La Vie en Rose
Take this photo as inspiration! Simply fill a shallow bowl with water, cut the stems of several dozen roses and set them adrift. This makes a dazzling centerpiece which will enchant everyone who sees it. Deciding to take a respite from the bustling medina of Marrakech, we were on the lookout for a place we could take a time out. We spied a hotel with massive doors, sheltering a cool interior. Stepping into this beautiful architectural oasis we were greeted by a marble fountain filled with roses. What a tremendous delight for the senses - the contrast of supple roses and the smooth polished marble, the rose absolut fragrance wafting on the air, the colors mingling and gently floating on the water that softly fell over the edges into the pool below - what a soothing sight!
