The Last Roses

I just received a very special birthday present from my
dear friend Jana. A rose decorated ironstone dish
that she knew I would adore (and she was right!).

Inspired by a loose bouquet of garden roses at Jana's
mom's art studio, I went out into my garden early the
next morning, hoping for a few blooms to bring into the
house There is something very special about the first
and last roses of the season, don't you think?

I love the combination of roses and ironstone- they were
just made to go together and I also love the fact that I
am reminded of Jana and her sweet friendship
every time I pass by.
