Time to go to Bed ~

After a busy day it is always nice to look forward to slipping into my soft, comfy bed and relaxing with a book or two...or sometimes watching television. I love my bedroom, it is one of my favorite rooms in the house. Last night after working all day in the garden and a nice hot shower it sounded particularly appealing.
I like to keep a few flowers on the bedside table along with some books I am currently reading and a fragrant candle. This candle is Fig from Flora and Fauna, a really lovely fresh scent.

 And the roses...a David Austin introduction: Mary Rose. It is the rose that many years ago 
 started the  the interest in Austin roses in Southern California and in my opinion is still one of the best. All of the wonderful petals plus its amazing size and wonderful fragrance.

A few books, some lovely flowers,and the sweetness of fragrance in the air...come on Miss Twiggley it is time to go to bed!

 ~ Bonne nuit et doux rêves ~ 


  1. De bons livres, une petite bougie parfumée, la présence agréable d'un bouquet de fleurs... rien de plus parfait comme prémices pour de beaux rêves...
    Un joli billet.
    Gros bisous et bonne nuit !

  2. Beautiful roses! I love David Austin roses.

  3. I hope you slept well. Such a gorgeous view on your night stand.

  4. I just got my first ever David Austin rose catalog in the mail today! I've slowly been growing a love affair with roses as my garden grows (I know I never blog anymore, so you wouldn't know how it's growing...but it slowly is). I just buy from Lowe's or something like that usually, but really wanted to branch out. It's nice to see a recommendation! :)

  5. Beautiful roses, cozy, and inviting room.

  6. Hi Adrienne. Those roses are beautiful, I love how they are all ruffled when they are fully opened..Happy Wednesday..Judy

  7. Your blog is a feast for the eyes, sugar. We lived in Southern California for many years and loved the weather. Then we move north to SF Bay area and then to Idaho to retire. Love it here also because it's a desert but it gets cold out here.

  8. Your header is a absolutely beautiful. I think that bedtime could only be enhanced by books, roses and a wonderful candle!

  9. You are fortunate, indeed, to have the perfect climate to raise roses. The ones in your post and in your header are beautiful! Right now I am struggling to stay awake - I mean, as I read your title I was struggling.... me thinks it is time to go to bed!

  10. "longtemps je me suis couchée de bonheur " PROUST
    on est bien dans sa chambre à l' abri du monde
    un endroit précieux ,ou l' on déguste le temps
    entre un livre et un chocolat chaud :::
    bonne nuit
    à très bientôt
