Today Grasse was abuzz and there was a scent in the air, it was the first day of Expo Rose, an annual event that is in it's 42nd year and what a wonderful event it was, come and have a look.
Our first port of call was Palais des Congres where there was an expoSITION based on roses and fashion. Take a look at what we found....
Lets not forget though that this is all about the roses. Every morning when I take the children to school, I cut through a little hilltop village called Plascassier and there is a small holding where roses are grown for the large perfume houses. As the roses are now in bloom, the landowner is often out tending to his roses, it's such a beautiful sight first thing in the morning. I'm not sure which rose he grows but here are some of the gorgeous flowers that were on show today.
I absolutely love roses but never choose to buy them as they seem to only last for 5 minutes when cut. I do however really want to buy a rose bush because they look spectacular don't you think? I would love to know the name of the roses pictured if any of you lovely people know.
I could go on forever posting photographs of roses as they are real eye candy for the soul but it was a real testament to the rose and there were some wonderful stall-holders sharing their love of the rose in their own way.
