We paid a visit to our son and his family at the weekend
Only the two older children were home
Kelly made us a cup of tea
and her older brother Keelan picked us a huge pumpkin
from his veggie patch and on the way out asked if I would like
a bunch of roses from their front garden
They are renting the house while their new one is being built
It was once owned by an Italian family.
Well you know how the older generation of Italian families love their gardening
As well as vegetables they usually grow roses out front,
You would have to see the roses in this garden to believe it
There are about 2 dozen bushes,all different colours.
The 90 yr old man next door has the same. He is Italian too.
They sure know how to garden.
I wish I had my camera with me, but didn't
This is the bunch I picked. The scent fills the house
As they started to wilt the petals were dropping. Well I couldn't
throw them away,the scent was intoxicating.
I filled lots of bowls around the house to enjoy them longer.
I refreshed some dried ones I already had from my garden
These are the ones from our garden
I tend to go for the paler pinks and golds
but I'm enjoying the brighter colours too that I brought home
I wish you could smell them from where you are
I'll be enjoying them for many more days, I think
Have a happy week
and join me at the linky parties.
The links are on my side bar.
