Left Overs

blsmithMay 16, 2005

While the rose shows feature the best and brightest from our gardens...for me personally, the bundle of roses that remain at the crazy end of the mornings grooming session cause me to pause, smile and marvel at their beauty.

So, they did not get "chosen" to be in the show but my heart is just as proud of what I see....and I am reminded, this is not about "me"...I am just a helper in showing off God's amazing creation.

We put our "extras" into a rose sale to the public. The nicer HTs and long-stemmed Floris are sold as single stems. The rest are made into arrangements, mini and large. I never cease to be tickled by the look on some people's faces as they select and take some of those beauties home with them! Thanks for the reminder!

Wow, those are your leftovers? How extraordinary the actual show roses must have been. What is that rose in the center, the golden yellow with pink/red edges?

hundredpetals,

That one is Bees Knees, a miniature rose. Grows HUGE.

You may have to get one! :~)

You read my mind. There's room for miniatures anytime. Hmmm....
