Just a Perfect Rose

I just had to share these pictures with you. You can almost smell the fragrance. This is the first rose this year. Usually, in Phoenix, we would be cutting the bushes way back. But I didn't this year and they are already blooming. I may just see what happens....
Have a lovely weekend!

What a beautiful rose, Liz! I'll bet you'll be having some soon! Well, if we're gonna wash those dirty dishes I just have to daydream a bit! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Wow! It is amazing how in the US one person is smelling roses and another cannot get out of her front door for the snow. Your rose is so beautiful.

Very pretty rose! Everytime I try to grow roses, I kill them! I stick with pansy's and petunia's, I can't kill them. lol

Beautiful beautiful rose!! Wow!!! It's just absolutely beautiful!! I love those roses, and that is a terrific photograph!!!! Isn't it so hard to leave them on the bush? I always want to cut mine and bring them in, but want them on the bush too!!!! LOL Guess I need a rose garden in the back just for cutting!! Enjoy your day!!
Hugs, Teresa
