  1. >As much as I like the rose 'Peace' and her coloring, I love the story of her creation during WWII even more. Beautiful photos after a rain perhaps?~~Dee


  2. >Dee,Yes, we have been having some much needed showers in Birmingham. After 44 days over above 90 degree weather, it sure is welcome! I also love this rose for all it represents. I planted it in memory of my Mom who passed away in 2006. Thanks for stopping by…..


  3. >Beautiful! I love the pictures of flowers with raindrops on them. I don't know why, but they change the whole mood of the picture. I really have to learn how to better use my camera! Happy WW!

    >Beautiful! We could all use a little peace. I tried this rose in my garden a few years back, unfortunately I was unable to give peace a chance. It didn't make it through one especially bad winter. Sigh.
