Versailles in the garden




The gardens at Versailles were so expansive and amazing.  I cannot even imagine the creative minds that it took to make such a beautiful statement.  I plan on spending a little time tending the gardens this weekend here at home.

What about you?  What are you up to this weekend?

Working in the garden also. When I visit Versailles last year it was early spring and a cold rainy day, but the gardens were still beautiful.

Swoon!
Always amazes me how such beauty and incredible scent can come out of a few canes.

You'll also find me in the garden after a family wedding.

I wish I had a garden to work in but alas when we move that is high on my list! Cannot wait......love those pictures above....that house is utterly dreamy!!

I am sitting here in my daggy gardening outfit, with one foot out the door, to spend a delicious morning pottering in my garden too.

What is that heavenly rose? A bourbon of sorts? It's rose pruning time for me, so also a good chance to sneak some new plants in if I can hide them from my husband. He hates rose bushes (having come to grief on a thorny variety when a child) so I have to get very very sneaky. But those old fashioned varieties, with a heady scent....oh they makes my knees wobble.

What a terribly gorgeous rose. I love the summer time for those flowers.

“I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.”
- Eleanor Roosevelt
