If you LOVE red!

 
My knock out roses are just blooming their pretty heads off!


They love these warm humid days of early summer!


Thanks to my sweet hubby, I have rose bushes all around my house and roses blooming year round!



And thanks to my sweet neighbors that have beautiful flowers planted right where we can enjoy them from our front windows!


They are the prettiest I've ever seen this year!


More of the flower garden....


and another rose mosaic!


Oh and if you are still in the mood for 'red'!


A few photos from the trailheads this week. We hiked on Limerock Road the other day and I love the photos at the trailhead. I have a smile on my face when I see my Jeep parked at a trailhead at the end of a hike.  We open the roof and snack on apple slices before we head home. Life is good!


Did you have a nice Mother's Day weekend?


(the reflection seen in the side window of the Jeep)

Hope you're having a nice week with lots to smile about!

I'm joining Angie for Mosaic Monday HERE .

Such beautiful photos. I love when all the flowers come into bloom. That's a pretty reflection in the window of your Jeep. The red color makes a lovely background for that beautiful display from Nature. Enjoy your day, hugs, Edna B.

Well, I saw your title "if you love red" on my side bar, and came right over. Then, I saw your wonderful red roses! Oh my, they are blooming beautifully. That is such a pretty picture with the one single rose and the words "friends are the roses of life." Yes, I can imagine you seeing your red jeep from far away and smiling after taking a long hike. I always have to stop for red flowers and red birds. There's just something about them. What a lovely post, Diane. Have a great week!

Well, I do love flowers. They put a bow on nature for sure.

Inger said...

I loved everything here.I hope you are enjoying your red Jeep. I guess they don't come in lavender, smiles... Thanks for your comment on my patience or lack thereof post. We can all learn from each other. Today, I learned about walking onions on a blog. Have a beautiful day.

I love knock out roses. They are so easy to care for. Beautiful flower in your neighbors garden.

Wow to the flowers, and Jeep. It is difficult to admire many blooms when a Jeep is around.

Red is my favorite color.
We had a lot of knock out roses in our yard when we lived in town. They were easy to grow even here!!
Your neighbors garden is gorgeous.

What beautiful roses. How nice to have a pretty flowery view out your front window too.

Marcia said...

Very pretty knock out roses. There's a rose bush by our side door steps. I have no idea what color it will bloom. I did give it some plant food for roses and pruned it. It's just putting out a few leaves.

Pamela M. Steiner said...

Love those roses! How nice to have so many blooming! I think I need to fertilize mine. They are rather sluggish. We need more rain too. Love all your pretty flower pictures. Those Easter lilies still blooming are gorgeous! And yes, I do love your red jeep. It looks like so much fun, especially for your hikes! Have fun, and keep taking pictures! We love them.

Diane - my Mom used to have knock-out roses - I can almost smell yours from here! Congrats to your neighbor for such a lovely garden - I am so looking forward to when mine starts to bloom! My husband pampered me for Mother's Day - so wonderful. Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!!!

Oh my goodness, Diane, your flowers are gorgeous! What hard work that must be - keeping everything looking so beautiful and neat. Wish you could send some of that sunshine up our way - we've barely been over 70 this Spring!

Also, love that you caught that reflection in the jeep window - you have such an artistic eye for detail! :)

Blessings to you!

BeachGypsy said...

oh my goodness Diane your roses are SO PRETTY. We don't have any blooming here yet, but I've seen some in other gardens. That one garden (think you said it was your neighbor's?) is so pretty too!---love all those colorful blooms! Your bright pretty red jeep looks good in EVERY PICTURE....SHE IS SO PHOTOGENIC! LOL. So glad you got it and you're enjoying lots of adventures in it. (by the way, YOU photograph well too, my cute friend!). Loved the duck pictures from the previous post and my favorite is, of course.....THE ALLIGATOR crossing the road picture. Wow!---great picture! I love to photograph them and SOMETIMES get lucky, but not always. Hope your week is going great so far and you had a real nice Mothers Day.

I love this time of year when the flowers are blooming everywhere I look. Roses are a favorite. xo Laura

Aunt Helen said...

Beautiful Red Roses for a beautiful lady! Just gorgeous! I love the Ducks on the pond. Nature at it's best!! Love to you and Hubby, Aunt Helen

Lea said...

Great photos! Beautiful flowers!
I do love red. The couch and loveseat in the living room are red, and we have two red cars!

Red Rose Alley said...

Just came over to see your red post again. It's so pretty. I have been wanting to plant a pink rose bush in the front of my house, but it's hard to get landscapers up here in the mountains, so I may have to plant one myself haha. Your red roses must look lovely at your house. And you know, they are the perfect red. Some are orangish and some are pinkish, but yours are the prettiest red. The words, "friends are the roses of life" is really true, and I want to thank you for your blog friendship all these years, Diane. Have a good rest of the week.

LA Paylor said...

Yea for returning roses!!! Your flower photots are just gorgeous. It snowed here this week

Buttercup said...

All of your flowers are lovely, but oh, those roses! We should be seeing roses in about a month and I will be visiting our local park to enjoy them. Friends are definitely roses in my life!

Happy@Home said...

How nice that your pretty roses match your Jeep.
Your neighbor's garden is also very pretty and so nice that you can enjoy it from your windows.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

That Jeep would bring a smile to anyone's face! Your roses are wonderful. And the flowrs, whether yours or your neighbors. (Nowadays, all my flowers are in other people's yards!).

Sharon Wagner said...

Every car I've ever had has been red!

Home Sewn By Us said...

Oh gosh, your Knock Out roses are gorgeous!! I had three of them in my front yard garden bed but they slowly all died from the cold. I haven't replaced them but I do miss them. You are inspiring me to pick up a few new ones. ~smile~ Roseanne

PaintedThread said...

Rostrose said...

Swooning over those flowers! Abundant and beautiful. Another great outing too! Enjoy it all!!

Jeannie said...

I am impressed with how clean the window is on your jeep. My car's window was that clean when we bought it.
