bouquet of roses from the garden - my french country home

After a fun but fairly busy week, the weekend has arrived and is looking surprisingly calm.  Nothing urgent on my to-do list, at least nothing that cannot wait until Monday….

Time for a little flower therapy, which this week takes the form of a bouquet from the garden, where the roses have bravely resisted the week’s ridiculous heatwave, and are flowering abundantly.

I used one of my very favorite vases, I love the slightly tarnished silver and the size and shape of this antique urn, and the grid makes if so easy to arrange the stems.   I mixed in with the roses some Lady’s Mantle, fresh mint leaves, Nigella seed heads and a couple of small off-white peonies.

I’m cursing myself for never having been more disciplined about leaving name tags on my roses, because this pale pink variety is a favourite that I would happily repeat, if only I knew what it was called!   Do you think it is an Abraham Darby?…

This little bouquet will only last a couple of days, but that is fine.  I love ephemera, and the sight of these gentle pinks and off whites is the first thing I see as I step inside from the garden.

I hope you’re having a good weekend, and that you find a moment for your own favorite therapy time …. and if want to tell me what form that takes, then I’d love to hear.
