I am utterly enchanted by the exquisite, delicacy of the sweetly fragrant lily of the valley.
Hope renewed!! some of the young woman out there are writing the sweetest, most eloquent, delightful & heartfelt blogs. I could not help but fall in love with a blog entitled she would have liked wings, now could I?!! Demure Folk, (toile) & The Simple Life are three web logs (I learnt that the other day...that's where the word blog comes from in all it's ugliness) by the dearest girls and of course an endless abundance is being written by a fine young chap
I am equally besotted with a heritage rose growing on my front fence. Today I saw a couple walking by who stopped to stare, captivated by the beauty of my Souvenir de la Malmaison, just as am I.
.. the 'Souvenir de la Malmaison' rose was given to Napoleon by the Empress Josephine to bring him back safely from war. it was claimed to resemble Napoleon's hat and was also carried by French soldiers in the Battle of Waterloo to protect them. The 'Souvenir de la Malmaison' is named after Josephine's garden in Malmaison near Paris."
once again, the little jug
& saucer from my
market last weekend
worked really well to
hold small roses...dear
little Cecile Brunner
soon the winds will come & blow all the blossoms away as if the world were a bride, to be drenched with delicate petals of blessing!
Thanks so much for visiting I loved having you here.
