Every thing's coming up roses...

Man cannot live by bread alone...


I rely on flowers to bring perfection to the table.
Blooms that radiate loveliness
colours that fill my soul with joy
home grown in The Humble Bungalow Garden...














Saturday's roses
nudging 
and 
shuffling for space
in a crystal ice bucket

It's been a busy weekend here in The Humble Bungalow.

On Canada Day
we went to a BBQ at the gorgeous heritage home of our BFF's.
watched the fireworks from our dining room window when we got home...

Happy 4th of July to our neighbours south of the border!

    1. The flowers practically arrange themselves...
      I think the secret is great vase, good flowers and plenty of fillers.

  12. I'm catching up with blogging after a two week absence. I just spoke with my mother last night, and her roses are growing wonderfully in spite of the rain and cool in the PNW. I just love your roses! Chester hasn't started batting practice with them, has he?

    1. Roses do love water so they are happy campers.
      Chester has tried to nibble the arrangements which makes it difficult to keep them on low tables!

  13. From me too: A Happy ( delated ) Canada Day!
    You pamper us with your wonderful roses and flowers, which seem ever so pretty in your care.
    Please don´t understand me wrong, but I just suddenly started to wonder, what´s the message you are trying to send through these lovely roses.
    Remember, I went through the long analysis ; )..

  14. Mette,

    No message in the rose posts..
    I just want to share their beauty.

    I find exquisite joy in growing, tending and arranging them.
    They feed my soul.

    Life for me is more full when I have a lovely rose in bloom.

  15. I think you did answer, maybe without realizing it, the question about message that Mette asked. Your joy in these flowers comes through in these posts and is so inspiring. I can tell how much they mean to you, add to your life, etc. In fact, as I've told you, you've inspired me to finally plant a designated rose garden. Area cleared and getting the soil ready. Happy Canada Day, it's the 4th of July here, and since we moved in yesterday, will be unpacking boxes all day....
