simply beautiful












What do you think of my neighbors rose garden? Pretty spectacular! Ms. Katherine is the best kind of gardener, she shares her knowledge and plant cuttings with other fellow gardeners. Walking past her little cottage is part of my morning ritual and a simple joy that brightens my day.

  2. Absolutely beautiful. I think that's my favorite combination...a white picket fence with lots of roses cascading over it. And what a gorgeous home. xoTrina

  7. Oh My!! I was so fixated on the first picture that when I got to the second one, I was in awe! She has created a fence of roses! It's absolutely breathtaking - I can only imagine how beautiful the view out her front windows must be and the bouquets she must have in every room of her house. Her house...is an adorable cottage. I love the color and the shutters. Beautiful pictures - I guess I spoke to soon! :)

  11. It is beautiful. I have just been brave and ordered my first ever lot of roses to plant. They'll arrive in June. I went for pink ( of course!) old fashioned ones with lots of fragrance. here's hoping I do them justice.
    Thanks for sharing.

  15. I've had to come back several times to look at this garden. I love this post because it's not about money, it not about something that someone has that another doesn't. It's about something that everyone can have without needing an architect, a designer or a big budget. It might take a little work, a little luck and a good six hours of sun but it's something that everyone can enjoy.

  18. This is idyllic, I wonder if she has thought of making greeting cards using these images? or you for that matter?
    Such a bounty of blooms.
    I'd probably set up my easel and paint it!

  21. Ooooo what lovely roses and what an enchanting picture they make! They reminded me of this picture of a house in my 2nd std english textbook. It had rose bushes, one of white roses and the other red, on either side of the entrance steps of a cute cottage. The picture was an illustration for the fairy tale of snowwhite and rosered. The picture of the cottage with the rose bushes has never left me and I always dream of having such rose bushes in front of my dream cottage. Today, thanks to you and your dear neighbour I was able to see a pic OF A REAL COTTAGE WITH REAL ROSE BUSHES..... a pic which was so close to what I had imagined in my childhood. Thank you very much!

  23. Hi J, I am so jealous of your neighbour's fence- she must get a lot of SUN! Meanwhile I've done a post about the Black and Spiro sale. Janet. It was the BOMB. So many lovely discounted things but the CRUSH!!! You literally could not move for glamorous women fighting for bargains. I got there an hour before it opened and was the 4th person inside but it was crazy crowded. I got 2 porcelain products (a ginger jar and bowl), a silver dove, a cushion, some fabric, and a candle lamp thing. I met Anna Spiro-she said "are you Faux Fuchsia?" (my friend works with her and told her about my blog the other day) it was so funny. Wish you could 've been there. xxxx

  24. I absolutely love this picket fence rose garden. So wish I had the ability to grow roses like this. The humidity in Georgia is so hard on roses....but if there's a will, there's a way...right?

  25. It is indeed beautiful Janet!! How lucky that you get to see it everyday! The house and gardens have such a sweet, gentle energy about them. Love radiates!
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  31. It's me again. Thank you for visiting and commenting. I had to come back both to become a follower and to tell you I have been reading your older posts and am so intrigued by the hard changes you are making in your life. Even in the midst of a few busy days I've been pondering over the rightness of your actions.
