Old wallpaper, roses and HIGH SPEED!!

Am I ever amazed today or what?? HIGH SPEED finally came to Buckeye Road yesterday! Where it took me literally an hour or longer to upload THREE photos to  my blog before, they are here in a flash now. I LOVE IT!! I still have no idea how to start a new paragraph on this MAC, but hey we will work with what we have for now. I see a new computer in the very near future. ha! Don't know how to watermark my photos on here either so hopefully no one will swipe them for their own.

I have been removing old wallpaper in the kitchen this week and just happened to set a pitcher of my beautiful old fashioned roses on the shelf. I loved the old and torn paper for a background. Thinking I should have left it this way and not re-papered just for photo ops. :)

Roses, old wallpaper and a camera...it doesn't get much better than that does it? *smile*

I just LOVE these roses! The bush was here when we moved onto the property over 32 years ago and since then I have dug up starts and planted them here and there around the property and they grow just fine! I need to start some more this year.



Roses always look nice in frenchy style buckets along side a hat from the Goodwill. :)

This is the bush that started it all.

The fragrance of these roses is just heavenly. They sure don't make them like they used to anymore. Today I am so very thankful for my divinely fragrant roses and my high speed!!! :) What are you thankful for?

Love your roses against your wallpaperless wall, looks so good. Not a bad idea to leave one for photo ops. Tell me how you do the clippings to start a new rose, please, my mom use to do it and I for the life of me am not so successful. I'm thankful for good friends, like you.

So happy for you! I know you've wanted it for a while now and your photos are just gorgeous!!!

I have a wild rose bush that was on our property when we first moved here as well, but mine are white. They are the most fragrant roses ever and it is just loaded with blooms right now.....it's the simple things in life:-)

Enjoy your weekend.

Those photos are just beautiful. Love those roses. So happy you have high speed internet now--I am not patient so I would never be able to handle waiting for pictures to load. Must have been so frustrating! Enjoy being fast :)

Congratulations on getting your high speed internet. I would be lost without it as I don't have very good patience for downloading. ; )
Your roses are beautifully photographed for you post today. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Sandi, these photos are so gorgeous they took my breath away. Thank you for sharing!

BTW, I was just looking at photos of the old Damask rose 'Bella Donna' and it looks like yours. It's a long-shot but...maybe? http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.575&tab=1
