Everythings coming up Roses….

This time of the year is wonderful in the garden, after a long Winter the garden has revived itself with the first warm Spring days, and the first of my roses are in full bloom. I’ve just gone outside to do a quick count and I’m surprised I’ve now planted 200 rose bushes. From ramblers,standards and shrubs, hues of pinks, yellows, whites and reds,  border beauties, beautiful beds, old-fashioned charm and carpets of colour, even a solitary rose makes a great focal point in any garden.

I’ve always had a love for roses, and I have to admit there’s many a time when I wake up,stop and smell the roses, or take a wander in the garden and talk to them with my morning coffee….they’re so hardy and after last Winters snow it’s a miracle I didn’t lose any…every time a single new bloom appears, what ever the colour pink, white or red  for me roses symbolize love..

I think everyone has received a single rose at some time of their life…remember the time you received that rose it was given to you with love.

I couldn’t leave Australia without placing all my roses in a good home. A friend of mine adopted them, replanting them in his garden..It’s the first thing funny enough  I do when I  arrive at his home is take a walk around his property and admire the roses.

At a moments glance outside a window at my garden and the simple elegance of a single rose..hey! I know everythings coming up roses!

    “In her garden there is a large place for sentiment. Her garden of flowers is also her garden of thoughts and dreams. Her thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.”

    It is a lucky one who has had the opportunity to see her beautiful gardens. She most certainly is as beautiful on the inside as are her gardens.
