First Blooms...

When I returned home from my trip I found several of the rose bushes in full bloom. Roses are my very favorite flower.

I want to dedicate these roses to all of my blogging friends. I have met so many wonderful people through blogging and you bring joy to my world each day. I truly appreciate the grace and beauty that you have brought to my life...just like the roses in my garden:)

Roses are my favorite flower also! We won't see them for quite a while yet around here, so I really appreciate you sharing the pictures. I can almost smell them!

Those are so lovely. I've tried several times to grow climbing roses, but with no luck. Those pictures make me want to try again.

Thank you for your words of dedication. I am so happy to have met you blogging, I smile and feel refreshed every time I click into your blog.

Such beautiful flowers lie just outside your doorstep.
As mine are still a month or two away I shall linger here awhile to partake of their beauty.
Hope this note finds you well and enjoying the blooms of Spring.

Kim, the roses are just beautiful and I slowly scrolled down so that I may enjoy each and every one. And each time I thought that I had found the most lovely, the next one was even better. The precious rosebud got my vote though. And then your little dedication!! It just brought tears to my eyes, you worded it so wonderfully, and it just says everythign that I feel too about blogging!! bless you my friend, and a big hug from way over here coming your way for such a lovely, lovely post!!
