Julia Child rose macro

This David Austin rose, named after the queen of butter, is worthy of her namesake. Blooming so bountifully!

Rose garden

The front roses getting ready for their first bloom. This year the little bed with the foxgloves, hardy fuchsia, and armeria looks good, too.

Pink lavender

Not everyone knows that the lavender plant comes in several colors, and one is pink!

Flower arrangement structure

Not sure what to call this blue-ribbon winning piece of floral art I saw yesterday at Seattle’s NW Flower & Garden Show (#nwfgs). Not a bouquet, not really an arrangement, more like a sculpture, it towered over onlookers. The complete, enormous arrangement:

By LaVassar Florists, Path to Mindfulness

Here are closeups of the top and bottom parts

Tiers of roses and ferns bedeck this flower sculpture

 

Enchanting tiny path with ferns

Rose bouquet

Rain is predicted, so I went out and cut some roses.

I’m posting a second photo of this same bouquet from a different angle. Which do you prefer?

This is in honor of the 25,000th comment received on this blog, on the Cherry Tomatoes post below (thank you, Magical Mystery Teacher!). Every single comment I have ever received here has been kind and positive. What a fine group of people are photo-blog visitors!

Wrist corsage

Alonzo, owner of Our Secret Garden florist in West Seattle, modeled a wrist corsage he had just finished for a wedding that evening. We had adjacent booths at the West Seattle Street Fest this weekend.

Pretty wrist corsage for a lucky mother of the bride.

Perfect pink rose

I just can’t get enough of roses lately. What a color this beauty is!

Probably a David Austin rose, its many-petalled center like a peony makes this so romantic

Backlit yellow rose

This yellow beauty is my new favorite rose, my David Austin rose Julia Child. Butter yellow, for sure!

Sunshine glows through the petals of this Julia Child rose, seen from the back. Even the sepals are graceful.
