Mid-bloom, around the first of May, I gathered as many roses as I could in about an hour's time.
Then I pulled out my iphone to record what came next.
Roses ready for prepping.
The lower leaves and stems all need to be removed for easy arranging. Can you decipher the thorn strippers? I'd be lost without them.
I found two roses in love!
Almost done and I haven't had breakfast.
Time for a cornflakes break.
The roses are ready for transport to a children's party. Each child will have the opportunity to fill a basket with roses.
One of my goals here was to see how well my iphone would do for a blog story. What do you think?
