it's 54 & overcast today, so we may be heading back to our normal winter weather. ♥ Diane

Diane, It is Kara's Cupcakes and they have a location in Santana Row by the health club and one in the Palo Alto Town and Country Village on the side facing El Camino next to Sur La Table.

p.s. the vanilla is a clear winner for flavors.

Michelle said...

How beautiful, Diane! Those roses look so hearty!

Growing roses is an art form, which you have mastered. How lovely the fragrance must be.

Hi Diane. I so glad you came by my blog. I really like Outdoor Wednesday. I too have wondered where those chickens have been all this time.

I think they must come out in the mornings while I am at work.

My roses always die. I'm usually pretty good with plants but not roses. Maybe you can give me some tips.
