Smelling the roses



This morning…

I virtually found myself enrobed in flowers

armfuls and armfuls of beauty

I swear I could smell them through the screen

I visited a beautiful site

Casa dulce Hogar Home sweet home

published by a beautiful woman and lover of all things flora.

Her home is tucked up high in the protective arms of the Andes Mountains

in Chile

Oh so lovely, Linda! I love that interior shot (well, all of them, but that one especially!). I saw some gorgeous hot pink and orange roses at a B and B here yesterday, they were breathtaking. Wish I could cultivate some of my own, maybe I should give it a try! Have a wonderful day!

I love Maria because of all the beauty she posts. Hers was one of the very first blogs to go on my roll! So inspiring!!!

GASP! That's my kind of place! And the big blue pot in the first photo? I have one nearly identical to it. Bought it last year and can't wait to incorporate it into the landscaping plans!

Hola Linda, thank you so much for this mention, I`m so glad and honored you liked my garden and home. I love gardening and I think my flowers do appreciate the compost I make with all the organics from the kitchen.
Muchos cariños,
Maria Cecilia
