The Beauty of Flowers

This rose is Alchemist.  I bought it from Antique Rose Emporium in Texas.  It has truly been spectacular...and has bloomed for about 6 weeks....very fragrant and absolutely one of my all time favorites....

There is nothing on earth that is prettier to me than flowers...Just imagine that our Creator made them just for us to enjoy the beauty...such extravagance...such love....such creativity...Have you ever thought about how many different flowers there are? why do we try to copy someone else with our lives?  that also is unfathomable.....Be who you are meant to be.  Be Yourself!

Come on in and I will show you a few more roses....

This is Graham Thomas.....

and Julia Child

they are both similar but oh so different....both of them yellow but different fragrances and different plant styles..

 now the daylilies.I just cannot get enough of them...and yellow seems to be the color of my garden right now...

The blue of batchelor buttons is a nice complimentary color in the garden........and so is my companion Bo...

I am joining in the fun at   Clever Chicks Blog Hop

  1. Terrific photography! You have such a bounty of flowers...glorious. And you're right! Who can choose which is the greatest? Together they are beyond marvelous and individually so very unique. I really wanted to lie down in one of those looked soft and cozy and perhaps edible. Ha!
