Thorny beauties! Lovely to look at. You must have had some wonderful weather of late!

Haley is doing very well. She's pretty much back to her "old" self...so we're very grateful! Thank you for caring!

The roses are exquisite in that soft pink and so gracefully adorning the wall and the wrought iron fence.

Have a wonderful weekend, mon amie!

Lovely fence decorations.

Bob Crowe said...

A perfect cascade. I imagine the roses getting thicker and thicker, then raining onto the ground.

SRQ said...

Lovely. I particularly like the ones by the fence.

Woody said...

Gorgeous.

We had 2 rose bushes in our yard where I grew up. No one paid any attention to them or tended to them, yet they always produced the largest, most amazing smelling roses I've ever experienced.

Randy said...

Bet they smelled great too.

Regina K said...

Those look like English Roses and I would expect a great fragrance. Beautiful!

Diane said...

They always have to be sniffed too. xxxx

I can practically smell the scented air.

This time of the year which is coming to an end over here.

On est vraiment gâtés cette année, le beau temps est propice aux roses. Je les aime grimpantes et généreuses comme celle du dessus, un peu chiffonées et faisant roses anciennes comme celle du dessus et aussi parfumées. Celel du dessus était-elle parfumée ?

I love roses and these are beautiful. The second photo with the iron fence contrasting with the soft pink and delicacy of the roses is terrific.

Birdman said...

I smell the fragrance even now.

Tammie Lee said...

so pretty and I bet it smelled good too.

I think your title is The Season of Roses but can't say for sure since I don't read French. I took one year of Spanish in High school about 60 years ago and all the languages are similar - French, Spanish, Latin.

I like the photography very much.

What is the name of your camera?

I like the way it registers the colors.

Oh, I was just noticing the roses today while out walking! I saw the first one about a week ago, and now they are everywhere! Yours are lovely, Ciel!

VP said...

I always try to shoot some roses, but I am rarely satisfied with my work...

Jack said...

I love roses, too, but it is a month too early for roses in Hartford. Rose Weekend at Elizabeth Park is June 17 - 19 this year.

Kaori said...

I imagine the scent is lovely as your photo! :D

Too pretty! I love the trailing roses and the roses with the railing. So beautiful. Reminds me of a country house.

Stephanie said...

Very lovely roses.
My brother-in-law just got back from a trip to Versailles and Paris. One of his photos had the Bernar Venet sculpture and I said I saw it before he did! ha!
