The roses in my garden are in full bloom , so to compliment their profusion of colours I am
wearing a top by OBI from New Zealand with a floral Oriental vibe paired with one of my ever
faithful Moyuru pieces. I have( rather predictably) added a black and white necklace and vintage
white earrings, my recently acquired Preen sunglasses and a vintage black hat.
To quote that well known song , two of my favourite things , a stack of bangles and old roses. This dear little climbing rose is Adelaide d’Orleans and was bred in France in the first half of the nineteenth century.As a bit of a history buff I am as fascinated by the history of these roses almost as much as I am entranced by their shapes, colour and intoxicating perfume.
The bangles on the other hand are all relatively new, the three similar I purchased at a bazaar in a side
street in Paris for only a few Euros each and the orange one has been with me for a while and to be honest I have no idea of its origin.
The rose behind me is New Dawn and this is quite relevant as this is my first post on a new computer.So apologies if this post is a little awry as all my usual editing tools are on the old
computer. Soon I hope to give Grownupglamour a much needed makover, any input would be
I will leave you with this one of me enjoying the beautiful Bourbon rose, Variegata di Bologna.
