The roses are a picture

Blame it on the wet year we've had, the fertiliser, or just good fortune, but the roses have been magnificent since they began their blooming a few weeks ago.  I never get tired of looking at them - or taking pics of them for that matter.  Each one so different in colour and shape and yet each of them reminds me of Jesus, Rose of Sharon!  Beautiful Saviour! Wonderful Lord!

Blessings!

These are gorgeous roses!
I read where Debbie Macomber is one of your favorite authors - she is mine too. I met her a couple of years ago - shared a very nice time of talking and laughing over a cup of tea - and she was just lovely.
I'm following along with you and your blog! I so love hearing about life in Australia!
Please visit me at my history blog - I'd love to have you follow along!

So glad you stopped by for a visit today! Your roses are beautiful. My roses were fabulous this year as well. We are heading into winter now here in Michigan so I will have to dream of roses through your blog! Have a blessed day!

Your roses are magnificent! I can almost spell their fragrance through the computer screen! ((Hugs))

So lovely to see that roses are blooming somewhere in the world right now! Mine are finished for the season. I love the one named for Princess Diana.

BeeJay, your roses are gorgeous. (I am just now getting caught up on blog reading, so forgive me for commenting so late on this post.) I had Just Joey at my previous house and it was one of my favorites (I chose it because my son is named Joey.) When I planted my garden here, I couldn't find that variety. It's nice to see roses blooming in November:)
