Roses and Donuts...

I'm in heaven at home. I never go on vacation in June ever. I wouldn't even consider it. Why would I leave when my roses are blooming. Why? It would be crazy! Yep, here it comes.. Tiffany's yearly rose revelry. You can just skip this post if you are gagging. I love roses!!!
I took these photos this morning. this is a picture of our yellow climber. I love it! You know it has taken awhile for all the roses to get established. It takes about 3 years for them to really start producing, but this yellow has made big strides.. every year being better than the last.
I will have to show you the peace roses and the Abraham Lincolns tomorrow or something. It's been a busy week. Dance week.. little c is high as a kite!
On another subject, have you heard the expression "Wickedness never was happiness.." Well, the other day, I was at the grocery store being profoundly tempted by chocolate cake donuts.. you know I'm trying to eat healthy.. anyway. The donuts found their wile way into the cart and even home, but when I took the white paper pastry sack out of the bag, I found to my horror and dismay that the donuts had been packed under the bananas and the celery and carrots. Yes! Under all the heavy, healthy stuff. Ironic? Well, that just made me mad and I had to eat that donut even though it was smashed flat.. And, you know what, it was still pretty awesome.. so I don't know about that saying after all. :)

That is so beautiful. All your lovely roses. I wouldn't leave to go anywhere either. Do they smell good too? Some do and some don't.

That is so funny about the donut. They do taste good smashed or fluffy. I love donuts so much. It was national donut day awhile back, so we splurged and went and got Spudnuts Donuts. They are made out of potato flour. Yummy.

But that is a very rare thing. So I am glad you still enjoyed that yummy sounding chocolate cake donut. Maybe we'll have to splurge sooner.

Ah, what lovely roses! Our old house had established roses lining both sides of the driveway, and once I learned how to care for them, I really loved them a lot. I should go buy one for our yard. So pretty! Funny donut story. :)

Thanks for sharing them!

A donut is a donut no matter how smashed. It's an indulgence, so go ahead once in a while.

That last rose was my favorite with all the dew on it. Can just smell them in my mind. I wouldn't leave while they are blooming either. Enjoy God's handiwork while you can. xxoo

Your rose pictures are so beautiful that I wanted to take a breath in to smell them. I can't wait to see the other roses you have. About the donuts-I YEARN for donuts. I used to love maple bars but the gluten was killing me so I had to let them go.
:(
Have one or two smooshed donuts for me! :)

Smiles,
Robin, who is soooo looking forward to getting her love box! :)
Thanks again

Love the roses. Last week, there was a National Donut day and we ate donuts for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yes, we really did.
