We were blessed 12 years ago to find our dream home and garden. It was a home large enough for our 3 Children and my mother and father in law and the inevitable guests we have come to stay. Its nestled in the country on the edge of town. Mountains one side the sea the other. Close enough to to town but far away enough to have deer as our neighbours. Our country garden. Never underestimate the healing power of a quiet moment in the garden. Its prescription free medicine for the heart and soul.
I hope you enjoy these wee pics of our garden. I have so many flower images of real flowers I wanted so show you how much these inspire me.
Ruby Rose for our 17th wedding anniversary
I had some paste that was almost un-rescuable I had been saving for a special flower but it needed to be used as it was losing all its elasticity and going hard. When I realised it was nearly 3rd of June I thought it could make a lovely rose to signify our Wedding Anniversary.
20 centre petals to signify our 20 years together with 17 outer petals to signify our marriage.
The colour is a mixture of Bakels Red Pettinice and Rainbow dust Progels.
Its dusted very slightly at the tips with rainbow dust spring green.
This was made with lots of love and enjoyment. I thought it was a bit worn looking.. a bit like us lol!
Making roses is my therapy.
