William Shakespeare

How I love wild roses and the color of this one was dazzling. 🙂

When I'm not writing or creating new recipes, I love to knit and crochet; usually with some "help" from feline friend, the yarn-loving Mr. Cheddar! 🐱 With Blogger, I also host my new author's site: Geraldine Helen Hartman and my product review blog: My Real Life Reviews. I hope you will visit often and enjoy all of my sites.😂 Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing You a Happy Week and Namaste!

  1. Geraldine, you’re back! That’s so extremely nice! 🙂
    Gorgeous rose.. so rich… I can feel its fragrance just by looking at it.

  2. What a stunner, Geraldine! Hope you enjoyed every moment of your break. Lovely to see you back.

  3. Yay! You’re back – I missed you. This is so lovely I can practically smell the rose from here. 😀

  4. Hey your back, and bringing roses too. How lovely. Hope you had a good break from the blogging world.

  5. Beautiful roses. Looks much little bit like my one rose bush with the same color and kind, but after a full blooming season here, they slow up (growth) and need pruning to prepare for its next growing season next spring.

  6. Thanks dear Vesper, and you’re back to blogging too! You’ve been missed very much.

    Kim, I agree, a stunner indeed. How I love the wild roses in bloom. 🙂 I had a good break, more about that soon.

    Hi Lorraine, I took this shot a few weeks ago. I’m guessing with the sweltering weather we’ve had recently, it’s probably a goner by now. 😦 Nice to enjoy at the time though.
