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.


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,

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?!?
