Stop and Smell The Roses

This is the last of my summer roses.  I have a feeling that they will only bloom for another month.  When I saw the color I thought it was very unique - a combination of pink and coral.  They stand in my front yard and I smile every time I pass them.

Hi Sheri:
The color of that rose is breahtakingly beautiful. I have a bush in my garden that resembles that color and right now my entire rose garden is in bloom. I am afraid it is the last summer bloom! I never fail to clip a few to bring inside.

Hi Sheri,

The roses are so beautiful and what a lovely shade of coral/pink and would make me smile seeing them too.
The quote is great and so true.

Hope you are enjoying the weekend

Hi Sheri, Your rose blooms are lovely and giving a beautiful show to end summer. Ours will bloom nearly to Christmas here. Love that little verse you share too. I also love your header and meant to tell you that in my last visit.
Have a enjoyable holiday weekend my friend. Happy Labor Day.
XOXO Celestina Marie

Lovely color indeed.
And the exquisiteness of the petals' shape and frill is nothing of less importance.
The ones I have blooming (you can see them at my NR blog) have a more dark color but I always feel blessed witnessing their beauty.
Thank you for sharing your roses, your beauty and your kindness!

Hi Sheri
How very kind of you to stop in for a visit.. Oh I am so happy you enjoyed little Bebe and Bink! I did not know Jess loved all things small.
I would love to have a visit from her..
Thank you so much for your kind thoughts.
Blessings,
Penny

Beautiful Sheri,

You do NOT know how much your recent comments from yesterday mean to me...they came at a very timely moment. Struggling with change, a lull in sales and confusion about my future, just knowing that I am of some importance to anyone is a great comfort. Thank you. The trick is remembering that my worth is not summed up in how many sales I make but in what I give away from my life. THANK YOU. Peace and beauty to you and the girls, Anita

My roses have suffered badly from the strong winds and heavy rain storms we have had we,so it was a pleasure to see yours. I to love the quote.

I also love roses and their beautiful smell. Each time I pass along my roses, I have to put my nose in their flower head. They are blooming for the second time now and I enjoy it so much!

Dear Sheri,

Thanks for visiting me today and I just want to send my love to you today.
Birthdays are always a special time to remember our loved ones who are no longer with us. Thoughts are with you.

Beautiful rose. Seems like I wait all year and have such a short season to really enjoy them. I guess it is true that we need to stop and smell the roses....while they are here. Hope that you are having a nice summer...mine has been a little busier than I'd like. Looking for a little slower Fall and Winter season. ((hugs))

Dear Sheri,
Your roses are so beautiful. I love that special color and I bet the fragrance is just divine.

Hi Sheri!
It was so great hearing from you! I have been thinking about you quite a bit. I am back in blog land again after a crazy summer. We are part of the Waldo Canyon fire so what an interesting past several months it had been. Thank you for sharing your beautiful roses with us. Such a breath of fresh air in the simple things we can take for gradit.

Hi Sheri,
Thank you so much for coming over for a visit.. Your notes always leave me with a happy heart. I don't know if Jess noticed, but she can still view Bebe with her mask, it is right below my current post.. I am happy she enjoyed Breakfast at Tiffacheese.
Blessings,
Penny
