The Smelling Like a Rose Weekly Link Round-up

Take a step out my back door, and you will smell roses. My Tombstone roses are in bloom. They cover two large sections of fence, and as the years pass, they will continue to grow and cover even more. They're gorgeous in the spring, and I'm always glad when our travels don't take us out of town at this time of year. I miss their glorious bounty otherwise.

It's been a busy couple of weeks, and I have a lot of posts to write, so instead of blathering away about this and that, I'll just mosey on out to the corral and see about getting these links rounded up for you. Head 'em up! Moooooooove 'em out!

That's all for this week! Don't forget to stop by next Friday when I'll be sharing a freshly selected batch of links for your surfing pleasure.

Have a great weekend, and read something fabulous!


  1. There is nothing like the smell of roses, is there, Cathy? Delicious! And speaking of 'delicious,' thanks for those links. Time for a visit to Kabul... ;-)

    1. Much safer than actually visiting in person!

  2. I love your new badge. May need one myself. And I do support the idea that you can read yourself happy. I've done it. LOL


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
