Favorite Things Friday - April 28th

I can't quite say TGIF yet, but it's closer to Friday than Thursday right?  I'm sure a really good lawyer (which I'm not) could argue that point and make it stick.  

Not sure where I was going with that, but lets move on to FTF!  It's been a wet and dreary couple of weeks.  But all the rain has paid off.  I walked out the door this morning to the glorious smell of a multitude of roses. 

Flowers are really one of my most favorite things and these not only look lovely, they just smelled so good.  They don't have a real strong, overpowering smell, it's very subtle.  These rose bushes could use a good trim, but they look so glorious with all the roses, it's been hard to cut them back.  As it is the clemantis are barely visible.  But you can see them really well when you walk out the front door. 

The yellow roses on the other side of the house aren't blooming yet, but there are buds all over them. 

In the next week or so there will be big fluffy yellow blooms all over the place.

So that's it for my FTF this week.  What's yours?  Check out Quilting in My Pyjamas for more cool favorite stuff! 


  1. Thanks for making me laugh, i love how you started your post.
    You are so lucky, look at those beautiful rose bushes.
    The clematis looks beautiful too. I wish I could grow roses easily here.

  2. Love your roses. My rose bushes and my clematis are full of buds, but since it has been raining for the last three days and we had almost no sunshine, they are not yet blooming. Great favourite!!

  3. Gorgeous images! You've been in my thoughts as I've watched the news about the tornadoes.

  4. I am so envious of your beautiful roses. Gorgeous photos too. I can almost smell them.

  5. In much the same way that it's always 5 o'clock somewhere, rest assured that it's Friday somewhere already...

  6. I love your flowers. The clematis are so vivid and delicate looking. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Ooooh, lucky you! We won't see blooms like that for a few weeks yet! I absolutely LOVE flowers, too!
    I have too many favorite things, but I do love sunshine (we have some today!), my family, fabric, chocolate, and more!! If I have them all together at once, I am in Heaven!

  8. beautiful!

    Do you cut whatever is blooming and bring it in your house? That's something I'm going to try to do this year - to display on our foyer table - I just switched tulip blooms for a few branches of our pink dogwood!

  9. What a glorious display of colour in your garden Kate. Im hopeless at gardening and we dont have any flowers here so Im green with envy over your wonderful garden.

    And as usual gorgeous pictures to go with your Favourite Thing. I love flowers!

    Thanks for linking up to FTF this week.

  10. Beautiful! You certainly have a beautiful garden. thanks for sharing it with us.
