Rosalee Cottage

My park bench under the Albertine rose. The smell is so pretty, like apples?

Got the bug!
Am I obsessive?
Camera shutter worn out!
Computer suffering overload!
Did I take another 500 photos today?
Back up falling behind? :(
Can’t decide what to upload?
Yes that’s me!

  • Hi there Colleen, thank you so much for the lovely comment. Hope you’re well? Haven’t chatted for ages, life has been so hectic on this end, today it’s raining so I’m trying to play catch up with my friends on RB.

    What a delightful little bench. Beautifully captured.

  • Hi Bunny, thank you, that’s the park bench hubby and I built for Mothers Day. Like my Albertine, it only comes out once a year but it’s one of my favourite roses in the garden. It’s about as big as a car I suppose! lOL!

    Oh, this looks so inviting!!!

  • Hi Baby, thank you! :) Well come on over and we can have a cuppa out in the garden, all my roses are looking beautiful at the moment. it’s a cooler day here today, yesterday they did melt in the heat but I’ve already been out this morning deadheading the melted ones.

    Hope you’re well?

    How romantic and pretty! Such a beautifully composed scene! You have a wonderful garden you lucky girl! Did you make this bench?

  • Hi Angie, thank you girlfriend, yes this is the park bench hubby and I built back in May for Mothers Day, well I had to finish it as hubby said I wasn’t his mother and he didn’t know why he got stuck with building it! LOL! How are things there in the states? Hope you’re OK? It’s been shocking to see on the news.

    Let us know if you’re OK.

  • Hi there Teresa, thank you so much for the feature and the kind words! :) Just wish I could add the smell here, at the moment it’s just beautiful and the fragrance is drifting through the garden with the honeysuckle.
