The Journey of Roses


Beautiful candy striped roses, last week on Friday . . .









Roses this Friday, in the morning light . . .





The buds have softened and the petals are beginning to fall.





The petals haven't turned brown yet. This is the perfect time to dry them.





Have a beautiful weekend!

Oh, Nancy, these roses are very special! I don't think I've ever seen any like them. Drying them is a good idea.
Have a lovely weekend :))

Good evening,Nancy! I suspect your "winter" is as mild as ours is here. Hardly any snow and "warm" temps (around the 20s to 30s), we are almost feeling like SPRING! But of course, no roses yet! HUGS! Anita

Those roses remind me of peppermint candy. Pretty!

Beautiful! I don't think I have ever seen roses of that color before! I especially love the last photo with the two buds tucked into the wall sconce :)

What gorgeous roses! They remind me of "Alice in Wonderland" when they painted the white roses red.
Simply beautiful!

This is a beautiful way to bring the sunshine in on a winter's day Nancy. Such a lovely bouquet of happiness. They will be so pretty dried too!

They're soooo lovely! I've never seen coloration like that either.. I'd love to see how they turn out after they're dried.*winks* Vanna
