Summer Blooms

"Flowers always make people
better, happier, and more helpful;
they are sunshine, food and medicine
for the soul." 
           ~Luther Burbank

  I have been jealous looking at all of the beautiful peonies and roses that I have seen people bringing into their homes lately! I can't grow peonies in my garden and they are one of my favourite flowers. I went to my favourite florist this week, Amborella, and brought home a small bouquet of fresh blooms to lift my spirits. The palest pink roses I have ever seen and a lovely white peony. I put them in a pretty vintage glass vase and they have bloomed beautifully all week. This morning I put the roses in a bowl where they are floating dreamily. I hope that everyone has a beautiful weekend! Remember - take time to smell the roses!

  1. Oh Jennelise, your soft pink roses are gorgeous, as are all the photos! I can almost smell their sweet scent. I have those same Wexford water goblets. If it makes you feel any better, I can't grow roses either!
    Have a great weekend!
