Knock Out, One Year!

It is hard to believe that one year has already passed since my dear best guy planted my pink Knock Out Roses in front of my studio. My how they have grown and filled in the area so nicely. Do you remember I wrote a little poem when he planted them for me? It went something like this~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Love's Roses
Outside my art shoppe window~
sweet roses I do see.
Planted by my dear love one~
especially for me.

He chose the spot directly~
by love for sun's delight.
With blessings only they can offer~
through petals pink and bright.

When inspiration I am seeking~
I only have to see~
Outside my art shoppe window~
Sweet roses bloom for me.

Here are the new pics of my gorgeous roses. I can view these everyday while working in the studio, which are the windows you see here.


I also picked my first bouquet of roses from my garden yesterday. They are gorgeous bright colors. I had some fun with my photoscape and created a painting from the pic.


It has been a very busy time in the studio this season and I am loving every minute of it. Here is a few pics of the new treasures nearly ready for my shoppe. Ending with a little mosaic of pics which includes a little pic of a dress shop I found over the weekend in Boerne, Texas with my name for the shoppe. I also saw a pink Corvette and my best guy snapped a pic for me while in the shop.

I hope you have a great weekend and enjoying the warmer weather. See you again soon with details for my Spring Giveaway!

Hello Celeste, wow your roses are just beautiful. I have that same rose bush but did not plant mine as a hedge like yours. It's a great rose and blooms all summer. I have two of them now and just love them.
Your new items that you've made are just beautiful. Love those little push pins too.
I noticed you have a Southern Lady magazine, I get that magazine also and love it!

I have a three day weekend and I plan to really enjoy it. Lots planned to do!
It was nice to visit with you!
Blessings, Shirl

Hi, Celeste! I'm taking a break from packing to say hello and CUTE CAR! How sweet of your man to snap that pic for you! ♥

Marilyn said...

Great post and beautiful roses.....wondering if the knock out roses will tolerate a little shade.

A Hint of Home said...

Your roses are gorgeous! Mine are blooming but not as full as yours yet.
They do make a statement, don't they? They lift my spirits when I look out and see the bright colors. Loving this time of year even though it is so busy getting every thing outside spruced up. lol
Hubby has been scraping patio furniture and repainting it the last two days. Looks soooo much better now.
Your new Spring items are just beautiful.
Love the Vett and the pic of you in the doorway. You look darling.

ginny said...

Hi Celeste, I can only say how beautiful those roses are! We are not blooming much around here. My lilac bush has green on it!

Celeste
Received your email, I am excited for my package but know it will arrive before I leave for Florida! I'm wondering how many roses bush do you have planted together, well that hubby planted. Where I live we can't plant ours too close together due to the climate, they tend to get diseased, yuk! I really never get to enjoy such lush plantings, ours are all spaced apart. Gee, every time I think of my goodies I get excited! I have been wanting for so long to hang hankies up, also the sifter, well all can say is it will fit here perfectly with my faux goodies around it! I'll make sure to post pictures and let you know! later,Lori

Lori said...

Oops, one last question. Was that a current issue of Southern Lady magazine? Thanks, Lori

Draffin Bears said...

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Celestina Sweetie...
I wanted to pop over and take a minute to thank you for the beautiful cherry basket. As you saw from the pictures I was so very moved. It will be treasured forever, and I simply adore the spoon Marydon had you make for me. I love anything cherry, and it is so hard to find them. I am going to find a stand of some sorts to hang my spoon on and my cherry basket will be placed in glory for all to see that enter my home. Thank you sweet friend, thank you.

I am off to your shop to see what you have added. I so adore your work. My pumpkin has been treasured since day one. I keep it out all the time. Thank you, thank you.

Have a beautiful day sweet friend, and thank you for sharing your roses. My they are happy in their place by your studio window. What beautiful inspiration to paint by. Love it. Your poetry just tugged at my heart. Thank you for sharing sweetie.

Country hugs and so much love, Sherry

Love those Knock-out Roses. Wow, just gorgeous!

I woke up this morning and my fever is down a bit, so I thought I would post some pictures of the P&P Art Event. Drop by and take a peak some time.

It is my first to read the poem. I think it's very sweet. It made me smile :-)

Roses . . . one can look at it everyday and never ever tire of it :-) Love your roses in the vase cause not only are they beautiful (!) but I also like that each one is different.

MIzpah Celeste!
