A Favorite Thing

Today I am joining Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage for A Favorite Thing Saturday.
When one lives in a hot, dry desert country where little blooms,
it is nice to have a flower you can rely on to add a pop of color and cheer.


Moss roses are definitely one of my favorite things.
 And the bees like them, too.


Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.

 Have a beautiful day!

So pretty, Tammy. I used to love moss roses when I lived in the California desert. So happy to have met you through Favorite Saturday.

Beautiful shots Tammy. Moss roses are just so sweet. They remind me of my grandmother - she always had a big bed of them. Diane

Hi Tammy! Your flowers are so pretty and really brighten up my day...all we have left are mums and they are withering! We call these Desert Roses and a blogger in Arizona gave me the idea to plant them near my mailbox since I never get down there to water them!! They do really well and come in the prettiest colors.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

XO,
Jane

Aren't you lucky to have flowers all year! These are so pretty!!

I can see how much you would love this colorful flower in the desert. Your photos are lovely! It sounds like you have a cozy weekend planned! (previous post)

Have you ever crocheted a magic potholder? Look it up on the internet and you would find a tutorial. It is fun to do as it turns out so magically! The first row or two are challenging but after that it goes quickly.

I also love moss roses and am glad they flourish for you there. I haven't had any for years, but next Spring I'm going to plant some!!

(PS - your moving clock thing on the page for some reason doesn't let me scroll down your page easily. Just fyi.)

((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Your moss roses are lovely and it's nice to have a little visit from Mr. Bee! He looks like he's enjoying his snack...

Susy said...

Not sure I knew about Moss Roses before. I can see how they'd be a favorite thing ~ lovely.

June said...

I love moss roses T. When I was a young mom I would plant them in the only flower bed I had and the never disappointed me. No matter how badly I neglected them, they flourished. They will always remind me of those days when my children were small.

I hope you enjoy a beautiful Sunday!

Hi Tammy,
The roses are beautiful. They remind me of little carnations. Thank you for visiting me today.

Becca said...

Lovely Tammy! How warm is it still there? We're down to freezing at night here and 40's during the day.

Lori ann said...

oh how lovely! i love all roses, but the rock and wild varities are among the favorites. i'm so happy for you tammy, it's wonderful you can have these beautiful blossoms and i see the heat is going down a bit too!

Karen said...

Beautiful pictures, especially the ones with the bee:)

Catherine said...

They are really pretty little flowers Tammy. All flowers make me smile, they are such a happy part of nature. :)

Deborah said...

I can easily see why these are such a joy! Beautiful flowers and beautiful photos.

Aishwarya said...

These pink roses add pink to life too:) Pretty plants..... healthy too. I too have them but they are yet to spread out. Wondering how to grow them fast.....

Poppy said...

Hi Tammy,

Once again, I am pleasantly surprised at how similar Kuwait is to Crete re: natural elements. These flowers (and the busy bees in them!) are what I have to contend with every time I try to prune or cut to decorate the house! But, I guess we're lucky, as in some places around the world, a large population of these insects have disappeared, which of course disrupts the whole process. Also, love your pancake post. Are you able to find maple syrup and Hershey's Kisses there?!!

Have a great week.

Poppy:)

Yesterday I was at the Antique Rose Emporium and was astonished at the number of varieties and to learn how many of the varieties were edible. Love your photo with the bee.

Babajeza said...

Lovely photographs! I can't see any flowers due to today's fog. The bees have all gone.

So beautiful and healthy, they almost look like carnations! My dad grows pots of these in the summer time here in Tennessee to add richness to our backyard deck.

It's wonderful to find something that will grow in a hot, dry climate. And bloom so beautifully. You must really enjoy the colour.
