Photo Hunt - old fashioned

Photo Hunters


We can think of something that fits the theme for 'old-fashioned'. It is a rose and this is a picture of it in our garden. It is a very old variety, so some might call it an old fashioned rose. Modern roses don't tend to have as many petals as this gallica type, but it far surpasses newer cultivars with its lovely fragrance. Here is a description Charles de Mills Rose. We are happy to have it in our garden.



I can hardly wait until it is time for the garden to come back to life, and for the longer sunny days to warm my furs....(it is so cold here!)



I am getting a visit from baby bean. I am not used to small people, so I am keeping a careful watch in case I has to run away fast!

That is a beautiful rose. I cannot wait for it to warm up, either. Winter is my least favorite season. So dreary and cold :(

We love dat rose! Mom has a hybrid tea called "Tiffany" dat smells really good. *sigh* We can't wait until it gets warm again...We haf four baby beans in our fambly, two around 2 years old (dey is 3 months apart) and one dat is a year old and one dat is only a few months old so we is used to baby beans now. Dey are well trained in not bothering the kitties!

That is a beautiful rose. It was sunny today, but cold. We stayed in the sunbeams from inside. You do look like you are being cautious with the baby bean, Moe.
