Everything’s Coming Up Roses!

I know, the titles a little cliché, but I couldn’t resist!
Every thing is coming up roses lately it seems!

The roses in my yard are in bloom and just gorgeous this year. I’ve been working with some beautiful Helga Piaget roses for a wedding last weekend, and several other beautiful varieties in my Advanced Floral Design class. And the best of all is….it’s Romantic Roses for Pink Friday this week! We’ll be offering a wonderful selection of rose themed products as well as discounting many of our current rose products. We’ll be sending a newsletter with a special offer and some sneak peeks just for our mailing list, so if your not signed up yet, head on over to Forget Me Not Dreams and sign up!

If I wished and wished with all my might, perhaps those beautiful roses would grow in my yard to! Very nice!

What is the name of that pink rose hedge? I have been looking for a low grower for my parking strip. That is gorgeous!!
Thanks for your comment on my blog. At every veteran's day parade I am reduced to a bawling mess. I am glad it is not only me who tears up (oh heck, I really sob).
I hope Karen is doing okay...send her our love, okay?

Ah the sweet rose!! Eileen, you surely have a green thumb. It sure brings joy to our day to visually see your roses....I only wish we could "smell the roses" too. Thank you for the beautiful visuals. Lots of pink hugs!!

You have such a beautiful garden. I love all the pink roses, and wished I was there to make them into a pink rose wreath! ;)
