Give me roses...just roses

The first time I went to Marrakech was many years ago, in 1999, I believe.
It was for a happy occasion, the wedding of a friend.
The religious ceremony took place in a small church in the Gueliz district
and I helped with the flower decoration.
I discovered one could buy enormous bags of petals of roses for a ridiculous price.

Fresh fragrant petals of roses all over my home.....
This is how I wish to start this new week !



Mon premier voyage à Marrakech remonte à très longtemps, 1999 je crois.
C'était pour le mariage d'une amie, une très belle fête,
et la cérémonie religieuse s'est déroulé dans une petite église du quartier de Guéliz.
Comme je participais à la décoration florale, j'ai découvert
que l'on pouvait acheter des sac énormes de pétales de rose, à un prix dérisoire.

Des pétales de rose frais et perfumés disséminés dans toute la maison....
C'est mon doux rêve pour ce début de semaine !

And I would send them to you, my dear, if I could... I can almost smell that delightful fragrance from here!
