This weekend we visited the Journées de la Rose at the Abbaye de Chaalis. Near the ruines of the ancient Abbey everything involved roses. Rose lovers, garden enthusiasts and rose professionals presented their products and savoir-faire in a fragrant environment. And of course: we were accompanied by a true Rose, which made it extra special.
The weather was wonderful, the rose garden wasn't blooming yet due to the cold spring, but the rose ice cream tasted really good! Oh and did you know that the French wear pretty hats to these kinds of events? I spotted so many wedding-proof headpieces but completely forgot to shoot any for my Styloise series… oops!
