Rose Eye Candy

Today I had some extra time to enjoy the garden and spent most of my time cutting blooms.

Around here you know that October could throw you a curve ball at any time and before you know it frost is upon you. That means every bloom in October becomes very precious. And, the cooler temperatures just intensify the colors!

TODAY’S HARVEST…

My watering can was filled to the brim. Actually I filled two watering cans! Out of the “harvest” I was able to make 6 arrangements. Oh happy day! 🌹🌹

This is the largest one! It promptly went on my kitchen table.

Lions Fairy Tale from Kordes … This one is so much prettier in person! Such an easy care beauty. I bought this one from Chamblee Nursery.

Music Box (Easy Elegance by Ping Lim) with Double Knockout and Flamenco Rosita (Chamblee Nursery) in the background. All three of these roses fall into the easy care category!
