Glorious roses!

On Sunday I took myself off to one of my favourite places, Chart Farm, and picked a huge bunch of roses as a birthday treat to myself! I used them as decoration for my birthday get together and put them into plain glass jars all over the house. After the party I crammed them all into one vase and they have opened up into a mass of gorgeous, colourful blooms. I couldn’t help not want to share them with you!

    The rich colours are a complete utter riot! How fantastic they all look together.

    We are getting one last flush of autumn roses right now, so I am filling my studio and house with them wherever I can find a spot. Glorious perfume!

    I hope you had a lovely birthday, too!

    Chart is down the road from us and also a favourite place. The roses are so fragrant (and thorny- especially when I forget the gloves!) Lovely styling and photos, Lana.
