One my chores during my usual weekend is to renew or rearrange my vase of flowers. I am fortunate to have the most gorgeous roses in the garden so I can do this whenever they keep blooming. Unfortunately they got a beating this week in the torturous heat. I decided to see what I could find and picked the few that survived and below is the outcome. As you know some of my favourite flowers are Roses and Peonies hence the name of my blog but along with these I also love Hydrangea and Lilac.
To be honest I actually love most flowers but if I were only allowed two it would be Roses and Peonies. There is something so delicate and beautiful about them. No doubt it is the pink colours that gels so well with the dainty petals but its even more than that. While I continue to get my sewing sorted and await my couture pattern from America I decided to share these pictures because they are such pretty flowers.
I don't know the name of these but they are particularly pretty. They are a soft peach colour with very open blooms. There are also gorgeous Red, Yellow, Pink and White roses almost in bloom so I will try to capture those at a good time and add them to my collection. Around our neighbourhood a lot of homes have amazing flowering roses and we've been told that this year was particularly good for the vegetation because of the amount of rain that we got throughout the year. I guess it must be true. I will try to capture some of those images while I'm out and about walking our dogs if I remember to pop the camera in my pocket.
