Antique Roses on a Misty Summer Morn




Another quiet, misty summer morning on my steep hillside, with only the company of 
shy animals and HRH Königin von Dänemark and her court…





...similar 18th and 19th century antique roses 
Général Kléber (Moss), Celsiana (Damask), Félicité Parmentier (Alba),
New Dawn (Wichuriana Rambler, 1930 actually), and Blush Hip (Alba).











They all need their glasses filled with refreshing drink.

Until next time, stay shabby!


I’ll be sharing this with:


Please come over and see all the pretty gardens!

Gorgeous gorgeous pics Sandy. The mist around the cottage, nestled in among the greenery, makes it look like heaven on earth.

My Cottage Charm said...

Sandy, your cottage looks so ethereal sitting there in the mist....breathtaking! :) You have to come check out the board and batten I did in my son's room. I'll be revealing his room re-do soon..OH it's turned out cuter than I thought it would! :)
Hope you have a great day my friend!
Missy :)

Dearest Sandy,

These images look so heavenly! Wish one could also capture their scents...
I did also show this Félicité Parmentier rose in April: http://bit.ly/drC3CU
and Rosa New Dawn must be the most liked amongst Bloggers as I've found it manifold!

Rosy greetings from Georgia/USA

Madelief said...

You have got so much pretty roses in your garden! Love all of them. I enjoy pink roses as well. My New Dawn is in bloom at the moment, Zépherine Drouhin as well, but all my other roses only flower one time. Your little house look like a dream. It must be the perfect place to sit and enjoy the beauty around you.

Lieve groet, Madelief

Byłem niedawno w Krakowie i udało mi się znaleźć świetne ciekawostki o tym mieście. Odszukałem dzięki temu ciekawe propozycje noclegów. Polecam wszystkim [url=http://www.noclegi-apartamenty-krakow.com.pl/][color=black]noclegi w Krakowie[/color][/url] zarówno z dziećmi jak i narzeczoną. Znajdziecie tu najnowsze newsy z życia miasta Krakowa.

Często jak jeżdżę do Krakowa to odwiedzam moje ulubione miejsca takich jak kawiarenka zaraz obok rynku. Tak w ogóle uwielbiam sporo podróżować i poznawać różne nowe miejsca

PS. Czy to czy też lubicie Kraków podobnie jak ja?

Pozdrawiam
