Thought for the Weekend

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.  

[Hal Borland]

As follow-up to the previous post, here you can compare the size of some of the roses. The pink on the left is Duchesse De Brabant,  the cream-colored roses in the center are Alister Stella Gray, the white in the background is Ducher and the red is Don Juan


  1. Wow, I am looking forward to seeing more of your roses! These are a wonderful sight for dreary winter weary eyes!

  2. Wow - I didn't realize Duchesse had such big blooms! I'm going to have to find a spot for her in my garden!

  3. /laughs/ that's it, I don't have any other roses so far. I plan on adding two more, but have to find a place for them first.

  4. oh yes, the Duchesse has wonderful rose blooms, the Belinda's Dream flowers are even a little larger.

  5. I love the gorgeous colors and fullness in that bouquet! Now, I have even more to look forward to in spring.

  6. Oh, roses (sigh), are there any flowers more beautiful than roses? I must admit I do have a special passion for roses. My 8 different roses are far from enough, every time I see another, I feel I need to have that one too!

    I am definitely adding a cream or white rose this year, and perhaps another red; I must have another fragrant one, so if I can combine the two then even better, and I would like another climber, and a....OK, OK, you get the picture :-)
    Your photo is lovely, an inspiration, can't wait for spring!

  7. Roses are addicting, aren't they? ;-)
    one or two are just not enough. I have three more on my wishlist at the moment.
