FABBY: ALTAFLOR Rose Farm Tour 1

I will be joining Alyson for her great meme FAVORITES ON THE FIRST on May 1, 2013 at,  http://thepolohouse.blogspot.com
 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!

  5. 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.

    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.
    Best,

  37. 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!

  63. Hello,
    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!

  64. 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.

  65. 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.

  80. Dearest Fabby,
    What a fabulous post about my most favorite flower; the ROSE! I enjoyed watching the video from www.altaflor.com 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...
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  83. 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!

  84. 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.
