Spring Beauties

I'm a sucker for red.  These roses blaze as summer gets closer.  There's no such thing as too much when it comes to flowers.  These have no perfume.  We'll have to imagine a scent--a sweet scorch.  These are Meidiland roses developed in France.

This dainty plant finds a foothold in a tightly mortised stone wall.  It doesn't need much.  Somehow it's found soil in the cracks and enough nutrients to bloom--bloom small.

Bold and dainty surprised me on my neighborhood walk.  Fresh beauty is close at hand.  Why not look?


  1. Those flowers are gorgeous :) If I had a house, I'd want some in my yard.

  2. Welcome, Michael. These photos are not enhanced. The roses light up, especially with their white hearts.

  3. A beautiful post with marvellous photos on the day we celebrate WB Yeats' birthday. What else can you ask for?

    Greetings from London.

  4. Thank you for such joy. Please have a good Friday.

  5. All the best, Robert in Athens . . .

  6. Hello, Bluedog:

    Dainty, indeed!
