Victoria ~Paris in Bloom~ & Me



                                                                            Hello everyone,
                                                       
                                                              I am excited to share that the Victoria
                                                              magazines with our garden feature is
                                                              now out on our local newsstands.
                                                                 I have to say it is quite a thrill to
                                                              have our garden featured in this
                                                              beautiful magazine. Thank you Victoria
                                                              and Kate Sears! Kate did an amazing job
                                                              of photographing the garden.

                                                                   It was also an honor to be featured in
                                                               the same magazine as Georgianna Lane
                                                               whose blog I discovered a few years ago
                                                               and I have been in awe of her talent ever
                                                               since. I was happy to get a copy of her
                                                               beautiful book Paris in Bloom at Indigo
                                                               here locally under Editor's Pick but also
                                                               available online worldwide!
                                                                     Georgianna has a very soft romantic style
                                                                and I love getting a peek at the beauty of her
                                                                travels...... wish I could fit in her camera bag!
                                                                 I love her warm, friendly personality as well
                                                                so pop in and visit her at her blog
                                                                Georgianna Lane  or on her Facebook .
                                                             
                                                             


    A little peek at some of the beauty.
                                                                                Paris in Bloom
                                                                 
                                                               
                                                                   I will enjoy many cups of tea while
                                                                   enjoying my Victoria. I have saved every
                                                                   issue since the premier copy and you
                                                                   can be assured this one will be another
                                                                   keeper!
                                                                   For a peek at the feature on our garden
                                                                   you can also check it out on Victoria
                                                                   Facebook here.

                                                                      So happy to have daffodils
                                                                      and hyacinths in bloom in the garden
                                                                      along with some other spring bulbs.
                                                                   
                                                                       

                                                                 I love garden bouquets.

Can you believe May is already
here.....so much to look
forward to as the Island
becomes more beautiful
each day!
                                               Thank you so much for visiting
                                                          me today.

                                                                             Take care,
                                                                                     Carolyn

Congratulations, Carolyn! It's about time! I'm sure I had nothing to do with it, but I did write Victoria a few years ago and suggested they do a piece on you and your gardens! You just belong in Victoria! I'm thrilled to see this!

Carolyn said...

Thank you everyone and thank you Podso for taking the time to write to Victoria....I am sure it helped!

Have a lovely day!
Carolyn

Congratulations on the lovely feature in Victoria, Carolyn! Your flowers from your garden are gorgeous and I have also been a fan of Georgianna Lane for years. So glad May has finally arrived and I'm thrilled at all the changes we see happening every day in nature. Love this time of year!

Blessings,

I am so delighted for you, Carolyn. I immediately recognized your garden on Victoria's website! I'll be going to town and get extra copies today. Extremely happy for you!

On Easter day before dinner, I told my mom about this blogger I have been reading for a couple of years and encouraged her to follow as well, because I knew she would love the gardens and tea things. After dinner, I picked up her Victoria from the coffee table (which she hadn't read yet)and started leafing through it. "Oh my gosh! This is her!" So funny to see the garden that I had just told her about-I felt very "in the know", haha. Congratulations-I am sure this was a thrilling experience for a Victoria fan.

Congratulations to you on getting a great publish in such a fine magazine! It is well deserved and long overdue. I looked for it last week but didn't find it so will try again this week. The flower photos are stunning and so colourful. We've certainly had lots of rain to deal with lately so things are growing but we sure need some sun!
