A Thing Of Beauty!!!

I went out to try and get a pic of the new rose DD planted this year but I kept getting divebombed by bees so I quickly snipped a small branch and a couple of smaller peony heads to bring into the house.
The rose is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.
The buds are a deep sugar pink. The partly opened roses are cream flushed with pink and then fully open they are just a gorgeous plain cream.....and the scent is just divine.....strong but not over powering.
It is planted next to the peony and the two together look like something from the pages of Country Life.....or they would if the weather hadn't ruined the peony.

It was very hot when I got up this morning so I have had a very leisurely breakfast in front of the fan. I need to move soon as I have a couple of jobs to get done before I go out to do a bit of shopping this afternoon.
I couldn't change the carpet tiles yesterday as I couldn't get the screws out of the bar that seperates them from the vinyl flooring in the working part of the kitchen but I did get the fire place painted and hung two pictures so that is two jobs crossed off which won't have to be done again. Still a few of those to go at and they will get done eventually.

The Doodles are off at the seaside for the weekend as DDIL found a bargainous break on Groupon. Looks like they chose a good weekend for it so I hope they have a good time.
I'm only going as far as the little town this afternoon but I think we'll find ourselves somewhere to sit out and have a coffee when the shopping is done.

Have a lovely weekend.

  2. What a beautiful little posy. I can't wait for my rose to flower. I'm hoping there will be enough to be able to snip a couple off for the house. Hope Marlowe and you son are feeling better. xx

    1. Aren't they just gorgeous?
      I'd love to have enough flowers and foliage to cut for bringing into the house so DD is working hard on that for me-x-

  3. I am going to move my Peonies this autumn, they are not enjoying their site at all. Just by my front door I have an old fashioned rose in the palest pink, it froths with flowers and has the most amazing perfume, enough to fill the house when I leave the door open.

    1. Our peony seems to love it's position between the old apricot tree and new rose. At some stage we will split it and move some into the front garden and see how it does there-x-

  4. Peonies are one of my favorite flowers. We have a bush in the back yard with dark pink ones. Ours have already bloomed and died. Their season is way too short!! xo

    1. I used to have a lovely dark pink one but it was very old and the flowers got smaller and smaller every year so it had to come out.
      Their season is definitely way too short-x-
