Flower Art Friday ~ Special Edition ~ Roses

LeAnne is celebrating her birthday this week
and the theme for the Special Edition Flower Art Friday is roses.

Although I no longer seriously grow roses,
at one time I had over 30 roses that I tended, loved and cared for.

I do have four heirloom roses that grow in the center of my circular garden,
chosen primarily for their low maintenance!

The roses shown are from an arrangement which I have rendered two different ways.

The birth flower for June is the rose;
in the language of flowers, roses mean passion and beauty.
Birth month flowers were originally chosen because that is when the flower blooms
or is at the peak of it's growing season during that month

Happy Birthday LeAnne!
