White Roses


I love the voluptuous, yet kind of tousled look of fresh garden roses. One of my neighbors' balcony is covered in them this spring - she's an expert gardener, with wonderful taste. The roses are just beautiful.

I haven't been very present online these past few days... Blame it some important news I'll be announcing soon...
