Pink flowers and little cottage gardens in the Southern Highlands

Is there anyone that hasn't dreamed of owning a little cottage in the country?
Pretty little cottage gardens are everywhere in the country and there are many here in the Southern Highlands, but the prettiest ones are the ones that have an old romantic style garden.  Rambling roses, archways covered in flowers, little paved pathways and that perfect spot for an outdoor garden setting for entertaining throughout the seasons.  A must for every cottage owner is to have the essential tea setting with a rose or flower pattern and a good looking tea pot always on the ready in the kitchen on a tray for when visitors drop by. 

So simple to do and such a treat. 

Decorating with roses and flowers (especially pink) will never go out of fashion and so it shouldn't! 


  1. You know how I feel about you styling and photography...these are gorgeous pictures. I have a cottage but the garden doesn't compare.

    Happy Weekend. Coty!
