Flowers as gift

When the theme for Floral Friday was ... 'flowers as a gift'  I thought I would like to share a few more photos of my roses, as a gift to all my readers.
I went out with my camera and basket in the early morning and picked a few bunches

It was the perfume wafting around the house, the pleasant scent hit me when I walked in, after a day out and the house had been shut up all day. 
The fragrance from the delicate pale pink roses was intoxicating and I  wish I could bottle this and send you all a little vial

Thank you ever so much to my kind readers who take the time to visit my blog and share their thoughts and leave a note. 
I know how busy life is at this time of the year
Notice the little dew drop on this rose

Have a fun and special weekend my friends
