Beautiful Roses

( All photos in this post were taken by Susan Wicker. They are supermarket roses!)

Roses are among the most exquisite of flowers.

Honestly, I don't think there is anything more gorgeous than a rose in bloom.

The other day at the supermarket, I splurged by picking up a half dozen roses, three yellow and three red.

I had the perfect vase in mind in which to put them. A pale yellow color, it has roses on its outside.


When I look at the intricacies of a rose, I see the hand of God. 

No one else could make anything more incredible!

Imagine living inside a rose. What a fragrant, soft and indulgent place that would be!

I placed the bouquet of roses on this pretty little green crocheted doily.

Now someone spent a lot of time making it.

Susan, I think you know the answer to that...YES, I LOVE ROSES! These roses are amazing - did you take the pictures? I don't think I've seen a rose with this much detail ever in blogland. They are so big, bright, and vibrant with color. I love everything you said here. What a special post.

I like the smell and look of roses and the yellow ones the best of all.

Yesterday I bought my first knock out rose at Lowes. It was half price and looked a little weak but I have hope for it!

Oh, yes, I love roses, and yellow is my favorite! Dad used to have a Peace rose in our front yard, but for some reason, it never "bushed out," but just kept growing taller. The blooms were HUGE and gorgeous, with just a tinge of pink around the edges of the delicate yellow petals. Perhaps he needed to prune it, but we did enjoy each bloom as they came along! Your vase and the doily are lovely!

Hello from Spain: roses are my favorite flowers. I like the crocheted doily. We continue in contact

Our minds are thinking similar with our posts today. Your vase is beautiful the colors in it... and I also like the color of the doily. You have such a good decorating eye...I could use your help...if we were closer. :)

I love the pics you got of the center or the heart of the rose. I see God's handiwork there too. Gorgeous. And yes, I love roses.
