Hello sunshine! today is a welcome surprise to see a clear, bright blue sky, with the sun shinning, albeit it a little cool - I do love this weather.
Last week, has been cold here and between a few showers of rain I have been out in the garden.
I planted two new roses, a sweet Cecile Brunner climber ( which has the sweetest little pale pink rosebuds) and Souvenir de Malmaison, lily of the valley and some violets.
I had the Cecile Brunner growing in a previous house and always loved it.
Fingers crossed, hopefully I will be able to share some pretty flowers soon - I don't have a green thumb, so will see. Living near the sea and with clay like soil and then having a lack of water over the summer months is not ideal for good growing conditions in the garden.
Anyhow, sometimes I try to embrace what Mother Nature surprises us with - I love to look at beautiful things and lately I have been enjoying taking a few photos with my camera - so roses from the market were my subject.
The rose has to be the most romantic and delicate flower.
"Hope you have time to stop and smell the roses today"
Among the things you can give and still keep are your word, a smile and a grateful heart.
Enjoy your weekend
