sweet pickings

from the garden

some pretty flowers to brighten up a rainy day
they smell incredible too

One of the roses in the jug is this
 it's called 'William Lobb' 
and is a moss rose
I absolutely adore it
there is something enchanting about it

it's like a 'fairy-tale' rose
and has to be my favourite

Before I go I must say a BIG thank you to Fleur
for awarding my the 'Sunshine' award
I am very flattered and touched
so thank you lovely lady
you made my day
If you have a moment please pop over and say 'Hi'
 Fleur has a fabulous blog

more soon
BIG love

    (At first I thought that the rose plant was
    covered in lice, sorry...;D )
    Love, Mirjam.

  13. What a beautiful rose - I can almost smell it. I like putting flowers in little posies like yours rather than gigantic vases. It makes them look more loved and special. Have a good weekend. Lily. xxx
