Roses

I love having a cutting garden, and being able to go out and pick my own flowers.


If the garden is out of season, then I buy them from the supermarket. To me, its affordable luxury.


In order to build a beautiful arrangement,

You need to have a few things in place.

Trim stems at an angle. Even if you don't want to cut them shorter, you need to trim the ends in order for theme to feed.
