At least some of these roses are red
I can’t send each of you roses for Valentine’s Day, but I can share a few photos here in my Travel Photo Thursday post.
These photos were taken in Queen Mary’s Rose Garden in the The Regent’s Park in London. I previously published a picture of a beautiful coral rose from the garden in the Raindrops on Roses post. That’s actually my favorite of the rose photos.
I hope that you’ll enjoy these roses with their raindrop sprinkled petals and imagine that you’re smelling their sweet fragrances.
Roses are pink
Roses are White
Roses are yellow
Roses are ivory
This is my Valentine Day’s gift to you and my submission to this week’s Budget Travelers Sandbox Travel Photo Thursday series. Be sure to check out other photo and story entries on their website.
I love the pink roses! There is a hybrid Tea Rose called “Princess of Wales” that is very pretty =) Hope you’ll have a romantic Valentine’s Day
The pink one is my favorite of these, too. But I hope you also checked out the coral one in the Raindrop on Rose post. That’s my overall favorite of the Regent’s Park roses. https://travelingwithsweeney.com/2011/08/28/raindrops-on-roses/
Aww, love the roses photos and hope you have a lovely, romantic Valentine’s Day! 🙂
Thanks — Wishing you a romantic Valentine’s Day, too!
Beautiful pictures, my favorite is the pink rose with the raindrops 🙂
I love that pic, too. I would have put it first, but wanted to have “Roses are Red” as my title. 🙂
Such lovely roses, Cathy. Have a romantic (and fun) Valentine’s Day 🙂
Thanks, Sophie. 🙂
Wow. Thanks for the reminder. Awesome shots. Gotta run and do some shopping !
Get going, Mike! Here’s a suggested shopping list: red roses, chocolates and champagne!
Anyone can win my heart with an ivory rose – I love their classic beauty. Fantastic shots Cathy.
Thanks, Leigh! I think the ivory ones are classic beauties, too.
I love roses and these are beautiful! I can’t believe you have pics of so many in so different colors 🙂 There’s a rose garden outside of Paris I went to about 10 years ago and it was amazing. The smell of intoxicating because there were so, so many roses.
Roses of all colors capture my attention. The garden at Regent’s Park is really lovely.
Roses are nature in perfection! Your pictures really captured the beauty of the rose. And you are so kind to send us all a valentine 🙂
My pleasure 🙂 — Thanks for the nice compliment.
Aww I was hoping for a little poem there at the beginning — first thing I saw was “Roses are red…” 🙂
That was my trick to get you to read the post! I did actually think of a little poem, but it’s best left untold. 🙂
So beautiful especially with droplets of water. I love the ivories.
I love the raindrop effect – glad that you do, too.
Simply lovely photos! Makes me long for spring when my roses will bloom (and reminds me that I have to go out and do some pruning, if I expect that to happen.)
Thanks. Nice that you have roses. My parents always had a beautiful rose garden. I’ve tried to keep a rose plant at my house, but the deers in the area love to eat them.
You’re so kind and gorgeous photos! I can send you my address so you know where to send the chocolates 😉
When I come to Munich, I will hand deliver chocolates to you!
What beautiful roses. Thanks, Cathy.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Thank YOU, Marcia. 🙂
Very lovely photos Cathy! The raindrops add such uniqueness to them. I’m partial to the red and pink. Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
Thanks, Mary. It was lucky to be there just after the rain had stopped.
Awww Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Those roses are beautiful.
Thanks, Abby — and the same to you!
Thanks Cathy. I love you too, even though I didn’t send you roses! I could never pick between the various roses, and I do wish that my computer screen had a scratch and sniff feature!
Thanks, Vera. That would be a very nice feature for photos like these!
I vote for the pink!
The ivory ones I think are my favorite. I really like the photo you took of them, and the color.
All of these are beautiful, Cathy. Impossible for me to pick a favorite.
Great pics…love how you can see the droplets of water on them…
What a beautiful colour selection, Cathy!!!
Even though all flowers are pretty I must admit that I find roses the most beautiful – especially those that are not red.
Roses! hahaha. When we were sitting in a cafe in Genoa, there were at least 5 rose sellers who approached us. Mrs Easy Hiker had to twist my arm to buy her one (really out of pity for the seller). But she eventually gave it to the girl who served us coffee, who was extremely delighted getting a red rose.
What a nice gesture — roses can make my day, too.
