My World: Roses for my Beautiful Bride

Ronald Reagan rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 31, 2010.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

If you’ve read Betsy’s blog you know that we have 55 varieties of roses in our yard.  They keep us busy, but we have enough roses that I can bring in a rose for my Beautiful Bride just about every day.

The rose above is one of our new roses this year.  The picture really doesn’t do it justice, but the Ronald Reagan rose is a beautiful bicolor.  This is the rose I brought into the house for Betsy yesterday.

Speaking of my Beautiful Bride, Betsy is still in a lot of pain whenever she is on her feet for more than a couple of minutes.  Hopefully she will be able to see the doctor later today and get some answers.  In the meantime I can’t begin to tell you how much we both appreciate your thoughts and prayers.

    Oh I wish my husband would take up planting roses. 😉
    This one is very pretty George and I’m sure it lifted Betsy’s spirits.

    How beautiful. Finally, my dad’s roses have bloomed. As his brain tumour killed him, he lost the ability to care for them. We inherited the property and I have been trying to manage them. Finally, success!

    Sweet roses for your sweet bride. I like flowers in the house too.
    Knee problems are no fun so hopefully Betsy will have some answers after today. MB

    Betsy has continued to be in my prayers, and I wait to find out about her doctor visit. You must be the best nurse ever to be bringing her a rose every day! This rose is stunning, wonder if it was Reagan’s favorite?

    here’s another soul wishing betsy the very best.

    you have 55 varieties of roses! wow! what is your favorite?

    That is one fantastic looking rose George! It’s certainly not an easy time for both of you with Betsy being in such pain. When a loved one hurts we would sure like to be able to help carry the pain somehow. So glad she has you to be her helping hand until she is well again. God give you strength for every moment of every day! God bless!
