This shelf is in our laundry room. It's functional, and yet decorative. It changes all the time.Introducing Louise Odier, the pink strongly perfumed Old Rose. It's my very first rose this Spring, while the rest of the roses are not ready yet. I hadn't been out in the back garden due to the continuous wet weather these few days. Today the sun came out and I found Louise had been out for a few days, sitting quietly on its branch, waiting to be picked!I asked my French friend what a laundry room is called in French, she told me there's no such word; because they don't have a seperate room for laundry in France. Why the numbers 3 and 5, you might ask, well, I don't know, they just look nice together, I suppose. Our laundry walls are painted Greenlandic by Taubmans, a soft mint green (looks darker in the photos) - a good colour to perk me up while doing the not so exciting chores.
