In full bloom....

I shared this picture with you earlier.

Knock-out rose.

Do you see all the buds on the rose bush?  Well, this is what we have now.

Full of blooms.

I brought some of this beauty inside.

Oops!  Sideways.:-) Rotate counter clockwise.:-)

There was also another Mother's Day gift from The Husband.

Another Knock-out rose.

This one is, of course, much smaller that the others, but it will quickly catch up! 

Here it is - already Thursday.  I hope you are having a good week and are planning for a good week-end that is fast-approaching.  We have a bit of sun this morning, once again.

Thank you for reading.  I appreciate your comments.


  1. I love your knock-out rose! It keeps its blooms for a very long time, too, as I recall seeing them last Thanksgiving! Our neighbor's bushes are blooming beautifully now, too, and it will be interesting to see how long they last. Sunshine will help to dry out that garden spot just a bit more, and maybe The Husband will be able to plant something soon! How wonderful that he got you another lovely rose! :-)

  2. beautiful. i love knock out roses! i am waiting for my 'new dawns' to bloom.

  3. Beautiful, Nellie. Can't wait til our roses bloom. If this weather stays warm, it won't be LONG til they do... Yeah!


  4. Such pretty blooms. I'm ready for more blossoms in our yard. I saw Lilly of the Valley getting close in our woods.

  5. Mine is the only one of my surviving rose bushes that is really healthy and blooming.

  6. Those are beautiful! I bet it won't be long until you have more roses than you'll know what to do with.

  7. Beautiful photos. Our new house has lots of rose bushes in the yard. I've never had rose bushes before.

  8. Lovely roses, Nellie. They were, well, knockouts!

    Thanks for sharing.

    And thanks for all your sweet visits and comments. Susan

  9. Mine started opening yesterday! I have a couple that color- don't you just love them?
