Basket Full of Roses...

(click photos to enlarge)

It is already time for another Pink Saturday

So I thought it was a perfect excuse to make a centerpiece:-)

First of course there must be a bundle of roses!
I picked these from my front arbor
they are "High Hopes".

My roses are finally getting some sun, and perking right up.
Summer is always over before you know it...
So you must bring as many into the house as you can!

I love to collect unusual containers
to use for arrangements.

I think this little pink basket is as sweet as can be!

I love the porcelain roses,
as delicate as the real thing:-)

I really enjoy editing photos..
it draws your eye to details not usually seen.
A new appreciation for the small things. 

Like the graceful arch on the stem
of a delicate rosebud...

The Lady's Mantle always appears to be a mist of chartreuse,
but up close you get to enjoy the tiny petals:-)
Simple,  but beautiful  in their own right.

Thanks for visiting me today...

Oh Bella, your basket is over the top gorgeous. I would imagine it's just as pretty empty as it is with beautiful roses in it. I do like the blooms tho. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Hi Bella,
That is certainly a lovely piece holding the pink roses. In fact I have some chargers hanging on the wall that is identical to that piece.
