  1. The gum leaves display looks amazing and the roses are a real delight.

  2. Oooh, I almost envy your lovely summergarden and still so many it. The gum leaves in the bucket show pretty too and I suppose the fragrance of the leaves is nice.

  3. You are lucky to have sunshine!

  4. Your roses are so lovely they took my breath away. I love vintage garden tools too. I would love for you to link up your posts each week to the Vintage Charm party. It runs from Thursdays 8:00am EST until Monday 8:00am EST. If you would like to join the current party you can link here

  5. Hi, the spinning gum is my fave gum, lasts for ever and dries so beautifully, your roses look great too.
    Best wishes Lillian

  6. It's hard to believe you have blooming beautiful flowers and we had our first really cold weather this morning -12 below zero and yesterday snow, I got stuck in my daughters drive way

  7. I love vintage gardens. Your garden looks amazing and the roses are beautiful.

  8. Beautiful roses - they have brightened my day so I can go forth in the 20F degree morning.

  9. I can almost smell those roses! Gorgeous! {And, you take such nice photos, too!}

  10. Hi Meg,
    Our paths have crossed before but it has been a long time. What beautiful pics
    you have taken here, all so pretty..............Lovely countryside and wonderful
    roses, I love roses, course, I am a flower lover and hard to find a flower I don't unless it is stinky like Lantana or Marigolds, but I still think the
    flowers are pretty! lol

    Now tell me.......what kind of bird is that in picture #3, is it a parrot??
    He is a beauty whatever he is.........

    Blessings for a Happy, Healthy and Hopeful New Year,

  11. Beautiful roses and garden


  12. What a georgeous garden! I love your roses and the romantic fell of it.

    I am so envious, we have really small garden since moving to the Netherlands. We are just waiting for a landscaper to lay a patio for us. Hopefully I can inject a little bit of a romantic feel into mine once it has been neatened up.


I love to hear from you and appreciate your messages. Meg xx
