Photo Challenge - Flowers

First I forgot to sign up for this Challenge.

Then I forgot to post my pictures for this Challenge that I forgot to sign up for.

I've been moving through a brain fog lately and I sure do need to shake it off.

Anyway, here they are and for a REAL pleasure be sure to click on over to the Challenge Blog to view all the participants.



Pretty little wild roses that are growing beside the gravel road. If you click it bigger and look closer you can probably see the dust on the blooms and leaves. I love these little surprise splashes of color that I get to see sometimes.

This is my Peace rose. The blooms are huge and it smells soooooo good!

I'm not sure what this rose's name is, but it puts on a show with all the different shades of color that it displays on the same bush.

Now I'm going to surf over to see lots and lots of flower pictures while I sip on my first cup of morning coffee.

I just love roses...they don't do so well in our foggy clmate here on the Pacific coast of California, just south of San Francisco!

Sally said...

Beautiful, Ms Brenda. I like the frames also. You ladies are too smart for me. :)

Have a good weekend.

I wondered what was going on... your challenge and you weren't listed. "Snap out of it!!!" LOL! I do know the feeling. I love the Peace rose. I have had them in the past, but The nasty nitters got to them... it was painful between the spiders and the over sexed Japanese beetles they just couldn't make it in my garden. I do love the peach colored rose... it is beautiful!!! So, you have told me before, but tell me again... where do you get the frames?

Beautiful rose pictures!

Ann said...

I'm always in a brain fog. Love your flower shots and the border you put around them is really cool

Donna said...

What lovely roses! I can almost smell them, LOL! It's great that wild roses bring us smiles as we drive down country roads. Around here, they all seem to by white, include some big stands of them along the edges of our new woods. The peace rose was my dad's absolutely favorite, so I instantly think of him when I see one. So that one, Miz Brenda, is my favorite picture!
