Wow, it doesn’t seem so long ago, that we were just opening.
Yet here we are approaching the last weekend of summer–
Labour Day weekend.
And, as usual, it sure has been a labour of love–
a natural labour, a good and productive labour….
a labour that invites craft and turns it into art.
And as St. Francis of Assisi delightfully spoke and now paraphrased:
“A person who uses their hands is a labourer. Those who use their hands and their mind
are craftspeople. And those who use their hands, mind and their heart are artists”
The Rose Garden Summer Cafe will close its doors to Autumn.
And hopefully an Indian Summer of sorts….
I wonder why it’s called Indian Summer…..
We always love opening the environments of
The Rose Garden Summer Cafe….
We love opening our Facebook Page with lots of poetry, facts and photos…
We love our website which is like a blank canvas full of memories
ready to be painted upon anew each summer season
with fresh imaginations and inspirations
always holding within our hearts
the art of an ever-evolving imagination, inspiration, & intuition.
This year we felt the summer in our cafe and the beach in our environment
in fun new ways!
We realized we were the summer cafe in Lakeside Park and Nelson’s beach cafe….
And it was wonderful to feel the levity and lightness in beachiness,
and picnics and parks and flowers and fancifulness.
The Rose Garden Cafe
opening every summer like a rose….
bringing fresh fragrances and menu selections
new faces and delightful team members on our staff
and a brushstroke of renewed, colourful imaginations
of bicycles, baskets and roses….like a heart full of happiness.
It was a year of enjoying creating new ads
to express our presence and intentions….
floral, vintage, summery fare.
Seven days……to folding the tableclothes one last evening.
Closing the umbrellas,
bringing in the bicycles with baskets of flowers,
cleaning the grills and dishes and smoothie machines….
Seven days….to still enjoy The Rose Garden Summer Cafe
in her full floral attire, with smiling staff, and in-love owners…..
Dance down the seven days with us
Enjoy our food, our ambiance, our organic intentions and
our joy of “holding open” the space and place called
The Rose Garden Cafe
Simply Beautiful, Naturally Delicious……
Thank you for this opportunity
to share what we love to do:
opening and creating heartfelt environments
that nourish, inspire, embrace and bring happiness….
Stop by…..we’d love to see you
