A birthday rose

Last year, on a whim, I popped some pink hearts (dicentra) onto my almost one-year-old's bedroom mantelpiece before bedtime.

This year, having remembered last year's flowers, I did the same. My almost two-year-old had a rose snipped from the garden on her mantelpiece to greet her on her birthday morning. The start of a family tradition I think.


  1. A beautiful tradition Helen ... and one of the joys of being born in May with all its lovely blooms ... Bee xx

  2. What a lovely idea. May birthdays are wonderful. Beautiful photos too - you can show them to her long after the flowers have faded.
