Late summer morning...Breakfast is served in the gardens during the warmer months. Antique linens, fresh flowers and organic offerings from my kitchen. My gardens offer fresh blueberries, rhubarb, veggies, and herbs. Dishes are garnished with eatable flowers...The lavender scones are a "FAV".
Roses of Roseledge...the land surrounding the John Meech Homestead seems to be just what roses like. My love for this flower can be found through out the property. Old fashion roses are my favorite.
