And nothing is more lovely and appreciated than beautiful flowers on your special day. I hope you enjoyed you birthday.
Van's the man!
The shape of your roses is so perfect I wonder if you have different varieties - as do we - which are less perfect in shape?
The colours are amazing and I suspect Van keeps his special beauties for you.
My roses in the garden are sadly depleted and not abundant enough to bring indoors.
Stunning! The are beautiful mandalas that bring peace and make me hungry to smell. I'm so glad they have lifted your spirits. Has your birthday come and gone already?
Beautiful roses with lovely colours and shapes! A visual treat indeed!
Oh, I was thinking your birthday was July 27 and was waiting to see some birthday photos! xo
No matter what the flower, Van seems to send you only the best. Me thinks you are special to him. They are just beautiful.
I love roses and those ones in particular are so very beautiful! :) Thanks for sharing them with us.
So, I guess you understand completely why I love being a floral designer!! Gorgeous photos, Naomi. Hope you are doing better now.
Fabulous as always Naomi! I don't know why but I love white roses. There is one that I don't know the name of that just has the most gorgeous *perfume* to it.
I was just wondering.. it's been a long time since "the ladies that lunch"... will you be having a gathering soon?
their delicate and complex folds make them so beautiful
and of course all the colors
I love how many shades of white I see in that perfect rose
Oh my.... your rose photos are beautiful. Wish I had "smellovision" on this computer then I could enjoy the delicate fragrance of the roses. You're a lucky girl, Naomi!!
Spectacular photos as always. The flowers are beautiful but you do have a gift for capturing that with the camera.
Gorgeous roses, Naomi!
Stunning colors! Van is really a great artist! Thanks for sharing such beauty with us.
A sight for sore eyes.
Exquisite. I think I can smell them.
Just stunning roses! I can just imagine how heavenly they smell.
Roses are romantic, fragrant and beautiful...oh and full of promise! I love roses. Who doesn't? Thanks for sharing these lovely photos, my friend. They brighten up a room and a mood. Thank you and hope you are doing well. Hugs...♥
Roses or flowers will always lift our spirit up :)
So lovely, just like you because you take such joy in them. :)
Every one of these is beautiful and so are your photos. What a wonderful gift. Your house must smell glorious right now1
I have to admit I've really only come to appreciate flowers in recent years. Actually mainly because of your blog, no really, and your beautiful calendar you sent me. :) I can almost smell your roses from here. Lovely shots.
I love the delicacy of the coloring, how it's mostly one color, but then there's a dusting of another. If you think of this from a genetic point of view, you would think the color variations might be to attract pollinators, but really, so many flowers with so many variations, you have to step away from the science and just accept that the Creator is an artist who likes to show off. :-)
Hi, just stopped by for a quick peek at some pretty, and to see how your doing. Hope all is well. As always my life is crazy., Work at the nut house house (LM) The Farmers Markets are of course in full swing. And my daughter and grandson, now lives with us, and he is busyyyyyyyyyyy. He has some medical issues that will be life long, so pray for him and his parents, they all need it.
