A Life in Rose!
So while I was sleeping in rose petals, I dreamed of…you guessed it…
Isn’t this a pretty rose? (Oops, there I go taunting “Paris Glace” again! The full post on glaciers is coming soon, I promise.)
The roses that are grown for their oils around Grasse are the Rosa centifolia, or as they are often called the roses de mai.
And they love their roses! You could find them crystallized everywhere.
A tower of rose jelly.
Patés de fruits…
Even the wine is rosé!
I even saw white chocolate flavored with roses but, alas, did not get a picture. 🙁
I couldn’t resist this, though:
I curse myself now that I didn’t buy some.
Here’s a tip: when traveling, do the reverse of what you do when shopping at home. ALWAYS impulse-buy. You will regret it later if you don’t.
Even if it means you have to eat 2 kilos of chocolate in the airport to get your luggage home…
