{My ROZALEA® CORAL PINK birthday gift}


For creating a feeling of spring, inside your home, there is nothing better than live plants! So glad we got windowsills installed in our kitchen and veranda. They're made out of white Corian. In Europe it is quite common to have wide windowsills installed.

From Maria Runggaldier, Lady Chef at Ristorante da Maria ← (click it)  and her husband Heinz, I received this beauty for my birthday. Having had a delicious five course authentic Italian dinner at their restaurant first, made me feel like being pampered by dear friends.
Today I captured the full blooms of this incredible Rozalea® in Coral Pink.



Don't you agree that it is a BEAUTY?


Sunshine does even add to this Rozalea® Coral Pink; it makes one's mood so happy!


Thank you Heinz & Maria for such a perfect gift; the planter is gorgeous too!
Grazie Mille!!! As they would say in Italy...


They do resemble real roses...

  4. Hallo Mariette,
    die Pflanze hat Glück gehabt, zu dir zu kommen. Du hast einen grünen Daumen und so ist ihr ein langes Leben beschieden. Sie sieht wirklich wunderschön aus mit ihrer zarten Farbe und diesen außergewöhnlich großen Blüten. Ein tolles Geschenk.
    Schön zu hören, dass du zum Geburtstag mit einem großartigen Essen verwöhnt wurdest. Deine Freundin Maria hat sich sicher extra viel Mühe für dich gemacht, damit es ein unvergessliches Essen wird, von dem du lange in Erinnerung schwelgst.
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

  10. Nou, jij zit al in (voorjaars)bloemen. Bij jullie is het al lente! Wij mogen nog even wachten, door het dunne sneeuwlaagje zie ik al puntjes groen doorkomen. Zolang kijk ik maar naar jou mooie plant en narcissen.

    Fijn weekend,
    Sandy

  12. I love the delicate color of your rozalea.I agree plants do brighten a windowsill.
    I guess spring has sprung for you with a bouquet of daffodils already.

    Have a good weekend,
