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.

Beautiful roses! I wish I could feel their perfume…Stylish as always, Jill! Adorable bangles and lovely top!
So kind of you Olga, the roses are at their peak flowering at the moment and my garden is full of their intoxicating scent.
These photos are especially beautiful and enchanting – two of your favorite things work so well together! I really like this combination. The sculptural details – the jewelry, the hat, – with this delicate blouse create such a great contrast. I am always fascinated with your artistic style, Jill! And your garden is amazing!Much love!
Thank you dear Natalia, glad you enjoyed the garden in full bloom. I must admit to sometimes being rather surprised how a variety of different items all come together, that's the fun of it all isn't it, not to take it all too seriously.
Beautiful pics, and how gorgeous are your roses? Lovely hat, blouse and bangles too. xox-Pattihttp://notdeadyetstyle.com
Many thanks for your always kind words Patti. This year has been a very good year for the roses, they all are blooming so beautifully.
Your garden is just amazing! I'm so impressed! That blouse is so pretty too! 🙂
You are so kind Laurie , I have had this blouse for some time , it just was perfect with the garden.
Another lovely outfit. Your top looks like a hand painted silk artwork, and I had a New Dawn rose in my last house, unfortunately we didn't bring it with us, I do miss my roses.
So good to hear from you again , sounds like you are just so busy . New Dawn is such a pretty rose isn't it , I love its pale pink blooms. Maybe in time some more roses will happen.
Beautiful roses. It is obvious that your gardening skills are just as great as your styling skills.
Thank you so much Tiina that is such a great compliment.
Just like your lovely rose garden, your outfit is a little bit historical and a little bit modern and a whole lot wonderful. The painted top with with your adorable pointy beanie are perfection.
Connie, you have summed me up perfectly a bit of old and new, thats me.I must admit to liking the painted look of this top.Thank you my dear.

I can smell their fragrances, Jill. Your garden looks a perfumed delight. And you compliment your garden beautifully. xx
