Today


Be Still and Know


Today I am:

Ignoring my giant to do list and playing with these pretty roses in my garden....the ones I didn't expect to see as even a professional gardener looked at them a couple of months ago, shook his head and said "hmmm, they're struggling aren't they..."

Excited for the holidays - school's out in a couple of days.

Preparing for another art fair on Saturday.

Feeling very calm considering the amount I still have to do.

Trusting it will all come good......

*********************************************************************************

I love these pretty roses.  They smell gorgeous and remind me of the summers I used to spend picking up fallen rose petals and making 'perfume' with them.  Lots of half filled buckets of water and rotting petals that I honestly thought would make divine perfume that I could put in fancy bottles and bestow as luxurious gifts.

I miss those days.

  7. I had to smile at your childhood perfume-making experiments - such a lovely story. Love this subtle and delicate image - such a soft pink, full of blossoming ripeness.

  8. You could preserve the summer by making rose petal jam or jelly. I have just done that and both smell and taste are divine. I found a recipe on Anne's blog, Life in Mudspattered Boots.
