102 ~ White Roses

Iceberg 4
I love white roses and never seem to tire of photographing them! Since we've had some heavy winds lately, most roses have had their petals blown away and one of my bushes of Iceberg has also suffered. But they will come back with a new flush of blooms very soon. In the meantime here are some photos I took a week ago.

Did I say I love my white roses?

When I'm not taking closeups of Iceberg I go over to Margaret Merrill and admire her pretty rusty pink stamens.
These photos below were taken last year.

I wish everyone a happy weekend! Here's hoping the clouds of volcanic ash from Iceland which has halted most European air traffic will soon abate so people can continue with their travel plans.

Thanks for dropping by, and hasta la vista!

Roses never fail to amaze, from far with its beauty and near with its sweetness and intricacy

Fabulous roses - roses always remind me of my mother, they were here favourite flow and her garden was full of them and she tended them with love.

Thank you for sharing them.
