Spring: Peace & Revive
The first roses of the season - so fragrant! The yellows with pink petal edges are called the Peace rose (#3-35-40, then Rosa 'Madame A. Meilland'). Some claim it is the most popular rose of the 20th century.
Spring Cleaning - time to gather up the heavy comforters and pull the lighter weight quilts off the shelf and out of storage. This time of year I may occasionally use one of these quilts as a tablecloth for a special gathering. I'm likely to pull fabrics from the springtime color palate for upcoming projects, too. So, it is not surprising that I've recently been working on quilts with tulip and butterfly themes.
"The beautiful spring came;
and when Nature resumes her loveliness,
the human soul is apt to revive also."
Wishing you Peace and Joy this Spring!
What gorgeous roses! Thanks for naming them as I had no idea what the beautiful lavender/purple is called. I had a Peace rose a few years back that had a wonderful scent. Bringing cuttings in was one of my favorite things about having roses. Mary at Fleur de Lis Quilts 04.21.2017
The lavender/purple's name is unknown to me but it is by far the most fragrant in the garden. I agree, it is always a special treat displaying flowers indoors.
