A Glimpse of Roses


On Valentine's Day, my husband sent me some beautiful roses . I put them in a sweet white pitcher.


After two weeks, I trimmed the stems and put some of them in these individual bud vases. I love how they sit in this little wire rack.


The rest I placed in this little pink milk glass.

I thought I'd taken a picture of the roses today. I will have to take one tomorrow and post it at a later time. I've been able to dry a few of the roses. The colors have faded but they are beautiful still.

  2. I remember the picture that you posted of those roses when he gave them to you for Valentine's Day. I was awed by the different colors and how beautiful they all looked together.

    Did you crochet the doily on the table? It is beautifully done.

    Have a great weekend, Gina.

    1. I'd not seen so many different colors either, Dianna. No, I didn't crochet the doily. It was a gift. :-)

    1. Thank you, Kim. I can't remember where I bought the vases. I think it was Napa Style online but I think they may have gone out of business.

  5. Hi Gina!

    I love roses, what a wonderful gift!! The little wire bud vase is adorable, and a great way to enjoy the roses, when the bouquet starts getting thin. The milk vase is gorgeous as well!

    Have a wonderful weekend sweet friend!

    Hugs,
    Barb

    1. Barb, I love them too! After a week or so, trimming the stems really helps them stay bloom-iful!

  6. Those really lasted a long time Gina. I have dried roses in the past when I had a porch. I hung them upside down from the rafters. Then I used them in a wreath.

    1. Arlene, I don't know if my roses will last that long. They are looking a bit droopy yet still beautiful.

  7. the roses are just gorgeous, I love the bottles with the roses, I bought a set of bottles like that and used them last summer, can't wait for the flowers in my yard to bloom so I can use them again :)

  8. Hello, Gina, and thanks for coming by Marmelade Gypsy! Your comment on my Easter banner brought a smile to my face!

    I am in awe of your roses -- and really in awe of how long you have managed to keep them looking for fresh and beautiful. So often they just don't seem to make it. (Or maybe that's me!) How wonderful that such a thoughtful gift continued to live on for so very long!

    1. Jeanie, I am so surprised at their longevity as well. The roses came with that packaged flower food. When I transferred them to the smaller vase/bottles, I did trim their stems and added a little sugar to fresh water. That might have helped.
