Happy Mothers Day!
Mothers are as different as flowers are.
My favorite flower is the rose.
We planted seven rose bushes in the front
of our previous house. 
These are all home grown:)

Fragile looking silvery lilac or periwinkle color
a surprising fuchsia edge

Peach -not too yellow, not too red
her own charm to be  in-between

Nothing can compare for me 
with a creamy white midsummer rose
and a touch of yellow

Study in pink and red
has been a background for my screen
for several years

Several years ago I took these pics of 
combinations of roses 
for a painting. 

 Which one would you choose?

Gorgeous roses! I love them all, but if I had to choose one colour it would be the red one. Happy Mother's Day!
