Beautiful Roses

I call these my 'shabby chic' roses. 


They are from a little spindly rose bush on the hot West side of my house.


But they produce the most beautiful pink roses with the most wonderful fragrance.


I usually keep the buds on the little bar above my kitchen sink. But today I took them to my dresser to take some pretty photos.


The little book is a very old Bible that I found in a torn down house years ago.


And since we are enjoying the beautiful roses, let's sprinkle a little pixie dust to spread some joy.

I would like to dedicate this post to my sweet blog buddy, Donna at Cottage Days and Journeys.


To my beautiful friend, Donna.

I’m joining the Vintage Inspiration Link party HERE,

Linda Kay said...

Gosh, such beautiful pictures and setting for the photos. So many roses don't have an aroma, so good for you that this one actually does. Lovely.

Stephanie said...

Dearest Diane, you have warmed my heart with your lovely images...I can almost smell the sweet rose :)

Thank you so much for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs and blessings to you!

Hi Diane, I love your pretty roses and the color of them is just beautiful. Have a wonderful day and week!

Vicky Weaver said...

My mother used to grow the prettiest roses. I think she called them 'Don Juan'? They were gorgeous! Yours are appropriately tagged as 'Shabby Chic'. I can almost smell them! Have a lovely day my Florida neighbor!

Vicky Hunt said...

Your roses are so lovely! I would love to have a small bed of roses but just don't know if I could care for them properly. I see you are a fellow Floridian...:) Do you happen to know of any good climbing roses for Florida weather? I've been looking back over your past few posts and love your photos of the old church and also the river and alligator. I live just a few miles from the Suwannee River and the Gulf so lots of opportunities to be surrounded by God's creation here...:) Have a blessed day!

Your roses are pink perfection. They grow in harsh conditions and sometimes produce the greatest beauty, which sometimes happens with people too.

They are beautiful. I can smell them from here.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I can almost smell it- so pretty! I have the little cluster roses- I don't even know the name. I've never been able to grow any other type. Hope it is not too rainy at your place.

Vee said...

Just lovely...I love roses with scent and yours are really pretty.

Diane, your pink roses are so lovely, and what a pretty color. I bet you smile when you see them gracing your home. The old Bible is very special, and Yes, we need a little pixie dust in our lives once in awhile. :~)

Cranberry Morning said...

That little, spindly bush sure produces gorgeous roses, Diane! They look lovely displayed in your home. Hope you are having a beautiful day. xo

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

They are beautiful and they smell like real roses and they grow in Florida, which isn't a given when it comes to roses. You are a green thumb gardener! And a heck of a good photographer.

Sandra@Prairie Patch Quilts said...

Very pretty roses. I had them all over our yard when we lived in California; but now in North Dakota it is not so easy to grow them. So I will especially enjoy yours!

Scrappy quilter said...

Roses are my favorite flower and these ones are stunning!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Beautiful roses Diane. Lovely shade of pink and yes, so shabby chic too.
Hope you are getting my comments. The glitch continues!
Have a nice day. Hugs, cm

Stacey said...

Those are beautiful, Diane. They do have a shabby chic look about them and I can just imagine the wonderful smell.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

I can almost smell the roses - they are so pretty. We can't grow roses in our yard - much too shady and with the damp ocean air we tend to get black spot and tiny little critters that chew up the leaves. Some yards in town have roses but they have a hotter micro climate - so we just drive by on sunny days and enjoy the view and the scent.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

They are lovely and you can certainly be happy having a scented rosebush! Most of the hybrids are not :(

Benita Roberts said...

Beautiful roses!!

Sam I Am...... said...

I have roses but they have no scent...dang....that's what I wanted! LOL! Yours are beautiful and with a great smell you've hit the jackpot!

Donna Heber said...

Hi, I'm visiting from What's it Wednesday. Your roses are just gorgeous! Such a pretty color. I hope you will stop by for a visit.
