I met a new friend today. Her name is Armena and she is an artist and a gardener for some of the homes on our walk to the beach!
She keeps the most beautiful roses, and after we chatted about her rose-tending secrets, she snipped off this beauty for me:
At first glance it almost looks like a peony with its frilly pink petals. But it’s a rose (though she doesn’t know the variety) and it smells like French-milled soap! It reminds me of the beautiful roses we saw at Versailles.
And now it’s sitting in our living room looking oh so pretty 🙂
Happy Friday, y’all!
