Outdoor Wednesday

Hello everyone! It is so wonerful that it is summer and in the 100's in S. California! hahaha....where's my ice tea, mostly ice?
Welcome to another Outdoor Wednesday with Susan @ http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ Be sure to look at all the outdoor photos everyone has posted on this Outdoor Wednesday.

Here is our front porch railing and my climbing rose bush I planted many years ago.

Oh my gosh I can't believe my camera took this picture...is that a water droplet? Wow, finally a wonderful picture! Out of only 1000 or so! Hahaha

Yes these are my roses, they do look pretty don't they?

Well thank you for the wonderful visit!
Blessings upon blessings!

Beautiful, beautiful flower pictures -- I especially love that creamy white climbing rose. The deer eat roses here -- they don't last long!

Your flowers are gorgeous, and so are your pictures! Nice post... thanks!

I love that scripture verse you pit at the end of this post.

The roses are so pretty. Ours are not happy this year. It was too wet this Spring.

Have a great day!

Hello, Debbie,
I see you and I both have a love for roses. The climbing one on your porch is so beautiful and makes your home so inviting. Thanks for sharing your photos of your pretty flowers. Hope your week is going well. Vicki

Pretty, pretty flowers, especially the one shot where you captured the dew drop! Love your blog header. Sue

Debbie, I love your front porch! Everything looks so casual and relaxed and lovely. I'd get excited too if one of my rose pictures turned out like that one with the raindrop on it! Right now I just have a point and shoot cam, so whenever I get a special photo like that it's a cause for celebration! LOL Be blessed! :)

Debbie that picture of the white rose with the water drop is gorgeous. I love roses, especially those climbing roses around the porch.

Pam said...

Your flowers are beautiful! Especially the rose picture with the water droplet.
I love warm weather! My kids and hubby have a family joke that if I ever get warm, it must be scorching and unbearable to everyone else!

Hi Debbie,

Love your pretty flowers. We haven't many in our garden this year, we've been trying to grow veggies! I'd love to have a place where we could have chickens :)

Wow...in the 100s where you live? You poor thing. We have had a really cool and rainy summer here in PA. You porch looks super cozy from your photo. The flowers are doing really well considering all the heat you have had. Just lovely! Amy
