From Our Fall Rose Garden
Rose Bouquet Gathering of Royalty

Thanksgiving 2014


Thanksgiving brought out the best from an armload of stems foraged in my friend Mary's garden.



I picked things that might look nice with market mums.



 Viburnam and pomegranate leaves, salvia, and Perle d'Or roses.





Now to back up a bit– I liked the bouquet pictures so much, I wanted to post them first.

When I returned from Mary's, I hastily put the stems in this copper bucket not thinking at all about pictures. Then I noticed the condensation on the window and all those golden birch leaves---  an Instagram shot had to happen.



When the sun was higher, out came the Iphone again. 

I was hoping I'd have time to do a blog post for today------I'm so happy (thankful) that I managed it! I dreamed of the long list of thanks I wish I would write. Time and thoughts will only alow the bare bones, but they are the best: love for nature, family and good friends, magical moments  (often w a camera), and the Creator of all.
