The bonus is they all have a beautiful perfume.

Happy days.

Gosh Bev, so beautiful. Cant believe you have them blooming already, shows how good your climate must be. Do you do a heavy winter prune on your roses??

Hello Bev,
Beautiful roses. Love when they have fragrance too. I'm thinking of removing one or two of my roses and replacing them with others that may do better in the summer.
I'm glad you like the sunflower photos. It was fun to see what would come up from the blend mix of seeds.
Happy gardening Bev.
Blessings!

P.S. Love your new photo at the top of your blog.

Oh golly Bev, I can almost smell those stunning blooms!
We had many rose bushes when we bought our house, but sold them all because we knew we would not be good at maintaining them, especially with all the winds we get...
take care Bev x
