{Our Queen Elizabeth AARS Rose}

Along with singer Lynn Anderson who sang: I never promised you a rose garden we can say:
I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden.
Along with the sunshine,
There's gotta be a little rain sometimes.
Link above is from YouTube and below this post you will find a link for the full lyrics.
Husband Pieter did bring in some beautiful roses the other day; with rain drops on them. One was our Queen Elizabeth AARS Rose that I like to share here with you.
LOVE those rain drops on this Queen Elizabeth Rose.
Don't you like it too?
Husband Pieter took these photos...
Fresh from our garden...
This photo I took later with my iPhone after I'd placed it inside this silver rose vase...
Crocheted pineapple doily is done by my sister-in-law Elly.

    1. Yes, Pieter has always been a great photographer; all of his life and being it for family or for work he enjoyed it so much. That silver vase is a treasure and also the crocheted doily. You too have a great week.

  6. Prachtige roos, de queen Elisabeth is mooi, statig en sterk....
    Hier doen de rozen het nog niet zo, veels te koud...maar gisteren hadden we een fijne dag, en vandaag zit er weer een fijne dag aan te komen, en dan wordt het weer veel te koud...
    Maar alles bloeit wel lekker lang, door het koele weer, dat is wel een voordeel :)

  8. Lieve Mariette,

    Zulk een prachtige roos uit eigen tuin in huis halen heeft eigenlijk geen woorden nodig....kijken is genoeg....en af en toe je neus erin stoppen om de heerlijke geur op te snuiven natuurlijk.

    Heb een fijne zonnige dag!!
    Liefs,Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Bij deze helpt het niet om je neus erin te stoppen. Daar hebben we weer andere voor! Maar het betekent wèl iets om dit uit eigen tuin te kunnen hebben.
      Liefs en ook zonneschijn voor jullie.

  18. Hi Mariette,
    This rose from your love is stunning. I love it, the color of fresh pink and the water droplets are amazing. Droplets I love to paint. How special to enjoy and perhaps dry or press for a keepsake.

  20. What a beautiful rose!! I love the rain drops on the flower. Such natural beauty! I've seen artificial flower with artificial rain drops on it, too. It was pretty but real one is of course so much lovelier.

  27. How beautiful, Mariette! I do love the pink roses. That is what I am hoping to get for our little front area of our condo. The ones I saw recently marked down at the local supermarket are pink and I will be heading back there this weekend to get one. I had a variety of colors in the rose bushes I had at our old house.

Well, Spaniards don't really make the Egyptian linen, but I understand they embroider them, you know how they are so skillful in this field. Thank you too for all the tips on how to handle this linens, but really, I hate it when I wash it and have to iron the tons of wrinkles, lol.. Big hugs,
