I found this antique mercury glass frame at a fair a while ago with a  photo  of a fierce looking Edwardian lady in it , and I finally got around to making a copy of my great grandparents wedding photo, to replace  it. Much nicer!

Thank heavens Summer is drawing to a close although more heatwaves is probably still on the cards
The last of the summer roses opening and it's time to feed them for autumn

  1. Your roses are looking gorgeous.Love the Romantic wedding photo of your grandparents.

  2. Lovely roses, Meg. My husband doesn't like them because of the thorns but I often go to the State Rose Garden which isn't far from here. The roses there are beautiful.

    1. My most beautiful rose is Nahema which is totally thornless with a divine fragrance xxx

  3. Hmmm, I might just have to do some arm twisting then as roses grow well here ;-)

  4. So pretty to put your own grandparents in the old frame, love romantic picturers.
    Your roses are going on and on they are really doing great.

  5. always enjoy your photos of the girls strolling in the garden and of the most- handsome Sascha...great close-up...

    1. It's the first time in almost 2 weeks there is 4 of them together as Gertie has been broody all that time xxx

  6. My roses are not blossoming yet. Nothing is. I love old family photos.

  7. What is it about old photographs that makes them so sweet? Probably because a phot was so rare in those days. That being said, I am just bonkers about your photos. Keep 'em coming.

  8. What a gorgeous view you have! We have been dealing with winter so your photos are a breath of fresh air. Love the photo and I also noted the ballet shoes nearby. Lovely! Thanks SO much for stopping by to share it all with Let's Talk Vintage!

  9. I absolutely love the mercury glass picture frame
