Color In My Spring Garden

My coral rose this week. This rose looks surreal when photographed.
These are photos I took in my garden this week. Enjoy.
Can you see the raindrops?

I couldn't resist I tweaked it.

You take the most stunning photos of roses, Susan. I can see the rain, I can see the life. WHAT BEAUTY! Anita

They must love the CA climate as they always look stunning. They grow in Sydney but not that well as it's too humid and not cold enough in Winter. They truly are lovely.
Have a great weekend

Oh my, Susan. These photos are just beautiful! We're still seeing white snow or brown grass in Canada but there's hope, lol.
Thank you for sharing those - those vibrant colours just lit up my day!

Absolutely gorgeous!! I love that purple sage. I have a Russian sage plant in my garden that is purple too.

Awww! Such beauty in all the spring flowering here, I am looking forward to the buds my bushes have hope they bloom before a chill sets in again. We get these late spring rains with the chill of ice here on the desert.

Now here is how you can Pre-order, I have a link on my site it's a long link, click onto it and you can order there.
If not it will be on most news stands, and your local retailing book stores.

Thank you dear for taking the time to share with me your beautiful thoughts.

How I love that TWEAK on the blue rose! My favorite color for a flower!

Dearest Susan, I will be blogging, but only once a month now. Too many hours of love go into a post, for a dwindling audience who I am not sure even cares anymore. But I will continue to visit, and every time your new post goes up and my email alerts me, I am always here.

Blogging has been the best thing that's happened to me to develop my dormant creativity. It has also helped me make friends in another dimension that even "real" life has not offered. I can't leave that. But for now, I need a break.

THANK YOU FOR COMING OVER! Anita

Your roses are so vivid and beautiful! We came home to aphids on the buds. I know you take photos in shops the way I do. At Lauriannas there was a lady working each room, and one of her main tasks was keeping folks from taking pictures! Thanks for your sympathy! ;0)
