We had another open house this morning so it was up early and Mop, Sweep, Dust and De Cluttering type activities here. On Thursday I took a trip to a near by Garden centre to but a water loving shrub for our soggy slow draining spot in the yard. While I was there I opted to take this hot pink Ivy leaf Geranium rather than buy table flowers for the open house I put it in a plain deep decorative pot so I can swap it out for something else later.

I hit up the garden in the overlooked areas and got these two toned miniature and old fashioned small red roses. I think the pink and white ones are technically a neighbours, they grow between our two driveways.
Something sharp and a good dash of colour, a last minute morning addition for the bathroom. I felt a little guilty taking thse from the bee's and honey eaters luckily there are plenty with a very fully laden tree.

Something more Classic and Elegant for the bedside table, a big crystal vase full of White Iceberg Roses.
Just a point of interest and little bit of history; some of the lookers at our house today were the original owners who shared with the agent that they bought it in 1970, it was brand new then, for ( I think it was ) $14,000.00, they were just here for a bit of a look and reminisce. They recalled to him how outraged they were when their mortgage payments jumped up to $79.00 a month. : )
Hope you are having a lovely Weekend what ever you are up to : )
