Twilight Delights!

I was playing with my camera yesterday, simply enjoying this romantic vignette...


I love the blazing flames at twilight, especially when the air is bracing and smells of freshly cut grass...
I grouped some monochrome candles and  a pretty bouquet of Vendela roses on a glass tray, covered in antique lace.

By the way, I passionately love Vendela roses, they were used in profusion on my Wedding day, together with white hydrangeas, Monstera leaves and ivy!

My little princess was out there with me in the garden, and actually she was pleasantly snoozing when I woke her up putting the rose bouquet right near her head! :( She's too sweet to grumble at me... and posed for me!

'Another one!'

'Oh, pleeease, hurry up! I am sooo tired!!'...

Monica.

  17. Candles & roses always spell romance, of course the dog needed to show his love too!
