I wish the sky would rain down roses

You love the roses - so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be
Like sleeping and like walking, all at once!

George Elliot. Roses. 

From May to October, our house and lives are rounded with roses. 
Below, the persian love cake (not only goodlooking, also tastes delicious). Recipe  here.

  1. What a beautiful poem Amelie!
    Lucky you with roses surrounding you for so long.
    Here I only enjoy them for a few weeks (now they are already gone)

    this cake looks wonderful!

    love xoxoxox

  2. our rose rain ends much earlier,
    it's a brief time in early spring
    and i've made a mental note
    to make this next time the petals fall - thank you!

  3. a rose rain,
    this would be beautiful :)
    imagine the smell too!
    and what a pretty cake!

  4. Lovely roses! Wouldn't it be a beautiful sight, roses falling from Heaven?
    Many thanks for the recipe too!
