Bella's Roses

This is Bella's rose. She's celebrating her first blog anniversary over at Bella's Rose Cottage, so I'm celebrating too! I went fishing around her blog to get these pictures, and believe me it's a wonderful way to start the day! But many of you already know that!

I'm not a gardener, so I'm thrilled with Bella's bountiful garden. She's also a prolific blogger so you don't have to wait long for a fresh bloom to admire. These Hollyhocks up next to the gazebo are one of my favorites.

There's always something wonderful inside or out. This darling arrangement of teacups. . .

Or this exquisite paper butterfly enchantment under glass.   

Some of her most recent magic is this lyrical little heart box of her own interpretation. It sings of nothing but romance all the way down from it's crowning faded rose to the bits of vintage music!

But what could be sweeter than these elegant Valentine treats she's serving over there today?

Maybe another of her roses whose very name is "Sweetness." And Bella herself, of course.

Many congratulations on a very sweet year of blogging, Bella!
We're looking forward to many more!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Ciao! for now!


Visit Bella Here, and be sure to tell her I sent you!

She is indeed talented. I wish I had that kind of luck with hollyhocks. I shall once again try them this year. I just want flowers and no more snow, but that isn't likely.

Jacqueline, how nice of you to do a tribute for Bella's blog anniversary.
I agree that her posts are always interesting and beautiful, she's a great gardener too.
Blogging has brought together so many people with new friendships made. Bella is lucky to have connected with you.
