Roses and a Sunny afternoon in November

"I'll Pick a Rose For My Rose!"
On a Tuesday in Spain we go Gardening and today we were greeted by this wonderful sight in the garden- Roses in full bloom in November.
I was so glad I had my camera with me

Peace was one of my Grandmothers favourite roses and it was lovely to catch up with it again a long way away from her gardens but smelling as beautiful as ever.


  1. Lovely photos, Linda. 'Peace' was my Dad's favourite rose and every time I see it, I think of him. Having lost him forty years ago, the perfume still has the power to take me back all those years. Thanks for the memory!


  2. Oh . I know what you mean such lovely memories

  3. We have 'Peace' in our garden, planted by the previous owner and I am only just learning the different names of all the lovely roses we have. It's still blooming because it has a very sunny spot in the mornings. The smell is amazing, I never knew roses could smell so... well, rosey! I am used to the shop bought variety! x
