Styling Vignettes: Garden Roses

Even though we're moving into summer, flowers are very much in bloom here in Southern California. I still see a lot of varieties on my daily walks. We have a few flowering plants in our own garden but nothing too extensive, and most of them were planted by the previous owners. Our garden additions have mostly been succulents for their easy maintenance (our track record with flowers isn't the greatest). We do have a large rose bush in our backyard, it sits right outside my window actually. I like it when it grows wildly and doesn't get trimmed. Blush pink and magenta buds bloom all over it. We occasionally snip a few and bring them inside. Last month I collected a few of these springtime roses and had to document their beauty before putting them in a vase.

This vintage wood caddy was something I found while antiquing and I used it as a display piece for my craft fair last year (that seems like ages ago now). Normally it is in my studio holding crafting supplies but it seemed like the perfect flower carry-all. I love the wood tones mixed with the pink and green hues in these shots.

I hope this provides you with a little inspiration on this Wednesday. Have a lovely day!
