Apron at Rest

My daughter gave this wonderful apron for Mother's Day and I sure am enjoying it.  My other daughter gave me gardening gloves a year's supply of them and I sure am using those also.
This apron is pretty no matter what is in front of it.  I'm sure you may have seen the red roses that a friend gave me in the Ball Jar.  I had placed that jar on the Hoosier cabinet to make more room on the counter while preparing a meal and just happened to get that fabulous shot.  It wasn't hard to do with those gorgeous roses and apron.
Today even though it is cloudy in here I took a picture of a few David Austin Roses that I cut off by mistake while pruning that bush.  They are beautiful in themselves also.













The Rose is a David Austin called Teasing Georgia.
One of my favorite very prolific blooming rose bushes at Hibiscus House.

A yellow 4-5" rose (petals 50+) of delicate beauty. The flowers are of a particularly pleasing cupped formation. The center petals are in the form of a rich deep yellow while the outer petals fall back and fade to pale yellow, providing a most pleasing two-tone effect on a continual blooming bush. The growth is strong but gracefully displaying the flowers nicely. A pleasant tea rose fragrance. Winner of the Henry Edland Medal in 2000 for the most fragrant variety in the RNRS Trials.  credit for information

  1. Now that is a really cute idea with the cut out embroidered rooster on the white fabric. I bet you could make something like that. Glad you're enjoying it.

  2. Yes I do like it and the x stitches are really cute...this would be a great way to use up those stitchery/red work embroidered linens that we all have or find in the antiques shops..Hope you're having the best weekend Kim. I know you've been doing something and can't wait to see.
