We have a climbing rose vine that had looked like a dead stick all winter. As the weather has warmed up it has sprouted leaves – unfortunately in a ridiculously high position threatening to climb over and beyond the wall and where the flowers, now that they have come, are rather hard to see from most places inside.
So when the rainy season kicked in, it was the perfect excuse to cut a few blooms and bring them inside to enjoy before they got battered out of existence.
P.S. okay so a small confession to make – only the white roses are from our garden. The others came from the florist.
Now if only I could stop extended family members from “cleaning up” those fallen petals, which I think give the composition beautiful balance…
