Good morning tea time ladies! Today my English Breakfast Tea is in the capable hands of Lord Nelson’s “Briar Rose” tea-cup. Grouped here are a few of the roses I picked this weekend. Today is all about flowers, and gardens and the sweet smell of Spring.
Saturday we walked over to the rose garden in Balboa Park, and I guess we got the planting bug, because that afternoon we went to Home depot and bought some plants. We worked in the garden on Sunday and my guy planted the snapdragons, columbine, wallflowers, impatiens, verbena and cosmos while I tidied up the pots and various outdoor displays. I picked the white roses off a bush that somehow grew taller than me! The yellow rose is from my favorite bush with a sweet scent!
The white roses had a bit of a falling out from their stems, these petals don’t smell as nice as the yellow rose, but I just can’t throw them away, I keep them in a crystal bowl in the bathroom, just because it makes me happy!
This is another project that I am working on (all of these in my spare time don’t ya know!). The top strand of purple flowers was given to me by a friend, her mother had worked the crochet strand. I am not sure how I will attach all of the flowers here, some tatted and some crochet. My mom embroidered the little pin, and I may work this in somehow too.
I thought that I would leave you with these baby buds, and wish you all a wonderful week, and for those of you celebrating being a mom, your mom, or just the lovely spring weather, Happy Day to you! Please join Kimmie and the rest of the “T” group for a cup of conversation.
