simplicity, vegan cooking, gardening, style
There's nothing better than the first roses. We still have several weeks before we'll see any I think.
Exquisite and so nicely presented! And I see Frost's poem on your blackboard :)
So pretty! I'm jealous of all your beautiful roses!
Your roses are absolutely beautiful. Love! PS: Would you be willing to share where your drapes are from?... Had envisioned ones like this for my dining room and sunroom....
certainly! i bought them at pottery barn but this pattern is sold out. maybe if you can find a pb outlet or maybe on ebay.
Thanks so much! Love your decorating style - so inspirational.L
I look out my kitchen window every morning to see there's just one rose bloom. They're tucked away still, I guess until it finally warms up. Yours are gorgeous! I swear one day I'm going to live in gardener's cottage surrounded by old roses. That Frost poem is one all my favorites. Have a beautiful day!
How wonderful to be able to put your beautiful roses in your rooms to enjoy! I am so allergic to them so enjoying your images will just have to do:-)
What beautiful photos! I love the roses of course but each tableau is exquitsite.
Hi Sweetie, been thinking of you too. You roses are so divine. I adore them and you!xo
Just beautiful! I love having flowers in the house...I've been known to carry a full vase from room to room to be able to enjoy them if I'm in the kitchen or waking up in the morning!
Janet-Not only are the roses beautiful, but so is your home! Enjoy your weekend! :)
I can't even imagine a rose actually growing outside!These are gorgeous gorgeous, your photos are stunning. You might have a lot of hits this weekend because I for one am going to come back and look at them repeatedly.Have an awesome one Janet.xo
So gorgeous! Both my pretty pink rose bushes died last year in all the heat despite daily watering and now I have small red roses from the roots. The bushes are quite large but I am not into little red roses....but I guess they are hardy. I miss my big pink ones.
Dear Janet,I garden with haphazard abandon in New England...but have not delved into roses. I do not know if the same varieties you have would do well elsewhere but would be interested to hear which ones you particularly like. I am mad for fragrance, not just physical perfection. In fact, not altogether attracted to the over-hybridized roses. I dream of ramblers but am afraid they could take over my house!Lovely photos--as I write this I can almost smell them but it is actually the scent of hyacinths and late daffodils and viburnum carlesii that is wafting by on the garden breeze. I'd love roses in the bathroom !
i wish i could give you names of these roses but they are at least 100 years old and don't have tags. their fragrance will knock you over.:)
Those are gorgeous - have a fantastic weekend
Oh, so beautiful!
the colors are breathtaking! And I love your cheetah sweater!
Your roses look amazing Janet. It's makes me look forward to see mine in bloom. I have to be patience though. I think it will be two months before I can see the first flowers.Happy weekend!Madelief x
Janet - I love your home, I feel at peace just looking at these photos!!
Hello Janet:Lovely, lovely, lovely. But is it not terribly early?Kellemes hétvégétT
It will be mid June before mine pop out but they steno thing like yours, I'm lucky if I get a handful all year, I love roses.
beautiful janet.and i LOVE that brown floral pillowcase. your home has such class....!!!!happy weekend hon.xox
Janet love all of your bouquets. I think my favorite is the one on the wash basin. I always think roses look best in the simplest containers. I can never decide whether to cut them or admire them throughout the window. My dad always says if you cut them you get more.Enjoy your weekend!Kim:)
The roses are gorgeous as are the vignettes. Enjoy your weekend!
What a lovely way to start the weekend...Getting to see the first explosion of The Gardener's Cottage Roses. It's awesome.I remember last year how you said their fragrance was so full that at one point you moved the bouquets outside. Now THAT would be just... amazing! You, dear Janet, are truly blessed.-Suzanne in Illinois
Gorgeous roses, lovely home.
the roses are beautiful, but your styling and photos are "FAB" (just like the online membership shopping site featuring products for up to 70% off) too. Have a great weekend.
Beautiful roses and beautiful photographs Janet! Can not believe your roses are in bloom already- our trees are "just" starting to leaf out!! I wish you and Larry a wonderful weekend and I send you a hug;) and a margarita!!! xoxoj.
Your roses are so pretty. It's so nice to see such an abundance of blooms al over the house.I resorted to buying some tangerine roses yesterday as it will be a month before any of mine will bud.
beautiful. roses are my favorite and always remind me of my mother. have a wonderful weekend janet!
Janet - How do you take such wonderful photos!?!
thank you lisa, but honestly it is a crapshoot everytime i pick up my camera. i'm not kidding!
Indeed, you pay perfection to the detailing. Lovely flower arrangements.
Janet, Your roses are beautiful. I love all the colors. Smiles to you, Susie(She Junks)
Beautiful! We're not seeing those in NE yet!
Janet, I love your roses so much! Wish I have a rose garden to be able to have fresh roses all the time. Simply beautiful!
Beautiful roses . . .and leopard glasses and pearls! You EXUDE sophistication. Your home is soooo clean and fresh looking, it is all sooooo lovely.Louise
Your house is like a honeymoon-suite. :-)In Vienna lilacs are in bloom. Maybe you want to take a look, I took some photos. Aren't we lucky to live on a planet where flowers bloom.
Your photos are beautiful and I bet the roses smell just lovely!
Yum. You two are perfect caretakers.And how nice you inspire us to take better care of ourslves.xo Jane
Dear Janet, your roses are beautiful, here no roses yet , just some very wet, bedraggled pansies in pots, courtesy of Grandma Whacker, bless her, the only real gardener round here! Meanwhile, in an exciting lifestyle development, we all have nits. Lovely.
Gorgeous! I've been inspired by your roses for awhile; currently have a few rose bushes in my yard, but went ahead last week and ordered a few from the Antique Rose Emporium. They are due to arrive this week. Keeping my green thumbs crossed that they do well here in Connecticut!
Beautiful roses Janet! I'm getting endless pleasure from all the roses in my garden right now. They are SO big, these first blooms, and the scents are spectacular!
I'm envious as we are still 2 months away from being able to breathe in the sweetness of a rose. For now I'll just enjoy the lovely hyacinths:) Thanx for sharing your lovely roses.
Absolutely stunning roses Janet and the arrangements look so pretty in your house. Your teasing me though with THOSE sunglasses in the first photograph !!!! ;-) XX
Gorgeous. I especially love the orange-y/peach-y ones. Do you know any of their names?
Oooh just realised - such a grammatical error in my comment!! Meant to be "you're teasing me" and I thought I never made that mistake - I had better go to the bottom of the class! Sarah x
Janet, your roses are enviable! Mine opened this week in a profusion of pale pink. Despite the longing to clip and bring them inside, I end up feeling guilty for snipping them because they don't hold up very well in a vase. How do you make your blooms last?Anne
Hi there, I just found your blog today and I love your style and posts! I was wondering what kind of soap is the one you've featured in the bath picture above on this post? It looks absolutely gorgeous in a sort of naturally-occurring teal and brown leopard-like pattern. Cheers!
i have forgotten the name of the soap but i'll find out and post it here. thanks for reading!
kindness is never out of style.
