Raindrops on Roses

After one of our recent thunderstorms, I noticed my roses were in full bloom. I slipped out and shot a few photos before the raindrops dried.

Unfortunately, I don't know the names of my roses. Most of them were gifts to me, and the names have been lost.

I think I shall call this one Helga, just because.

I shall name this one Atlas.

I dub thee Hermes, O Sweet Red Rose.

And I shall whisper out Aphrodite's Tears when I see you, O favored rose.

And you I will name First Born, because you are the blooms from the first rose I planted, over 20 years ago.


  1. Beautiful roses, but I bet you'll forget the names. Just call them the red one and the pink one, etc. and you'll never mix them up!

  2. Oooh, these are so pretty, Anita! The raindrops just add to their beauty no matter what kinds of roses they may be. :-)

  3. Lovely! I especially like the top pic and the red rose bud (Hermes).


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
