I never knew there were so many different varieties of roses until I started coming to your blog!! They are so very beautiful and not only a delight to the sense of smell but to the sense of sight also:-)

Carol, you have wonderful roses.

And for Pea: There are more than 5000 sorts of Roses in the world, Carol can not have them all.
Today it is so hot, that I must take a photo from roses when they open. Ten minutes later they are gone!

They are absolutely beautiful! I am in love wtih roses too, though I only have 2 and one of them is a rugosa which is no trouble at all. I will be venturing more with these beauties. I just got the David Austin catalog in the mail last week so I could start choosing.....

Hi Carol, yes for a meeting in europe that would still be hard to do but for all the other things I think it's really possible.
As for soccer, YESSS I do want Portugal to win MORE THAN ever because the french were really bad in 2000 when France won against Portugal and I want them to feel what they have told us...plus Portugal no matter what will always be my country :):) Viva Germany, Viva Portugal :):) :)

Simply stunning!

Alice said...

Your roses become more beautiful each day. You certainly have a talent for giving your roses just what they need, and photographing them to perfection.

Carol said...

Thank you all ladies for your friendly comments. I've only 13 different sorts of roses btw.

Well Sofia, our team is out now and they'll play about the third place on saturday (hopefully against France ;-)), so fingers crossed for Portugal to win against France and to reach the final and then to beat Italy lol

Hi Joan from Italy welcome to my blog and congrats on the won semi soccer final! Nope I can't visit them all every day, but I'm trying to do so at least once a week!
