Rose Bouquet Gathering of Royalty
Triple Treasure Roses

Rosa Palustris


On a visit to The Gardener last week, Susan Donley and I each bought one of these perfect porcelain vases. This is R. palustris, The Swamp Rose, after she posed in a flowernotes magazine shoot.




I like the simplicity and thought why not do a single image post for a change. I hope you enjoy.
