How delighted I was this afternoon when my husband came home from a dentist appointment and brought me some lovely roses. He keeps an eye out for my all time favorite, called Oceana, which are a lovely pale pink on the inside with a mild fresh scent. However, on this trip the florist told him that these roses would rival the Oceana, and was she right.

These roses started out as a good size but as they unfolded they were even larger than I thought they would be. I clipped the stems and set them in water and within an hour they began opening to reveal the most glorious, large, almost cabbage rose appearing roses I have seen in a long time. They have a very pleasant, mild fragrance, very similar to the Oceana.

I don't know how much more perfect a rose can be. I had these little lovelies pose all sorts of ways for me. I must have snapped off 50 pictures, so it was hard to pick which photos I wanted to share with you, but here are four of my favorite.
