...unless it's a New Dawn rose!
My New Dawn rose bush is finally starting to take off!
It's taken quite a while, but it was worth the wait.
The pale pink buds open into...
...the most amazing roses, creamy white with just a hint of blush.
...paired with small aqua bottles
(like this old Mellin's Infant Food bottle I found at Fairground Antiques years ago).
While visiting a relative on the Cape last week, hubby and I stopped for lunch
at a wonderful restaurant in East Dennis, The Marshside.
And just look what was blooming profusely!
I don't know what I enjoyed more, my lunch or the gorgeous shrub and flower gardens
surrounding the restaurant.
Trellis after trellis overflowing with New Dawn roses... Be still my heart.
I wonder if mine will ever look this good?
(Are you drooling, Claudia? I know you love New Dawn as much as I do!)
Does your heart skip a beat for hydrangeas rather than roses?
Then you are in for a treat!
So many colors, and all so beautiful!

As if the gardens out front aren't enough, this is the view of the marsh...
...looking through the floor to ceiling windows that line the back of the restaurant.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to live in one of those houses way off in the distance
and wake up to this view every day?
In closing, I thought I'd share my incredible lunch with you (photos, at least :)
A side salad...
...followed by the baked seafood casserole, green beans, and rice pilaf.
It was all d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!!!!!
Here's a link to The Marshside's website.
If you find yourself on the Cape, I highly recommend it!
I'm linking to Tracie's Cottage Garden Party at the lovely Fishtail Cottage
and Cindy's Show & Tell Friday at the beautiful My Romantic Home.
Have a wonderful week, everyone!
