This was a floral wreath I made for our home office. To the roses I add two drops of my favorite mulberry oil and it smells heavenly. I love to make wreaths.
I am still learning how all this blogging format works as I have trouble putting the pictures where I want them....where they are spaced out instead of lined up like taxi's waiting to take people from the airport. I know in a year I will look back and laugh at these first few posts but they will always be special because it was such an awesome learning experience.
I was raised to love flowers of every kind. My grandmother had beautiful roses, snowball bushes and a lilac bush that was so fragrant it made the bees come all the way from Texas, just to drink from its' nectar. (now that part is just not so but it made for a good story...lol)
My mother and daddy love flowers and have maintained a park-like yard for years. (that part is sooo true--they have a beautiful yard) We have toted enough rocks and driftwood home from Arkansas over my years of growing up to say, "We own a small part of that great state."
My mother'n'law loves flowers and a beautiful yard but I give all the glory to her because my daddy'n'law's heart just is not in his yard....Golf and Grandchildren....well so is Mother Ragan's but she loves her flowers and she has a green thumb.
I, married a sweet man who loves to work in the yard, or did two back surgeries ago. We have left flowerbeds and strawberries every house we have ever moved from....roses, clematis, lilac, wisteria, canna's, cone flowers, we especially love wild flowers, and morning glories, and rocks...lots of pretty rocks and wind chimes and statuary...benches....you know....those of you who love flowers
I have another love and that is floral arranging. My mother loves to arrange flowers...my daughter loves to arrange flowers. My daughter is a sunflower and daisy girl. She has sunflowers all through her house.
My sister has a beautiful yard in Phoenix...she has real green grass...(When I went to visit I was amazed at the people who had green astro turf on their yards)...beautiful roses and cacti...my sister does all her own yard work as her husband has allergies but I'll tell you a "secret".....shhh...she likes having the power of that tiff mower because he keeps all his tools locked up and she has to check-out a hammer or screw driver like you would a book from the library.....um huh...that's what I'm saying...........
HAVE A HAPPY SATURDAY....PASS ON A FLOWER TO SOMEONE YOU LOVE OR EVEN LIKE!!!!
