Fresh pickings

I’m not sure I am ever going to tire of going out into the garden and picking some flowers for a table or somewhere inside. These, these are my very first roses of the season that I picked before the rain came yesterday afternoon as well as some cat mint which I find so pretty when it’s in flower.

The iceberg roses in my Grandmother’s vase just make me love it all the more…

    We had cat mint in Calgary – well actually I thought we had cat nip in Calgary. Thank you for teaching me the correct name!

    Jealous. I am living vicariously through your garden’s pickings. Mine is so dry there are just no flowers.

    Beautiful, I love your roses as much as I love picking my own, they make up for the fact that otherwise I am pretty challenged when it comes to growing things!
