In The Garden With My Apple Tree

I love the apple blossoms. All the apple blossoms are gone and in there place are lots of apples.

Beautiful apples but have no idea what kind. The apple tree was here when we moved in.

This is a photo of my Sentimental rose bud. This rose blooms so fast it's hard to catch 
 it as a bud. I've got a glimpse here and some following photos of this unique rose.

This is my pink rose bud that has the ruffles.

This is a look at my coral rose. It's the same rose as in my header looking quite
 different but still beautiful. 

I can see all of these roses from my kitchen window and I can't bear to cut them and
bring them into the house. They are so lovely to look at in the garden. I planted them
there on purpose so I would have something beautiful to look at every morning. In
our weather they bloom almost all year round. These are in the top five greatest joys
 of my life. Behind God, mon amour, my family and my friends.

I'm linking with How Sweet The Sound for Pink Saturday

What a wonderful sight out your kitchen window!! Just heavenly, I probably couldn't cut them either.

All year round! Fantastic! I hate cutting our roses too. We don't have many and I want them to last as long as possible. Your sentimental rose reminds me of our "George Burns" which didn't make it through a hard freeze last winter. I need to order a new one. Happy PS!

How gorgeous, it's almost as if I could touch them, Ms. Sizzle. I didn't even think about it being apple blossom time--I miss those wonderful orchards.

Lovely that you get such joy from something that you arranged outside your kitchen window.
And those apples look fantastic. They wouldn't last long at the Beach House as my kiddos adore them.

Beautiful pictures. I can't stop myself from cutting my roses and bring the sweet smells inside:) I would plant 10 more bushes if I had the space. Your posts always make me want more.

They are beautiful! I love looking out my kitchen window and seeing my garden, although I don't have beautiful roses like yours, it still just brings me a bit of joy as I do dishes. :)
Have a wondeful week!
