Breathe


What is it about a rose 
that makes you want to



climb into its soft fragrance



and smile.

(I think the honey bees know!)

Actually honeybees visit many of my flowers, but rarely my roses. But the fragrance and delicate petals are addictive to me! Great photos.

Smiling, this made me think of my childhood when I tried making perfume from rose petals.

I am enjoying a dozen that I got for Mother's Day. I bury my nose in one or more every time I pass by them. These are exquisite shots.

Are your roses blooming already? One of my rose bushes is finally leafed out...the newest one is getting there; two others evidently died over the winter. I'm shopping for two new ones this week. The ring of color on your rose is so beautiful.

Barbara said...

Nothing as beautiful as a rose, or as heavenly as the fragrance. The first bloom of my little miniature bush popped up today. Yay!
