Just Like Heaven


Yesterday, May 21st came and went without The Rapture. Still, we took no chances and headed north to Asti.

We figured that if the world was going to end, then this is where we wanted to be.

It has been a long time since we were here.
When we arrived yesterday, the sun was casting that warm afternoon glow on everything. As we walked around, taking inventory of the roses and lavender, we looked at each other and said....

"Rapture or no rapture, we're in heaven anyway!"

Pin It!

Oh, you are a lucky lady! I do think Asti must be a slice of heaven. Those iceberg roses look heavenly, and I know must be so fragrant. I planted my iceberg rose tree this weekend. I placed it at the front steps to greet visitors with it's lovely fragrance.
Hope you have a great week. ~ sarah
