Hi Folks ~ Hope you are all having a lovely start to this month of February. Today was a gorgeous day. Yesterday was too and I was outside working up a small sweat. The a.c. is on. Tomorrow it is supposed to get up to 80.
This morning my heart was tugged on for roses once again. This time by Connie's blog, Hartwood Roses, and by a new blog I'm following, les roses du jardin secret.
Last year Connie offered up some of her baby roses for sale, and I asked her if she'd do a trade for one of my needleworked pieces, and she said yes. The two roses below are the ones I got. They both are sweet and scented. They are just starting to really take off.

This first one is a seedling called 'Cemetery Rose'.
From a cemetery in CA. It has a sweet, delicate scent.
This one is called 'Ruth's White Wavy leafed rose'. This has a bit heavier scent. Aaaahh!!!
Connie is a 'serious' rose grower, among other things. She inspires me in many ways.
Here's a link about her.
I went out into my humble cottage gardens the other day and took some pics of roses that are blooming right now.
God encourages me in many ways. Sometimes I just need to be still and know that He IS, and trust Him completely.
Enjoy each day you are blessed with,
