Smelling The Roses

Talk about frustration.  In my little world at the moment FRUSTRATION = NBN !!  OMG I have tried to post this post for days.  It drops in and out more often than .....  well I won't go there but you know what I mean.

All of my photo's are out of order but I am not going to be too fussy - I just want to post something.

One of my favourite things in the spring is walking around the garden each week with my scissors and basket and looking at the flowers that mother nature has blessed me with for the week.

In this bunch is my first bloom of lilac in over 12 years.  I planted two trees over 2 years ago and one has finally given me some blooms.  Only roses steal my heart more than Lilac.  The scent is intoxicating and I just love it.  I recently read that they enjoy lime so the next time I am at the nursery I will get them some and hopefully I will be blessed with many more blooms.

My garden currently has many roses, bottle brushes, waratahs, lavender, geraniums, ericas and so much more,

It truly is a wonderful experience walking around the garden and enjoying it.

And most of my roses are the older variety and have devine perfume.

So now I have many vases scattered around home full of beautiful blooms.

Last week I spent a full day at our local Royal show exhibiting my burmese cats.  I over estimated my capabilities and spent the next 3 days in bed recovering.  So to avoid any extended time in bed this week I am taking it very easy.  I have spent the morning stitching a new project to be released in 2019 and this afternoon have sat in the sunshine reading this fantastic book gifted to me many years ago by my darling friend Jenny.

I read it when she first gifted it to me but decided to revisit its pages as I love it so much.  I am hoping to get some banana bread made this week from the browning bananas in the fruit bowl and maybe some more stitching.

What will you be getting up to ?

What glorious blooms in your garden! I have never seen lilac for real so do not know their fragrance, but I’m en ious of your old roses. There’s no fragrance quite as beautiful. 🌹
I’m so happy you’re enjoying the book for a second time. Now rest up my dear friend. 💕
