Just arrived home. I spent four beautiful days in The Cotswolds, enjoying all things green and pleasant, that England has to offer: lush gardens, far reaching views and lots and lots of charity shops. I bought a whole new wardrobe over there ;-)! I will show some of it on my blog soon!
Just before I left for the UK, I went to the garden, to water the tomatoes and cucumbers in the greenhouse and to see how the roses were doing. It was raining non stop, but I did not mind in the least. I love the smell of wet earth and somehow the colours look more vibrant on a rainy day.
The roses looked amazing! More and more are in flower. As always I spent more time there, than I initially planned. When you are surrounded by so many colourful flowers, it's difficult to contain oneself. I simply have to pick them! Off course, the fact that they are all in my own garden, makes it easier :-) I made two lovely bouquets. In one of my next post I will show you how they looked like, but I thought I would already give you a preview. Hence my first photo!!
A warm Hello to Jane and Lance's friends, who popped over to visit! It's a joy to meet you! I haven't been able to visit you yet, but I will try :-)
Enjoy the rest of your week!
The rose around my garden house and on photo number 16 is called 'New Dawn', the blueish purple rose which you can see clearly on my last photo: 'Rhapsody in blue', the lilac one on my fifth photo: 'Waltz time' , the lilac one among the clematis on my 10th photo 'Indigoletta'.
