Days of Wine and Roses
More about this piece

This work was created at the request of the International President of a wonderful French family bakery business.  The Margaret Merrill roses and white Dianthus are from our garden.  The bread is a ‘tresse’ or plaited brioche loaf spattered with poppy seeds.  I bought some good cheese and fruit, opened a nice bottle of Provençal rosé, and took the photograph in our garden late on a warm summer’s afternoon, hence the long shadows.  The gorgeous pottery plate is from the Porches Pottery in the Algarve, bought back in 1993 and still in daily use.
