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!
