My roses are doing their best to bloom, despite the wet conditions they have to deal with. And I do have to give it to them... they really do make the most of it.
My roses range in a colour from white, light pink, hot pink to deep burgundy. I also like to surround myself with a wide range of colours, but when it comes to my bedroom, it is mostly creamy white.
This summer I have crocheted an all creamy cushion cover, in a (to me) new yarn of cotton and acrylic blend. I do usually prefer all natural fibers (be it fabric or yarn) but I do like the texture (and creamy colour) of this particular one.
The yarn (Tuva from Trysil Garn), feels soft and delicate to the touch. I have been so taken by this particular yarn that I have even started to knit (another!) cushion, in garter stitch. The result of this particular one is to be revealed later..
Delicate is also the word that comes to mind when I look at my pretty (but oh, so soggy) roses; Felicité Parmentier, Queen of Denmark and Henri Martin. Lovely "old fashioned" roses with the most delicate scent.
Thank you for all your lovely comments since my return to blogging. I do treasure each and every one of them.
