August 25, 2010


Happy White Wednesday!!
I wanted to show you my most favorite rose today......it is an old English David Austin rose and it is the most gorgeous smelling rose ever!
I have had this rose in my garden for a couple of years now....it is a very slow grower, but the beauty and scent of the roses it produces are worth the wait!
I made the little compote that the rose is sitting in by simply turning an old sherry glass upside down and gluing to a silver plate.
Be sure to visit Kathleen at Faded Charm Cottage for links to all the White Wednesday participants.
Have a fabulous day!
