white and roses

I look forward to participating in Photo Friday over at A Rosy Note every week.  She always challenges us with something fun to capture. 


This week our inspiration is “White”. 
For this color loving girl this really was something of a challenge. 


As usual, I first turned to the garden as a starting point.  I cut this beautiful spray of soft pink and yellow roses and immediately knew they would look lovely on the fireplace in one of my hodgepodge of white pitchers.



I always know when something turns out as I envisioned if my family asks me where I got it.   A case in point are these roses…
My youngest daughter, who never notices anything, (I tease her that if a man dressed as Santa robbed a bank she couldn’t pick him out of a police line-up) commented on the vase of pretty flowers asking where they came from.


My garden, silly girl…my garden.

I'm also joining I love pretty little things for Friday Pretties.
