My birthday was last week and Apryl got me the most beautiful garden roses to celebrate! (After all, why have a floral design business if you can’t buy flowers for your friends?) They are such a lovely peachy-pink – simply gorgeous!

For a few days, I just left them simply in a vase near a window but then I added a few things and made two little but lovely arrangements:

These are all those fabulous classic summer flowers, old fashioned English garden roses, astilble, pale lavender scabiosa, and herbs. Apryl & I love to use herbs, especially with old fashioned roses – such a classic pairing in the garden with mint or sage.

P.S. Oh, and note another birthday gift was a very snazzy Canon Rebel XS (used here) from my family so I’m hoping to take some really beautiful photos!!!
