Surrounded by love and sweet perfume...

I love little flower posie bouquets.
Today it's a tiny bundle of nigella and roses.
 Roses, well, roses speak for themselves...fragrant, gorgeous, romantic,
what more could a flower ask for?
Nigella is something other worldly.
Marine-like features, the most amazing shades of blue...
When the seed heads mature they look quite alien.
The common name is enough to make one sigh...
'Love in a mist.'
Right now, the bed where my niece and I planted our memorial
garden for my sister and aunt is full of these two beautiful roses
surrounded by the nigella...
 How perfect that the 'Love in a mist' seeded itself in this bed...
 Both roses have a most wonderful scent and I look forward to them maturing
and growing even taller and more beautiful next year..
 I'll let the Nigella seed itself again and provide
the 'Love in a mist' for Tracy and Aunt Ella...
