Blooms for the Winter Blues


I'm in desperate need of a reprieve from winter! Thank goodness warmer weather is apparent! It is difficult to believe that this gorgeous wintry wonderland  our city has become, will eventfully emerge into greenery and blossom in a few months time. 
I've filled the house with the floral scent of Jo Malone's 'Orange Blossom' candles and have been taking a look back at my photos of local gardens in summer; as well as some bountiful blooms from our vacations over the past few years - has been very therapeutic! (Please take note, these are my original photographs!)
Can you guess where these locations are? See the answer key at the end of this post...


Winter has taken hold all over the globe it seems!.....
~ Wishing you warm and sunny days ahead! ~
