Downton Abbey Rose Contest!

Downton Abbey, everybody’s favorite British Serial Drama is in it’s 6th and final season. This show has captured the attention of people around the world in a way that few, if any, shows have ever done!

I am having a very hard time accepting that this is the final season. Mercy, we’ve been through a lot together in these 6 seasons … marriages, war, feuds, funerals, hats, family dinners (some of them quite uncomfortable),  kitchen talk and beautiful flowers. I can’t wait from one family dinner to the next to see what flowers will grace the table!

WEEKS ROSES BRINGS US A DOWNTON INSPIRED COLLECTION

When I first heard that Weeks Roses was to  release a Downton Abbey series of roses, I thought that this couldn’t be more perfect. This show brought us aristocratic beauty, romance, elegance and sass–just perfect for roses!

Have you seen the roses in this collection? They are spectacular… a wonderful and very fitting collection.

Downton-Abbey

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE?

All this talk about Downton Abbey has me wondering who your favorite character is.

I can tell  you mine…

It’s JOHN BATES.

Quiet, cautious, strong, loyal, and that smile he gives to Anna–yes, my fav is Mr. Bates.
