Garden of Eden

On my morning walk today, 


this precious cottage rose garden took my breath away.


When I was finished with my walk, I came back to this historic neighborhood and this tiny white cottage {which I was told, was not so tiny after all} with my camera to capture a few of these climbing roses.  I was fortunate to meet and talk to the charming "goddess" of the garden who was tending to her roses {as she does every morning in order to create and maintain this beauty}.


She invited me to return to make more photographs and see her hydrangea garden in back, which I will very soon.  This is one of the prettiest gardens I have seen in Macon in the eleven years that I have lived here.


Lovely.

May flowers.

Springtime in the South.

Happy Mother's Day weekend to all the mothers out there and a special thank you to the Garden Goddess who shared her little Garden of Eden with me.  {She showed me her Eden roses growing and climbing on her white picket fence, so I decided to call her garden the Garden of Eden, not to mention that it was a rose paradise!}

Ciao amici,
Suzanne

PS
By the way, these photographs are not retouched.  As soon as I got home, I downloaded them from my camera to my computer and then posted them here to share with you as soon as I could.  Are they gorgeous, or what?!?

Thank you both for stopping by.

Margie, I cannot wait either! I am going to try to do this sometime in May before all the flowers wilt in the Southern heat.

Stephanie, thank you for your visit to my blog and letting me know that you were here!

Hope you both had a lovely weekend.

Ciao, ciao,
Suzanne
