Japanese plum flowers, winter roses


Autumn Belle asked about the plum flowers...
We have two white plum trees, and one red...
The whites are flowering now... 

One of the them gives us good fruits every year...
And wine is what we make them out to be...
As a starter for many a dinner time, it is plum wine... 

My partner Y is into flowers...
Roses are one of her favorites
This so-called 'King Rose' keeps us company throughout the winter...

We saw this cutie growing amongst the pathwalk bushes in one of our walks in the hills...
We took a branch and my partner managed to propogate it successfully...
I'd like to name this pretty one 'Princess Pink'...
It's flowers are about just 2 centimeters across...
And it flowers almost throughout the year...
Being from the hills, this little plant is very hardy...
The petals somewhat remind me of mickey mouse, no?
