Beautiful Flower

At the beginning of the year, I told you that I wanted to buy more flowers for myself this year.  Well, it's time, and I just bought another bouquet.  You all know how much I love red roses, but there is another rose that is a favorite of mine - the pink rose.  The color is beautiful, they remind me of spring, and they brighten up the house.

"I'd rather have roses
on my table
than diamonds
on my neck."

~Emma Goldman

"Won't you come into the garden?
I would like my roses to see you."

~Richard B Sheridan

Do you have a favorite color of rose?

The roses are beautiful. It would be hard for me to pick just one color..I love them all! yesterday, I bought myself two rosebushes..Knockout roses.
One is yellow, and the other is pink. I already have a red one.The Knockout rose is very hardy and easy to grow. Perfect for me!!

Sheri I love roses too.
Yours are beautiful and they add that extra-special something to our homes.
I love just about any colour of rose, but pink, white and yellow would be my favourites.
Bless you!

First of all, thank you for your kind words today. I cannot believe the amount of love and sweetness that abounds in comments! You like my yellow themed header? I have recently become smitten with YELLOW, a color I never really considered. Roses....let's see. I just got a bouquet from a student this week of RED roses. They are so gorgeous. But I have to say that PINK and white are my favorites, and they were my choice for my wedding bouquet. THEY SMELL LIKE RASPERRIES!

How are you today? Settling in?

It is gray and cool here, but next week I am on spring break the ENTIRE WEEK! I am enjoying myself so much so far.

Bises ma belle! Anita

Elaine said...

Such a pretty bouquet of roses.. I often buy myself fresh flowers..

andrea@townandprairie said...

YES!!! YELLOW!!! I buy fresh flowers from Aldi's all the time... they are so cheap and last all week long on our kitchen table! Well worth the three dollars!

Ivy and Elephants said...

I once received a bouquet that was the most gorgeous orangey yellow.
The color was so rich a vibrant, they were my absolute favorite.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful bouquet with us. Ahhh! smell the roses.

C'est moi Claudette said...

Well I'm a peony fan myself. I just can't get enough of them in the summer. Ours are short lived, but I admire them every single day while I can. Their smell is breath taking. I truly need to find a perfume with peonies as the main ingredient.
On a mission now... See what we do to each other Sheri?
If I had a choice I'd have diamonds, just like our sweet Audrey.
Hope you are all settled in.
Email me the details : )

Hi Sheri,
Thanks so much for coming by last week to wish me Happy Birthday, and tell me about your love of Ireland. We just put to rest our debate about going this May on one of those drive-yourself Castle tours that Dooley Tours puts out to tempt us!! But we're going for a long trip to France this summer, so we mustn't be greedy! I love that you're all settled in a new town and a new house and a new life! Isn't it exciting? I find it amazing that you keep up with so much during a move! I was off for two weeks due a computer internet blackout, but I'm back now, and here to see you and answer your question about roses...I love Pink, Like these beauties you share with us, and also Apricot ones!
Thanks, Sheri,

Doll in the Looking Glass said...

If I want color, I typically choose peach roses. But, white roses always seem so elegant.

Thanks for the lovely post.


Susannah said...

Beautiful photos!

And I think pink is my favourite colour for roses, though I have a beautiful orange one growing in my garden that has such a wonderful scent that I would have to say orange too! :-)

Thanks for visiting me, it is good to meet you.

Your roses are beautiful, I also love them in pink, but white is my favourite too.

Have a nice evening,


Marcia said...

You know I'm loving the quotes more than the roses, don't you? :) But the roses are gorgeous too. Love the pink ones and yellow too.
Thank you for the birthday wishes for my april fool. ;)
Enjoy your day.

Tea at Weasel's said...

Gorgeous roses.... A lovely friend of mine bought me thirty pink, red and white roses for my thirtieth birthday and they brightened my kitchen up and made me smile everytime I looked at them... after seeing your post I am going to go out tomorrow and buy myself some more flowers to brighten my home!

Thank you also for your lovely comment and birthday wishes xx

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Sheri,

I love your pretty pink roses and isn't it a real treat to buy yourself some when you are out shopping.
I often do that too.
I love all colours, but I think my favourite is pale pink.

Happy week

karen - Simply Inspired said...

thank you.

Barbe @ Beez Rental Designs said...

Hi, I'm a new follower. I'm loving your blog, especially the garden scenes and flowers. My favorite rose is a deep yellow! I also love the red so deep and velvety it almost looks black! Roses are definitely my flower and they are blooming all around my apt complex!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Barbara said...

When you mentioned your Rose post, I had to come over. Oh... but these are beautiful too, I love Roses no matter what their color is!

Emma's Rose quote is great, and I probably will use it again.

Have a wonderful weekend.
