Warmer- YES!I love wild roses too.
Hi Ruth and Jake,A lovely combination of garden and field. Dog roses are so beautiful and such a pest in th egarden where the birds kee seeding them. Their roots go clear to China! We have a lo on our road verges (7km).Lovely macro shots as well, are they yours Jake?
I can almost smell the wild rose and your macros of the lilies are beautiful. You and I have at least 3 things in common, love of the Lord, love of stargazer lilies and fondness for Canadian thistles. My husband used to cut hay and he hates them with a passion and I have always loved them,so do the butterflies. Thanks for the breath of summer.
Love the macro pictures of flowers. Great.
I'm definitely feeling warmer! Thanks for sharing.
Spring is coming! sooner or later :) but, it WILL come! Beautiful Floral Photos, Ruth!Thank you...
What lovely photos. I'm starved for a little color this time of year. Seems like spring is still a long way away.Marnie
Absolutely gorgeous, Ruth... I love that spring Tulip you have on the right also... OH--on this drab, dreary day---I enjoyed seeing some summer flowers. Thanks!!!Hugs,Betsy
I am loving all these flowers today!
The raindrop on the lily is beautiful... your flowers are all so very special!~Michele~
Good idea, Ruth! The warmth and color and sunny feeling is so nice! Lovely pictures!
You need some warm memories with the extreme cold your are experiencing. I cannot even imagine cold like you have right now. Beautiful pictures.
Ruth: Beautiful flower captures, nicely captured. You should think about sharing them with Today's Flowers.
Beautiful photos, you have a lovely blog.
Each of these is a gem and wonderful to see all that color right now.
The close up of the iris is my pick. Thistle is so pretty, and the butterflies love it.
Yes Ruth, these beautiful flowers always help to push us through the doldrums of the gloomy winter days. Too bad we can't smell them too.I love wild roses!B.
Ruth, Wow just what I needed today to cheer me up..one of those drab dull overcase, had to go to the dentist days! Love your wild rose photo and oh how I do love those stargazer lilies!! Thank you for that smile!!
The photo of the stargazer lilly with the water droplets is just stunning. All of the photos are beautiful.
This is the fun part - posting memories of summer when everything was more colorful and temps were warmer while we sit and sip some hot cocoa and try to stay warm. Beautiful photos as always, Ruth.
Wonderful flower photos...thank you! Annie
I definitely felt the warmth from these beautiful photos!
Beautiful flowers. Only 86 days left until April!
all lovely reminders of the promise of spring and summer to come. Part of my bird feeder area is an old, huge rambling Wild Rose bush. Thank you for the visual reminder of its beauty for right now it is a tangled, leafless refuge to the little birds.Keep warm for I watch the weather happenings on the prairies and it must be so terrifically cold out there right now.
Beauties Ruth !
