Roses in June

The roses in our garden are late-blooming this year so I've been searching my photo archive from last year's visit to Haddon Hall.  Climbing up against the stonework of the house and rambling over mossy walls of the terraced gardens were some beauties.

        In the local park the first roses are beginning to bloom in the rose garden in front of the library.....

            and we've just noticed that the buds on one of our own rose bushes, Joie de Vivre, starting
            to open.


  1. I love roses...

  2. Oh my, but each and every rose is just beautiful! The photographs do them justice too.
    Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby! Enjoy your special day.

  3. So pretty Linda! I can't imagine the wonders of living surrounded by the beauty and history of your gorgeous England. I love all the stone.

  4. LOVE the door, LOVE the window, LOVE the building... awesome place and fantastic photos.. so much beauty so little time to see it all... i love mullioned windows

  5. Beautiful. I love really pale yellow roses the best.

  6. Joie de Vivre is so soft, feminine, and stunningly beautiful! I loved seeing all of your very picturesque photos of roses today. The red is one of my favorites. Have a wonderful day, Linda.

  9. How lovely to see all those roses. The pink ones on the wall at Haddon Hall and your own Joie de Vivre are so pretty:)

  10. des roses de toutes les couleurs
    les miennes ont été très abimées par les orages
    la deuxième floraison sera plus belle
    ils sont tous remontants
    bonne journée

  11. Gorgeous, Linda. I know what you mean about late. This time last year our Gloire de Dijon climber was smothered in blooms. So far this year we have three!

  12. Stunning photos Linda and I love the architectural elements amongst the flowers.
