Raindrops on Roses

This past week, we received a lot of rain in the central valley - yay! I happened to notice my roses opening, despite the temperature drop. I grabbed my camera, and here you go:-)

"Raindrops on a Rose", this is the English or David Austin rose 'Ambridge Rose'. I love English roses - here's an older post telling a little of my rose journey: "Scent of a Rose". All of my roses are in pots, and the green here is Stipa tenuissima or 'Mexican Feather Grass'. It started out in a pot, too, but has found it's way into the ground and is taking over. Good thing it's a beautiful grass:-)

"Red Rose Raindrops", this is one of my Moore miniature roses, and I can't recall the name at the moment. Looks like this little blossom's about to start swimming;-)

"Dancing Drops", Okay, so this isn't a rose, but it's still so pretty, isn't it? It's Alyogyne huegelii, aka blue hibiscus. It was blowing all over, but I managed to catch this side view.

Bright enough? This is a grocery store mini. While I'm more of a pastel rose person, sometimes those bright colors just call out and jump into your cart;-)

Hope you've enjoyed "Raindrops on Roses", I can't promise "Whiskers on Kittens", but stay tuned for more photos soon!
