Vintage Roses At The End Of Another Lovely May

I thought I would share the last of the first blush of roses with you. It was a promising start before an unusual freeze this spring, but we have enjoyed a few gorgeous displays so far.

The white roses produced the best, but I have gathered up more colorful roses of a different kind to keep them company.

It's been awhile since I sat in the garden with a few of my favorite teacups and prints. I have layered an old vintage curtain of roses underneath.

I posted about the PARIS in BLOOM book earlier in the season, and just had to possess the other rose book by Georgianna Lane, VINTAGE ROSES. Such a treat!

The perfect time of day for a little break under the trees at the end of another beautiful May. 

This vintage panel only sees sunshine a couple of times of year as if it has its own spring and summer blooming. . . .

We may be far from the ocean, but a little bit of sea glass blue keeps things cool before a long hot week ahead settles in.

Thanks for joining me and my vintage roses for a cheery soiree under the cottonwood trees!

So nice that you stopped by!

Wishing you many rosey days ahead!



  1. It has been a beautiful May here also, but I think you have me beat, Jacqueline.

  2. Beautiful tablescape!Stunning roses!!!

  3. You can' theatre roses can you? Are they fragrant?

  4. Georgina Malcolm actually said... You can't beat roses can you. iPads eh? Minds of their own.

  5. What a sweet post. Love the roses, sea glass and cabbage rose fabric. I just won the Paris in Bloom book from a blogger and have been enjoying it! We are having a great spring with great weather. My one rose bush is growing nicely but no blooms just yet!

  6. So lovely Jacqueline! You post invites one into your garden...I'd love to stay for tea!

  7. Nice to see flowers we are just starting winter and it's cold.

  8. Your beautiful table and flowers are a wonderful way to celebrate yet another gorgeous Georgiana Lane book. I'd be delighted to take a seat at that table any day -- and I'll bet it all smells fabulous!

  9. Looks like lots of romantic cottage garden dinning is in your days ahead... This is beautifully romantic Jacqueline, I too am getting my garden in shape for more entertaining outside this summer.

    Love your table set with roses and more roses, you always inspire linen filled vintage beauty.
