Yesterday there was a break from the rain and I gathered these roses from the garden as part of our gifts for a family as we were invited over for dinner.
The Perfumed Perfections (purply/mauve ones) are showing off their colour and fragrance to the fullest at the moment, and since the lady of that family loves purple, I thought they would be perfect for her.
I mixed in peach and pink roses to make the bouquet more interesting and here are some photos to show you.
The joint forces of fragrances nearly knocked me out!
There's something special about the colour purple, especially on roses.
Here's the more peachy side..................
And here's the more purply side..............
I pulled out my little collection of heirloom doilies from my mum and started looking through them.
I keep them in those round boxes which used to be for cup and saucer sets.
Look, a purple crocheted doily, perfect!
It's still raining now as I write, I'd better go get some more roses in before the rain damages them.
We have company tonight.
Have a lovely lovely weekend, won't you? Bye for now.
