Everything is Coming up Roses

It was my birthday on Halloween and I was given some money by my Mum...I intended to buy shoes but when I spied this meat platter I had to have it. It's huge and heavy about 1850 and in perfect condition and matches a couple of pieces I already have

my darling husband spoiled me and bought me  a new camera as he knows how much I am enjoying taking pics

David made new  pink rose garden with a path for me in winter  and they are now all opening...what a joy they are to me

  3. First congratulations with your birthday, such a great photos again. The platter you bought is stunning and all these roses blooming, when I see this I´m longing to spring and my own roses blooming again, but it´s only autumn and only a few roses are still showing a flower. I´m always enjoying your pictures of the beautiful views, your garden and the hens. Love it.

  4. Happy belated birthday! The platter you bought is absolutely beautiful. And what a lucky woman you are to receive that awesome camera as a gift from your hubby. Your land and flowers are so pretty...looks like something you'd only see in a book. Stunning.

  5. What a lovely garden and view!!!

  6. I have an obsession with flowers, they are so beautiful! The view is just as amazing!

  8. Oh my gosh. Australian flowers in the Spring!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Loving the Clematis! We hope to grow some at our new house when spring comes around (in North Carolina, USA)! Your roses and peony are beautiful, too. They would be a welcomed scent as we float into Fall!

  10. Oh those roses are pure romance. Beautiful photos. Nice touch from hubby. Enjoy your new camera.

    PS. Love the chics.

  13. Your garden is looking beautiful! Happy belated birthday to you, Meg. I think I'd be choosing a pretty platter over shoes too, lol. Thanks so much for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

  14. I adore the muted colours in the plate. I can see why it caught your eye. The gardens look wonderful and I especially like your purple leaved trees! xx

  16. just found you from browsing the ' Vintage Inspiration Party' happy belated birthday, love your vintage oval plate choice instead of shoes. You have some beautiful roses in your lovely garden. I've made a note of some, as we are planning to create a rose bed for next year. I'm looking forward to following you.
