A Ritzy Rose Idea.

Well, I had Tea at the Ritz-Carlton this week! In New Orleans.
Very Nice.

And I loved the way they presented the flowers on the Tea Table.

They took a little round vase. Filled the bottom with little clear glass pebbles.  The kind you find at the Craft stores in bags. Filled it with water and stuck a pretty Rose inside the Vase.

The green strip you see around the jar is a piece of border grass or something like it.

I am in search of such a vase.  It was very effective on the Table.

The Courtyard in the Hotel was beautiful.  

I love Courtyards and New Orleans is famous for them!

Heritage in Cool(er) Weather!

Heritage from David Austin.  I talk about this Rose alot.  I love this Rose.  

And I think it smells even stronger in the cooler weather! 
 Is that possible or am I imagining it?

I plucked a bunch of Roses and  stuck them in a vase of water.  Then I went around finding more vases so I could stick them around my house in different places.  And see them everywhere!

Just one Rose here.  I walk by this table every time I go into the kitchen.

It makes me happy.

Breakfast In My Garden

You can see my Morning Glories open - too early in the day for the Passion Flowers!
My Sister was here for a visit recently.
We had breakfast in myGarden.

My Sister and Strider The Brown Dog.

Everything is  best of all when your sitting in a Garden!

Especially in good company.

Strider agrees!
