The roses are blooming!
There are a few different varieties here at the Lakehouse, and they are slowly starting to open...a few at a time.
The peonies are opening up, too!
The last ones will be the pink ones.
The whites smell just like hyacinths.
It smells like Easter in the cottage right now.
I am loving all the shades of pink roses!!
I noticed a yellow one was waking up when I got home from work today.
The New Dawn roses should be open in just a few more days.
We planted two lavender bushes this year.
I'm anxious for them to show themselves.
They are the most fragrant of roses, it seems.
Having flowers from the gardens in the house again just warms my heart.
I think, out of all of the roses in the gardens, this wild, yet delicate looking pink rose is one of my very favorites.
The fragrance is intoxicating, the color is glorious, and the shape is magnificent.
As the days go on, there will be many more roses to come.....different colors, shapes, sizes, etc.
I LOVE this time of the year!!
Enjoy each day, and take time to smell the roses!!
