Thoughts of Spring

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Our winter so far has not been all that bad, but it is still winter.  Seed catalogs have started to arrive, which lead to thoughts of Spring.  Pictures of our roses also give rise to thoughts of Spring.  This picture of Sweetness Rose was taken last May.

Sweetness is a perfect name for this beauty.
It brightened my day- thanks George.

Linda said...

That rose appears to be well named. You've developed quite a talent, not only for growing these beauties, but for photographing them.

Ah Spring! And seed catalogs--we have some too. We have been having freezing fog for the past 3-4 days and it is getting downright boring. I want some sunshine but next will be rain. It will be better than icy fog. MB

Lovely capture! The droplets sticks to it are fascinating.

Lrong Lim said...

Beautiful rose George BUT I have to be careful about getting to enthusiastic about flower pictures right now. Its way to early for spring fever to set in here in the Northland....:)

On this very cold ady it's a welcome sought.

Photo Cache said...

oh that's an award winning bloom if i may say so.

Linda said...

The photo of the rose with the droplets of water is beautiful, George. The colour is so delicate and the name is just right. It's the sort of rose you would like to have in a special bouquet, but I'm sure it looks even better growing in your garden. Our thoughts do indeed turn to warmer weather and the joys of Spring and Summer gardening.

When seed catalogs start to arrive I feel invigorated! Spring IS coming, really it is. :)

Amelia said...
