Blowsy Roses in a Cobalt Jug

Hi! The markets here have been selling what they call ''field roses"---such a sweet old-fashioned seaside summer flower.

The bunches are mixed colors and very inexpensive, about 5 or 6 dollars a dozen. And unlike fancy long-stemmed Valentines roses, these open up into tiny colorful cabbage-y blooms.


I love them in my big old cobalt Bennington jug.  It takes a lot of flowers to fill this guy, so I don't get to use it often.



They last a long time. I snipped the final buds and tucked them into a lavender Mason jar.

So pretty. And no, they have no scent. Too bad. I love them anyway.....
