Naomi, you have the soul of an artist in all forms! I love the crinkling in the lavender rose.
Mmm, you can almost smell those roses! I need to get my house tidy enough to enjoy some fresh flowers!
Wow, what beautifully stunning pictures, Naomi :-)
I particularly love the lavender rose and the orchid - quite breath-taking!
I have received a package from the Hollywood Hills - thank you :-) It has been piled with the other presents.
I'll pass on the enclosed gift to the other recipient at the annual Crazie Bash :-)
These photos are magnificent!! You have such a gift!!!!!!!
A breath of spring at the beginning of winter...lovely.
Happy Hanukkah, you dear, sweet lady!
I haven't sent you a card or anything, I'm so sorry, I haven't sent anyone cards, I'm horrible! So let me say Happy Hanukkah and a happy holiday season here!
I've been so busy - I started another business crocheting hats. I started just for fun but now I'm up to my elbows in yarn. Isn't that crazy? But it's a fun hobby and I needed the money. I will try to blog again soon.
Love you honey!
The lavender rose is beautiful. Well, all of them are. I'm wondering WHAT happened to my life since I moved to Fullerton. I used to have a garden filled with flowers, and since moving here --nary a one. I'm re-doing a section of my garden that gets full sun. There's lavender there, and you've inspired me to put my favorite roses in.
The roses are beautiful!! Such beautiful colors, I love your flowers.....Hope you and Sweetie have a wonderful Christmas.
Just gorgeous. Your photos never cease to amaze me...
and a Very Very Happy Hanukkah to you! may your celebrations bring the touch of God to your heart ...
the flower pics were great to see ... with our landscape covered in snow ... i could almost breath in the wonderful scent of roses ...
Wow! What a gorgeous flowers and stunning colors! I am enchanted with all this beauty, Naomi!
A Very Happy Hanukkah!
Beautiful delicate ladies they are.....strong too. :)
Happy Chanukah Naomi.
My 7 year old has decided he wants to celebrate Hannukah this year. Tomorrow night we're making latkes. And tonight we assembled our own makeshift menorah. He also informed me that we'll be celebrating Kwanzaa on December 26.
The Sterling Silver is my favorite rose, too. Beautiful!
Oh you know how I love your flower photos. I also love to see the close up, the veins, the subtle changes in color, it's just magnificent what beauty there is in nature and in the tiny details. Thanks for sharing.
We can almost smell the roses from here! Each so perfect in their beauty, thanks for sharing...
I wish you a very Happy Hanukkah...I hope your holiday season is filled with lot's of love and joy!
Indeed what a way to appreciate roses close-up ;) We all roses & all things nice isn't it?
Merry Christmas to you too my dear friend :D
to you, and to all the bloggers.
I like the lady who says her son wants to celebrate 'em all. Back in my childhood, occasionally I was guilty of cutting class on Jewish holidays---it was easy-- 60 or 70 percent of the kids were Jewish, so the teachers in Miami public schools never noticed, and at Normandy, the whole school was closed.
the fat lady
Is there anything more perfect than a rose? I think it is my favourite flower. I once shocked my son by describing a rose colour as penis pink. I think it was Blue Moon.
A very happy Hanukkah on Sunday Naomi.
I love the Sterling Silver most of all
I love how you capture the detail - the folds, the texture, the wonderful colors
Happy Chanukah my friend
All of these are just spectacular! I can almost inhale their fragrance. I can't get over how truly beautiful each one is and my favorite would be the yellow one. I love yellow roses.
We're at St. Simons, but wanted to stop by and wish you happy holidays. All the best to you, Naomi.
Happy holidays, dear Naomi. You've blessed my life this year.
I hope you can find a way to scan Larry's roses. The orchid is beautiful, and my favorite rose was the lavender one, although they're all lovely and unique in their own ways.
You never cease to amaze me with your photos, Naomi. I'm glad there'll be "more to come."
I leave it to you to publish this comment or not, my friend.
I apologize for not coming around. The EMBLOS had an emergency admission to the hospital on Thursday followed by surgery on Friday. It was touch and go, but she's on the mend.
Unfortunately, my blog duties have suffered.
Anyway, beautiful photos, as always, dear. My best wishes for you for a joyous Feast of Lights. Even as a Christian, I can revel in a holiday celebrating God's intervention in the form of "John 'The Hammer' Macabee" against Greek interlopers in Judea.
Happy Holidays and,
Hello Naomi! Those are beautiful flowers and I bet they smell good too. Anyway, advance Happy Holidays to you and wishing you all the best in life.
I especially like the pink/cream colored rose. So delicate and soft.
The orchid is splendid!
The holiday season is upon us.
Lovely roses and photos.
