Rose Inspirations Everywhere.....

These are some sweet pink roses that I painted on a duck egg for a customer. This is probably one of my very favorite pieces of egg art.

Inspired by many different kinds of roses that I've grown over the years....

Every year I always look forward to my roses starting to bloom. I love grabbing my camera to see if I can capture their beauty.

Whether they are pink.........

Red climbers.......

Or cream colored beauties, they always inspire me. I hope you've enjoyed this rosy selection and that it has inspired you in some way, to look for the beauty that is blooming all around you.

Hi Ruth, I was out early this morning and was thrilled to see my pink roses are beginning to open. I only have a tiny rose garden but they are doing so well this Spring. I also discovered wild roses on the west lake side. They are climbing up in a tree. So sweet with the tiniest little pink buds. Happy Wednesday. ~ Lynn
