Come Smell The Roses






Welcome Sweet Pink Loving Peeps! Here is the way to Beverly's and all the fun and amazing blogs that love PINK as much as I do.....Be sure and leave Beverly a comment so she will know how much you enjoy this venue! Thank You Beverly! We just LOVE you!

Finally! The roses are blooming and the rose that holds the key to my heart is Eden. We have had a chilly and wet Spring and beginning to Summer and without the six hours of sun she loves, she has been taking her sweet time to burst forth, but here she is. Isn't she gorgeous?

Even though I use a Bayer product for my roses that is supposed to discourage all buggies, with all the wet we have them anyway. So, they are not all absolutely perfect, there is a little nibble hole here and there, but then, that is just Nature at work! Right?



Below are my hardy and pretty landscape roses.....never any bugs and they survive any weather, it seems. They just grow and bloom and make Mama happy!

I hope you enjoyed some of my roses!

I am planning my first ever GIVE A WAY! I would have had one long ago, but I had to figure out how make the little button for you all to take back to your blogs....so, When I get to 325 followers I will celebrate my first one....stay tuned!

Have a very Rosy Pink Saturday!
Love To You All!
Jil

Gorgeous roses! What a delightful pink, today! My knock-outs were knocked-out by a terrible wind storm about a week or so ago. I shall have to post before and after shots. Hope they come back as nice as yours!
Now - as to that nifty little button thingy you figured out - want to let me in on the secret?
Joy!

I'm swooning here, Jil! Your roses are gorgeous and the ones close to the ground are so plentiful, you must be ecstatic! Our Spring and now our Summer have both been wet and cold which is holding up the blooms at my place. But they are coming, slowly! I guess we will have to really 'stop and smell the roses' when we can this year! Happy Pink Saturday, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Jil, the roses look so dark green and healthy and so pink and pretty. The deer have nibbled on mine...even the pink forever roses aren't blooming. I love the deer but do wish they would not eat my flowers. Happy happy Pink Saturday. xo

Happy Pink Saturday Jil Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share today. I could smell your roses clear out here in Phoenix. Your Eden rose is both fragrant and gorgeous all wrapped up in one. Love the coloring, so pretty. What Bayer product do you use? I need to get some on mine as well.

Thank you sweet friend for letting me stroll along in the gardens today. I so enjoyed myself. I look forward to seeing your giveaway.

Have a beautiful Pink Saturday and a wonderful weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Your roses are SOOOOOO gorgeous! It is so blasted hot here, I wonder if I could grow roses like that. Hmmmm. You think they could handle 110 degrees?

Mary ♥ Mur said...


oh.. so nice post.)
Love your blog.))

I now spend a survey of bloggers with such questions.
1. Why did you create a blog?
2. For whom you taking him? Want to be popular?
3. How long will it keep going?
