La Vie En Rose

Life in pink, in rosy pink hues... 

Pink and heavily scented blooms are in the garden and they never fail to evoke a romantic feeling in me. What a delight to see petals unfurl to gorgeous blooms! Enough to make me float on air and sing in French!

La Vie En Rose” is a really beautiful French love song, which means something like “Life in Rosy Hues”. The music was written in or before 1946 by Louis Gugliemi. The lyrics were composed by Édith Piaf herself, the French songstress who made the song famous. 

The blooms and the song makes me feel blissful. Thankful for being in love and be loved in return and for the life as I see no regrets in it.

Pink blooms in the garden:

Blue Moon
Carefree Beauty

Sempurna means 'perfect'.

The song in different makes. Enjoy!







LA VIE EN ROSE (English translation By Thomas Keyes)

Eyes that gaze into mine,
A smile that is lost on his lips—
That is the unretouched portrait
Of the man to whom I belong.

When he takes me in his arms
And speaks softly to me,
I see life in rosy hues.
He tells me words of love,
Words of every day,
And in them I become something.
He has entered my heart,
A part of happiness
Whereof I understand the reason.

It’s he for me and I for him, throughout life,
He has told me, he has sworn to me, for life.
And from the things that I sense,
Now I can feel within me
My heart that beats.

In endless nights of love,
A great delight that comes about,
The pains and bothers are banished,
Happy, happy to die of love.

When he takes me in his arms
And speaks softly to me,
I see life in rosy hues.
He tells me words of love,
Words of every day,
And in them I become something.
He has entered my heart,
A part of happiness
Whereof I understand the reason.

It’s he for me and I for him, throughout life,
He has told me, he has sworn to me, for life.
And from the things that I sense,
Now I can feel within me
My heart that beats.

Merci beaucoup!

Beautiful collection of pink roses

These scented roses are called as 'Paneer roses' here. Their frangrances are literally breath-taking. I wonder if these are available in the button rose varieties as the big flowered plants did not do very well in my pots.
