Roses would have to be my favourite flower. I love them all. I am so lucky now in Tasmania to be able to have a few prized bushes in my little garden. My mother, however has over 500 of them in hers. I have included a few photos for you. If you are ever travelling in country South Australia to a little town called Penola, call in and say hi to them – they love to show people the garden they work so hard in. It really is beautiful and so peaceful. They have just had 100 ‘roving rosaliers’ visiting on the weekend…
Roses have forever been used in every form of embroidery. From white work, candlewicking, shadow work, bullion embroiery, ribbon embroidery, applique, stitchery, many international styles of hand work – roses are the most popular flower design used. I just LOOOOOVE them cant you tell?
take time to smell the roses today..
