A Rose by Any Other Name

Roses are one thing that signify summer is here.

I cannot help but marvel as I see a rose unfold.
That out of such a small beginning, great beauty could grow.

And right behind that miracle, comes another and another, a never-ending
parade all summer long.
The colors
The velvety touch
The heady fragrance
Each one magical
Each one a mystery
Each one unique
Walking through my garden, seeing God's glorious
creations, I feel closer to Heaven.
Thanks for taking a stroll with me.

I am posting this with The Tablescaper for Summer Sundays.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Your roses are beautiful, Jacqueline. And so is your photography. xx's

  2. Jacqueline, thank you for taking us along on this morning stroll through your rose garden. I only have knockout roses in my garden, but friends have beautiful rose gardens I get to enjoy. You have some stunning roses.

  3. I admire people who do well with roses. It takes a loving heart and a gentle hand.

  4. Thank you for sharing these amazing roses! What beautiful photos you take!


  5. A sweet hello to you Jacqueline from Frog Hollow Farm. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. I'm not a huge fan of kale but I can handle it with lots of garlic or onions. My son has a juicer that he loves and has recommended more than once that we get one here at Frog Hollow Farm. Using kale with other veggies would make a powerful drink chock full of antioxidents I'm sure. Ciao, bella!

  6. Your roses are amazingly beautiful, Jacqueline..Christine

  10. Beautiful roses! Our gardening guru spoke of them on his radio show yesterday and said so few people today have patience to grow them.
    Thanks for stopping by Applejack Lane today. I am continuing my saga of Kahlo for the next few days so my daughter can keep up with him while she is in Iceland.
