Sunlit Sunday - Flower Walk

There is nothing like some remembrances of summer flowers to bring sunlight and cheer into a chilly, rainy winter day.  Smell the sweet flowers as we walk among yesterdays.


A single pink rose.  .  .


Just down the way - a sunshiney yellow rose.  .  .





And around the corner - a garden full of Irises.  .  .








Rose Hedge in our backyard in California.  .  .

Wild Roses and a Redwood Tree.  .  . 

Bundles of blossoms.  .  .


Did you enjoy the sweet scent along the way?  That is the best thing for a winter day.

Roses and irises; you've highlighted two of my favourites. I especially like the purple and white blossoms of the one iris variety. A few more months and I'll be enjoying some in my garden too.

Thank you for sharing these colourful blooms at Sunlit Sunday.

Gorgeous! I love bearded iris and I can't grow them here. I miss them. The ones you shared are wonderful!

Lovely! :) it's cold and yucky here ( snow melted and its a muddy mess ) but my finches are working on their nest on the back porch so maybe we'll have an early spring...

Yes, I could imagine the sweet perfume of the roses and irises. Looking at your pretty flowers is a breath of sunshine on this snowy day.

Loved seeing the sun on your flowers! I remember eating fiddlehead ferns when I lived in Alaska. I was there for seven years.
