Who doesn't like a pretty dressing table ? especially with the scent of freshly cut flowers wafting though the whole house.
The last of the winter roses, a few blossoms braving the winter chills before John pruned them last week.
Here you can see HIS beloved old dog JB, a Bouvier named after Jacqueline (are you old enough to know who she was ?)
and then the violets arrived - lots of them !
oh bliss, oh joy - violets and daphne.
Don't the violets look wonderful on Kim Wilkie's book (he's a real star).
and here you can see HER beloved old dog, Ruffles !
Why hasn't HE got any violets ?
