On a whim, I bought some apricot-colored roses at the grocery store the other night. Brought them home and stuck them in water, paper and all, because I needed to cook dinner. Afterwards, I noticed the light outside was looking particularly good, so I took the roses out of water and laid them on my weathered blue table.

I like the way the paper wrapping picked up the blue in the table.

The “ribbons” are actually striped leaves. I don’t know the name of the plant, but I love the way it’s woven into the arrangement.

I took off the paper for this one. Not thrilled with the composition, but I wanted to show the entire arrangement.

Honestly, these roses didn’t have a bad angle.

Incidentally, it’s National Rose Month. Happy June too, everyone!

  2. These are very beautiful images :-)

  3. The color is wonderful. That reminds me that it’s about time for the roses to be in bloom at my local botanic garden. They have a terrific rose garden. I love to look at all the varieties.

    These are seriously great shots. Definitely postcard-worthy. Why not a Valentine’s Day card with apricot colored roses for a change. Everything came together for these pictures. The light, the arrangement of the bouquet, the table.

  5. Love the “plant”-ribbon.
