I always maintain that La Vie en Rose is in work in progress but perhaps this confection of a cottage is almost done since we both swear we certainly can’t add or put another thing into the house. Murray was here on Sunday, he opted to come even though the weather was bad and he hadn’t seen Stacey and Matt who had arrived on Saturday, in a long time.
Murray took some great little snippet photos of what I refer to as Life in Pink;
The front porch is pinker than ever! My friend Jane, who owns the Lilligaard Hotel has been doing some redecorating and I’ve been the lucky recipient of some cast-offs! The new pink wooden rocker as well as some beautiful pink and turquoise floral cushions have definitely enhanced the front porch.
Finally my birthday present to myself bike was put together by my brother-in-law, Matt.
The hydrangeas in the front yard are in full bloom and gorgeous.
Squirrels are the official mascots at La Vie en Rose. Peter feeds them all year round. On the rare occasion when a live squirrel isn’t on the porch looking for a hand-out, we always have our ornamental friend.
And here is the real live version chomping on a treat from Peter.
Looking at So Cute from the front porch.
All the floral beauty isn’t just in the front of the cottage. This year I put a huge planter of pink and white petunias in a white wicker planter next to the shed.
By the way, squirrels aren’t the only wildlife that get fed on a regular basis. The birds have feeders in the backyard a couple of Blue Jays show up from time to time for a peanut treat also. Bold and brazen, they are not fazed by humans, at least not when there’s a peanut in sight.
