On certain days...



...You don't need more than this.


...With the promise of this.


Today is one of those days.


Have a wonderful week ahead everyone!

  1. Where did you get these roses? Beautiful!! Thank you for the reminder of simplicity ("keep it simple", a program of mine preaches), gratitude, and mindfulness, which is, in my humble opinion, the main theme of your beautiful blog! Thank you for getting my week off to a lovely start - the only thing that would make it better is if you were here!

    1. Oooh, I wish I were there too! Have been missing you so much. And I got that mini-rose bush at the grocery store for 2.90€. :)

    1. Looking at the photos again on my laptop screen (while sitting next to the real thing) they look too bright! It really is the palest blush possible...

  9. I was going to ask which variety it is too, but have just spotted your answer to Gina. Maybe Just Joey? Or Julia's Rose???? Would love to know because it is the most heavenly colour. Importantly, does it have a scent too?

    1. No scent! At all! But I wouldn't even expect one from a grocery store rose. They do make me happy though...

    1. Woot! Woot! Thanks for the note and the jazzy post! I am going to listen to your list this afternoon as I tackle the absolutely mountainous pile of ironing--ahhhh, the glamour of life in Provence. ;)

    1. Oh, "team gloria".....I was listening to that song (the entire lyrics to which I could quote at the drop of a hat) last night....marvelling as ever at that one particular harmony passage towards the end when Emmylou Harris soaringly joins in on "And the sky is turning red".

      It's not exactly a "romantic" song, is it? I do love it, though.

      I expect you know her song "Heavenly Day". I particularly like her saying (as she generally does in concert) "This is the only love song I've ever written. I wrote it for my DAWG....and that's the TRUTH".


      This irremiably southern man's only, chronically niggling discontent with Patty Griffith (whom I otherwise admire beyond measure) is that accent she's affected. The woman was raised in danged MAINE, after all. that's a long way from El Paso, to say the least.

  13. This was the perfect post for me to read on a Wednesday. I'm just about to head out to meet the French teen-agers, the darling things, and needed a moment of zen looking at this gorgeous rose.

    Thank you, Heather...so much more than you know.
