Do you stop to smell the roses?

I am not a morning person. Hence, I am late to work most days.

Today, as I raced out the door and up the road, already starting to fret about work (and also, whether to get fruit salad or turkish raisin toast for breakfast. Food is a very serious matter to me.) I was distracted by this rose bush out the front of someone's house.

 be honest the roses are about 2 metres in the air, drooping downwards from a fence/garage, so you'd be correct in thinking that it's hard to get distracted by something above your line of sight. You could say, I deliberately stopped to look at them. You could even say I was dawdling when already late for work.

One might even say that I was stopping to smell the roses, if you're that way inclined.

I am that way inclined. It's a nice inclination. They smelt damn sweet too.

These two fuzzy close ups remind me of a Cath Kidston print, don't you think?

Incidentally, her Rose & Carnation hand cream is one of my favs. It smells lovely and has sweet little silver gold stars on the tin.

I suggest you buy yourself some then if you don't have a rose bush to stop and admire, you can stop and admire your lovely smelling hands. (I found it stocked in Target for all you Australian readers!)

oh pretty! the colors are amazing. i really like australia's blazing blue skies, except for when they're blazing hot.

never knew there was cath kidston handcream, rose and carnation sounds like a good combination though. i'm a sucker for nice rose scents.

Oooh lovely!

We are so lucky living in this pretty floral blue skied part of the world (and of sydney!).

I love rose scented everything!

you guys are awesome. I thought i was the only nana trapped inside a 27 year old body that loves rose scented anything.
I tell tom all the time that my shit smells like roses. It doesn't of course but I try!
