From the Garden No. 4 ~ The Sweet Scent of Roses

"You may break, you may shatter the vase, if you will, But the scent of the roses will hang round it still." Thomas Moore

Every summer night this year, I am thankful that I decided to grow roses.  Their sweet fragrance scents the air wherever they are.  I especially love them in my bedroom.  During the day, the delicate scent drifts through the air, imparting a lovely smell in the room.  At night, it is lovely to have these beauties be the last thing you see as you fall asleep.  


For this vase I used the Scepter'd Isle rose and added globe thistle, plus purple flowers from an arrangement I received this week.  I do not know what it is but it reminds me of lavender.  The globe thistle add interest and oddly works with the delicate roses.  And for a vase, I went with milkglass because I am just obsessed. :)
