Welcome, and thank you for visiting.
I took a few minutes the to make a simple little vignette to share with you. And you know, sometimes simple is truly the best.
This is the first year that my knockout rose bush looks beautiful.
We moved into our downsize in October.
The following spring we landscaped and planted shrubs, flowers, etc.
And...the following winter we had a major freeze.
I though my little rose bush was a gone-er!
Spring rolled around again and I had to prune her waaaay back.
I was not really sure that she would survive.
Another year rolled around and she was looking pretty good.
And now here we are...spring 2017 and she looks wonderful!
I snipped a few sprigs...and put them into a cute little blue and white canister, which became the the start of my little vignette.
I made the little bouquet look more like a centerpiece by placing it on a pretty tray. I added a white linen tea towel so that the rough bottom on the canister would not scratch my tray. It is one of my Beatriz Ball pieces.
Just a sweet little vignette...
in honor of the Kentucky Derby,
aka Run for the Roses.
Until the next time.
