Taking time to smell the roses…..

The last 48 hours have been a bit of a roller coaster ride dealing with health issues. This morning our good friend Debbie offered to come and sit with Glynn while Peggy and I took a break.
So coffee it was at our favourite coffee shop Piccolo.

After yummy cheese scone and coffee we headed for Riverside Market.We bought nice fresh vegetables, including our first green beans of the season,and new potatoes. I can see one of our 
favourite dishes Potatoes, beans and bacon on the menu in the next few days.

Next it was off to the Taupo Rose Gardens to, well, smell the roses.The air was full of perfume and the roses are all in tip top condition. If you are ever in Taupo this is a lovely spot to visit. In the centre of the garden there is a large summer house which is often used for weddings and family celebrations.


Mary Rose love that old fashioned look

Freesia - This one's for Debbie

Thanks Debbie


  1. The roses are beautiful.

    Hugs to you and Glynn. May today be a better day!

  2. Some lovely time out for you, what a beautiful garden... sending hugs and good wishes to you all...

  3. Sounds like some time out was just what you needed. I love shopping at farmer's markets...I always come home with something I've never tried before and then spend some creative time in the kitchen.

  4. Sorry to read about the problems with health issues - hope things have settled a little now, and pleased to see that you were able to take a break and have a lovely time out and about with Peggy thanks to your kind friend.


I love hearing from you - write now!
