Roses from the garden
I am delighted with my new delicate blush pink rose that is flourishing at the moment. The flowers are large and very beautiful and remind me of a ballerinas tutu. I have been filling the house with vases of pretty bouquets of sweetness and it is wonderful to breathe in the scent
Named in memory of Empress Josephine, she purchased the famous Chateau de Malmaison and garden in 1799.
It is wonderful that Rose breeders like David Austin, have been able to preserve some of the Antique roses and today we can still pick the same pretty bouquets that Josephine clipped from her garden.
The rose has to be the most romantic flower, especially if it has a perfume and my favourite, a soft pastel colour.
Thank you to all who took the time to write such a kind note about my bears.
On Saturday the weather was fickle and with blustery wind and rain and with it also been a Farmers Market all people seemed to want to buy was their bacon and eggs, fruit and vegetables and flowers for the weekend.
Sadly there were no sales, but we had a fun time meeting and talking to some of the others who were brave enough to venture out.
Let us be grateful for people who make us happy, they are charming gardeners who make our souls blossom
~ Marcel Proust.
I hope your week is full of things that make you happy
