The Time of the Roses

Hello, dear friends! Thank you for your much-appreciated visits and comments on the Giverny village photos. Although many of us are well into autumn, at least per the calendar, in our garden we still have roses budding and blooming and very few leaves of any color. So, I thought we’d take one more visit to the magical village of Gerberoy, France, and its romantic, rose-covered cottages, okay?

Centuries-old stone work and beautifully-aged wood, softened by untamed roses.

Red timber work faded to deep pink.
This last was taken in Normandy, at the manoir where we stayed when we left Gerberoy. I’ll be sharing more of that amazing place soon.

In other news, I’m thrilled and honored to be featured in two of my favorite publications this month, Romantic Homes and Somerset Life! You can see the covers on the sidebar at right and I’ll share the inside details in the next post. And kudos to you, too, since each of you contribute so much by encouraging me in creating this online endeavor.

Wishing you a fresh and sparkling new week!

much love,

– g


  • Happy week to you too!
    And Congratulations!
    And…thanks for these great – and romantic – photos. Yes… summer dreams…so nice especially since fall is now here to cool us! :)

  • Oh lovely roses, love the dreamy feel and soft edges of your photos. Simply stunning work! Autumn is definitely here now, we had the first night with frost this week (which I sadly couldn't capture) but there are a few roses still in bloom. Congratulations on the feature! :) Happy to be in the same issue as you! Happy Sunday! xo

  • Hi G,
    Again these are gorgeous images. I love a stone cottage and sure wish I could get my husband to build me one ;-)
    I love how the red timbers have faded to such a pretty shade of pink and hope that someone doesn't see the need to re-coat it.
    If you ever publish a book I would have to have it. It would be worn out in no time…I could live in you pictures.
    hugs from here…

    October 16, 2011

  • Congratulations on the magazine features G, that's excellent news and well deserved. Looking forward to your next posts so we can take a peek at the articles. I don't think it's possible to get those publiations over here. Gorgeous rose photos, I don't think I can get enough of your French roses. Some of these places look like they were just waiting for you to come and take photos, they're perfect for your beautiful photographic style :)

    October 16, 2011
  • ooohhh, I love your photos!!!!

    October 16, 2011
  • Taking time to smell the roses this afternoon… your lovely roses! France does have so much to offer, and the sweet towns of Giverny and Gerberoy attest to that. Your Normandy home away from home looks lovely–can't wait to hear about it. I'm so excited you are being featured in the two magazines. Just the beginning, I'm sure, of new journeys ahead!

    October 16, 2011
  • What a fairytale like village this is! Love the colours…. of course… and the roses and other flowers…. of course!

    October 16, 2011
  • Hello G

    Take care xx

    October 17, 2011
  • Yay!! I did see your "thank you" on the last page of Somerset Life. A second surprise as the first was my photo featured in their Miscellany section. (nothing like tooting my own horn!) heh!! Seriously, I loved seeing you featured in there, G! I'll have to look for the other mag in my B&N; next time I'm in there- woohoo! Have a great week ~Mary

    October 17, 2011
  • Oh what pretty dreamy photos again! I love them all! Roses are always such a thankful being to put into the spotlight I think. The magic will never stop! Many many congratulations on your feature in those great magazines! I wish I could get Romantic Homes here in the Netherlands. I would have bought it right away! Can't wait to see the insides of what they published about you and your fantastic work!!! Have a wonderful day!!

    October 17, 2011
  • How absolutely beautiful these images are g!!! And how exciting to be published in these two wonderful publications!!! Hope the rest of your week is delightful in many ways…

    Much love back to you… Dianne

    October 18, 2011
  • I can never get enough of your beautiful rose photos G.! These are simply gorgeous … and so nice to see when mine are fading.

    Congrats on Romantic Homes & Somerset Life! xo

    October 18, 2011
  • Keep on coming these Georgianna, I like to live in fairytale:) I'm back in my boring life in Finland, it is cold and sad here (light is fading away to minimal day after day and I'm really missing Amsterdam… or anything:) I think I live through these fairytale pictures and through my pictures from Amsterdam keep dreaming. Fairytales are much more fun than this cold rainy place here. Maybe you notice I have little troubles to live in reality just now:)
    Have a great week enjoy your last roses and keep us beautiful pictures to dream of.

    October 18, 2011
  • OOOhh!! que colores tan vivos!!
    Cuanta vida, son unas fotografias preciosas!!

    October 19, 2011
  • I'll go right out and get them!!!! Congrats! I am taking a moment from grading papers to see you, for you have such light in your spirit and you are a blessing to know. I am getting sad at the thought that my calender is running towards the end of this year. I have a little something via snail mail to send you soon… hopefully sooner than later, hee hee. sigh. Take care dear and much love to you and yours! Blessings.
