What A Beautiful Day

We had a wonderful Christmas and New Year visiting our son and daughter in law in New York. It was lovely to spend some time with them in this fabulous festive city and even got to see some snow before we had to leave and come back home. 

I was inspired by Maja Design Mood Board with these beautiful colours and the pink Roses reminded me of the time we were in Lyon during the Rose festival. 


I am also entering this into the challenge at Challenge Yourself where the theme this month is "What A Wonderful World".  We love travelling around the world to explore new places and the lyrics to this song remind me of our visit to beautiful Lyon.  Although I do a lot of research when choosing which places to visit, I had somehow missed reading about the Rose festival that is held in Lyon every year. What a pleasant surprise when we arrived in Lyon at our hotel which overlooked this beautiful square with it's fountain adorned with Roses. The scent in the air was pure magic!!!

I see trees of green
red roses too
I see them bloom
for me and you
And I think to myself,
what a wonderful world.
