Bloom 2015 – elegant roses

You know I said last week that my heart was softening towards roses for cutting? Well here must be the proof. I was cutting back a couple of roses that climb the pergola. Neither grow very well and we are thinking about replacing them.

After I loped a few straggly branches off I didn’t have the heart to throw away two stem that were blooming so I made this arrangement.

In with the roses are Alchemilla, Antirrhinum and Dianthus barbatus. The vase is from Ikea and looks like an old fashioned milk bottle.  Totally different from my usual style and I absolutely love it.
