Happy New Year

Out with the old and in with the new.

All these rose photos were taken two weeks before Christmas and before
the first big rainfall. If you don't see roses bloom in December or
 January here they are to enjoy.

Happy New Year to everyone! I hope your new year
is filled with all your heart desires.

I'm linking with The house in the Roses for Show Off Your Cottage Monday

I am very happy to see you come by last night! I was so tired I could not even see my computer screen, or else I would have come earlier. I wonder why you were unable to put an item into your cart? Which item were you looking at to purchase? Maybe I did something wrong?

I am very flattered that you tried several times! Oh, do let me know. I must check to see if I did something wrong. I published everything like the way I am supposed to; oh, now I am thinking about it!!!

Enjoy this beautiful day; it is my last day before I go back to school and teach tomorrow!

Many thanks, Anita

I wonder why you are unable to purchase the print and tags? I just got an order for the tags, so I don't think there is a problem with the item post.....BUT I WILL SAVE a castle print and tags for you, most definitely! I do hope you can get this resolved, but yes, I will save them for you and when you are able, just press that button!

THANK YOU for looking into that! Have a fine day! Anita

But I do have them set aside for you when you are able. Thanks so much for letting me know!!! Anita

Glad you are back too as I missed you as well.

Amazing that you have such beauty in Winter. I guess that's why CA is so famous.

Here's to a wonderful 2012 for you.

Happy New Year!! It's always lovely to see beautiful roses. It feels like spring will be early this year. But I'm probably just ready for it already!
