Weekend Snapshot: Roses of the Garden

Host unlimited photos at slide.com for FREE!

My daughter and I arranged some dried roses and hydrangea this weekend. "Looks kind of crazy, huh?" I laughed as we struggled with the brittle blossoms. "Yeah. And that's a good thing!" she replied. She was right.

  3. I love the 'antique' look of dried flowers. They're a wonderful memory of summer and a bit of age mellows the colours just right.

    Hmmm... I hope that applies to people my age too! LOL

  5. Oh but what a lovely picture it made. It's super and I would say almost an abstract. Oh my roses did so poorly this year. I was away for 5 months and I lost about half of my bushes.

    I do so love to bring the last ones of each season in and hang them to dry also.

    Happy WS:-))

    P.S. thank you so much for stopping by and seeing mine. My heater decided to quit working today and I am running late everything!!

  8. Nice to improvise in this way. I've got a few roses on a couple of my bushes, but I'll need to cut them back soon.
    Hugs and blessings,

  9. it's very rare to see bloggers feature a rose this close and in an angle that makes you think how beautiful each petals are.

    I've heard people making potpourri with dried rose. Never heard about people arranged it ;).
    The shot is great.

  20. I love floral arrangements. My only problem is the dusting involved with silk or dried arrangements and the wilting of the fresh arrangements. Still. Flowers add so much atmosphere to a room.

    Peace - D

    I hang roses upside down and let them dry. I love hanging them in my kitchen. I love this shot!

  28. Lovely close-up shot. It's sad that every rose has to wither but it's worthwhile to appreciate its beauty while it lasts.
