~White Wednesday # 109~

I was hoping to share some photos of whites on my porch today, but alas...more rain and dreary skies is what I woke up to again this morning.  Hopefully there will be some sun shining for me for next week's post....I mean it is Summer, right?  If you are living in the PNW, you might begin to wonder.

Luckily I had some photos saved that I had taken of some roses from one of my favorite wild rose bushes that was loaded this year in a sea of white that smelled heavenly everytime you passed by.  I love to spread these in different areas in the house since their blooms don't last very long.   Enjoy! xoxo K.

One place they usually end up is in my pitchers under my scale by my kitchen sink where I can enjoy them while cooking in the kitchen. 

Today my featured blog is Lara over at Air Kiss.  She always amazes me with her beautiful photos and lovely vignettes she shares.  I'm showing a few of her latest photos with just a "pop" of color.  To see more hop on over to her blog which is filled with inspirational decorating and photography ideas.   Make sure you allow plenty of time to get inspired:-)

  19. Hi Kathleen! Those roses are heavenly!! I adore them! I told my hubby a few days ago that I simply must plant some. I tried hydrangeas and the climate here is just sooo tricky~~mine died. :o( But roses do wonderfully! I have two knockout rose plants, but I want the real thing!!

    Looking forward to the whites on your porch!! I'm sure they're scrumptious!!

    Happy WW!
    Hugs,

  20. Hey Kathleen you come here and I will go to your place. We are having a gigantic heat wave that is awful!!!! Son builds modular homes and said he was outside today installing doors in a closet for three hours and it registered 115 degrees and he was soaked by the end of that time. UGH! Ready for some relief , but it is supposed to get even hotter by Thursday. ugh.
    Lovely roses too!!!
    Blessings~

  23. Kathleen, I'd happily trade you out one of our hot, dry, sunny days for one of yours with rain! I'm watering constantly, and I'm going to hate to see the bill...eck! Your gorgeous roses love your climate so much more than they would here. xoxo Debra

    Long time, no see. I love all of your beautiful roses displayed throughout your lovely home. Do you know the names of any of them? I'm new to growing them so I don't know very much yet.
    Thank you for hosting WW. I'll be trying to send some of our warm, sunny weather out to you!
