Anatomy of a Rose
Ahh, how wonderful that soon-to-be Springtime breeze feels today!! I'm tellin ya, I have been in the mood for Spring all this week and last, and today I thought instead of just letting my blog sit for yet another week, I would share a few of my favorite things. Roses have been one of my favorite flowers since I can remember, much like the rest of the world, but certain roses catch my attention more than others. Billowy petals, and pastel colors automatically make me look twice. Since my all time favorite flower is the Peony, roses that resemble the peony in any way shape or form always make it to the top of my list. Since I have been in the mood for Spring lately, (although I wouldn't mind a couple more snow storms ;) I decided I would put together a little visual aid for all of you dear readers, since I am sure that most of you are dealing with Spring Fever as well.
I went online to the Queen of Good Things website, and of course found an array of beautiful images and plentiful information regarding all sorts of plants and flowers, of course including roses.. So here it is my friends, just a short list of a couple favorites on Martha's behalf. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have, and hopefully you'll check back tomorrow because somebody I know (ehem...) is going somewhere tonight that fits in perfectly with this post and Spring of course ;)
