June.........So many dreams come true now - roses bloom, bouquets are tossed, sweet music fills the air.........
June is National Rose Month. In honor of that, I was asked by the Orlando Area Historical Rose Society to put fresh roses from my garden in a local library - Oviedo, Fl. This is the first of at least three bouquets which I will donate throughout June, along with some from two other members. This is my favorite rose bouquet that I have ever made!
My society grows and promotes the growing of antique roses.
My bushes cooperated and I had plenty to make a nice arrangement. June is also a special time of brides and the satin "sleeve" I made to slip over the vase fits in with both themes.
Lucas Nursery donated a pot of Drift roses for our display.
I love the very close-up shots where you can also see the tiny buds.
This contains six different types of roses - Old Blush, La Marne, G. Nabannon, Marie Van Houte, Pink Pet and Clair Matin.
Marry when June roses blow - over land and seas you'll go - wedding superstition
This is the small wedding I worked on Monday for DestinationOccasion.com. These roses are not from my garden.
It was threatening rain but, held off, thank heavens.
Some day my prince will come, too!
May all your June dreams come true.
