FABBY: ALTAFLOR Rose Farm Tour 1

I will be joining Alyson for her great meme FAVORITES ON THE FIRST on May 1, 2013 at,
 Part of one of the green houses where the roses grow at ALTAFLOR,  my Bil's rose farm.
ALTAFLOR is my Bil's Rose Farm, where we went this past weekend for a family reunion.  Here are some of his fabulous and gorgeous roses in most colors for you to see that Ecuadorian roses are the most beautiful in the world, because of so many factors and the most important is the high altitude climate in the Andes.
These are bunches of 25, long stem roses in each of the ones you're going to see and the way they export all over Europe, USA and Russia.   And here you have them...enjoy looking at all these stunning ladies!

Fabby, these roses are just gorgeous! What a delight to the senses for you to see and smell them in person. It's amazing that roses come all the way up here from Ecuador. Have a great day!

Norma2 said...

Fabby, ¡qué belleza!La rosa es mi flor preferida y no me canso de admirarla cuando la tengo en un florero y si es de cultivo en un jardín su perfume es exquisito, no así las que se compran en las florerías.
Beso desde Argentina
Siempre es primavera

Gloria (The Little Red House with the White Porch) said...

Fabby, they are fabulous! Yes, I know I say that about your tablescapes too, LOL! You know that I like saying "Fabby" and "fabulous" in the same sentence. ;)
Seriously, these are the most gorgeous roses. Oh, that lavender one? And the one with the green outside and pink inside? GORGEOUS. Are you on Pinterest? I sent you an invite. If you are, please 'pin' some of these, they are so beautiful, and let me know your Pinterest name so I can 'follow' you. Please give my kudos to your brother-in-law for his wonderful roses.

swedecollection said...

Just incredible. I've never seen the greenhouses before. Would like to see more photos of what they are growing in - pots - raised beds? The colors are just magnificant! Wedding table is very lovely. Thanks for showing this to us.

Babs said...

Fabby, The roses are stunning. So many gorgeous colors. Look at that lavender one! Wow.They are all perfectly shaped. It's amazing that they can be shipped around the world and still stay beautiful. Have a great weekend,

I love so many of them but I think my favourites are those purples ones. So beautiful. Thanks for sharing at our Link It Up Thursday party.

SavannahGranny said...

Oh Fabby, These are breathtaking. I tried to choose a favorite color but could not. I absolutely love the wedding table arrangement.
I was very impressed with the company's mission statement. So honorable.
Thanks for sharing and letting us know the origin of our beautiful roses.
Love to you,

Jo's This and That said...

What a great place for a family get together, so cleaver. The roses are all gorgeous! Thanks for sharing! Joann

Alycia Nichols said...

Altaflor? That literally translates to "high flower", doesn't it? That's a very clever name given the fact that the flowers are grown at a high altitude. VERY clever! The roses are gorgeous! I love seeing them in those big bunches of 25 when I go to the wholesale floral place. The color and fragrance is just astounding! Makes me want to buy some right now! Beautiful, Fabby!

Ann @ Suburban Prairie Homemaker said...

Makes you wish there was "smell-o-vision"! Beautiful photos!

Dolores said...

Red Rose Alley said...

I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'In Wendy's World.' Your blog is so lovely, and as I was scrolling down, I noticed all the roses, especially the red and I started to smile, as our blog is called Red Rose Alley. While I was reading, I noticed that you have two daughters also. We started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is filled with beauty, and I really enjoyed browsing through your pictures of creativity. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day. Oh, my Jess is a LIBRA too!

Thank you for visiting and following Red Rose Alley. Yes, my niece is all grown up now - 23 years old. I thought it was a lovely story about Faith so I decided to post it. I will back to visit with you, and I am following your sweet blog too.

fabby alright!

Desire Empire said...

How completely stunning are the roses.

Thanks for all your lovely comments. Yes coffee is fattening as the beans have a lot of oil, but as I said if you can't cut it out just reduce it. I have several skim flat white coffes each week and I am still losing.

Good on you for your results as well.

C'est moi Claudette said...

Ldy ~~ Dy said...

All those Roses!! Absolutely beautiful! I could only imagine how wonderful the scent was!! Thank you for sharing!

Susan (My Place to Yours) said...

Fabby, I'm catching up on blog visiting... This post is fantastic, and I just forwarded it to a florist friend as well as Renaissance Man (my personal rose grower)! Gorgeous roses!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Fabby,
What a fabulous post about my most favorite flower; the ROSE! I enjoyed watching the video from and I learned that they go to Germany, Rusland, Ireland and some to the USA. Great quality and it employs some 130 people, which is great! My sister has worked a while for such a rose grower in The Netherlands. When we visited once with our American friends, for them it was like going to heaven. Most Americans never have seen that many flowers in one spot. The cool storage was such a sight. You know that the Dutch are great flower exporters, via Aalsmeer's flower auction they fly out the same day to most continents. Sorry I missed this post, but I had so many doctor's appointments...

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

That is absolutely amazing. The most beautiful roses ever.

The French Hutch said...

Hi Fabby, Beauties, yes indeed. The roses from your farm are stunning to say the least. What a lovely business. I’m sure the reward is worth all the work that must come with a rose farm. Thanks for sharing your beautiful rose farm Fabby..........

Alison @ The Polohouse said...

I would never ever EVER get tired of looking at these gorgeous blooms!
I can only imagine what your wedding must have looked like!

You will have to share that one day with us too!

I was in our local floral shop recently and asked the owner if he carried your roses and though he knew that he had Ecuadoran roses, he was not sure who the suppliers were.

These specimens are truly stunning, Fabby. So glad you linked up!


Miss Kitty said...

Oh, Fabby...I have chillbumps looking at all of those fabulous flowers!!!Thank you so much for sharing those great photos. I have ordered Ecuadorian roses many times to do weddings for friends, etc. and they are amazing. I can't believe what great condition they arrive in coming all the way to the USA in a box! I saw your post over at Alison's "PoloHouse" flower party.

Babs said...

Wow! That's rose heaven. They all are gorgeous,so perfect,and so many colors! Love them!
