Window Dressing # 2 Todays Flowers

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
and so are you
see here for the origin

This week I found some small isolated rose buds on the nearly empty bushes
 Just the right size for dressing my kitchen window sill
(Mid season its hard to find many - hopefully the bushes will be covered in a few weeks)

The cluster of pink blooms is from a bush called 'The Fairy'
unfortunately the white one is called 'unknown'
This label as well as lots of others seems to have gone walkabout over the years!
There were also some slightly larger lone blooms
they made it to a little Mikasa vase which sits nicely beside the tiny one
My smiling curly tailed friend is there as well lol

Those are the last of a cherry tomato crop - no matter  how long they sit there they don't seem to go red.  I did wonder if thats the colour they should be 'cept the picture on the label is red.
Have to say not many of them have actually made it on to a plate either
as they are in a handy snack position lol
Now here's a quote that to make you think!

  1. That is a wonderful little vase, you can't have enough glass vases in my opinion.

    1. Have to agree with that one Gill - there are quite a few (big and small) under my sink

  2. G'day Cathy. The vases with their beautiful blooms look really lovely, as do the little ornaments. Are you wearing those caftans Cathy? It's meant to be about 35 here where I live today and it's already 30.5 at 11.12am.Take care. Liz...

  3. How lovely! It is so cold and wintery at home that it is wonderful to see your roses on your very pretty window sill. At the moment we are in Florida ready to board Freedom of the Seas tomorrow morning. We were on the beach here in Cocoa Beach last night - there was a very chilly wind out there, but nothing as cold at home in Ohio. Thanks for the link! :))))))

    1. Hello Lois - nice to see you. Enjoy your time away, I bet after being in the cold all winter you are ready to be away in the sunshine for the next three months even if 'Your Honey' has to work whilst you are both onboard.
