Weddings and David Austin Roses!!!

So many beautiful weddings and when we get use David Austin English Roses... So much more beautiful!!! Here is just a bit about David Austin:
"David CH Austin is a rose breeder, specialist grower and author. His first rose, the fragrant Constance Spry, was released in 1961. Since then he has released nearly two hundred English Roses. Few new flowers have caused such a stir in the horticultural world."
English roses are known for their full apperance and lovely fragance. When we get them in, our cooler smells heavenly every time we open the door!!! I also get so excited to be able to purchase the leftovers for my home... Here is a variety called Phoebe.

Look at the lushness that is an English Rose!!! I am truly enjoying this arrangement, during the day, while I am away, I put it in my fridge so they will last longer. Although they are beautiful, the vase life is much shorter than your typical florist rose. I did mix them with a rose variety named Esperance, it is a favorite florist roses, it's full and a beautiful creamy pink with brighter pink edges. The vase life for this rose is almost 2 weeks!!! Depending on room temps , of course!!! Which is why I put mine in the fridge when I am away... Just keep them away from your fruits and veggies!!! Did you notice the fuzzy green balls??? So cute, right?? They are called Green Trick Dianthus, a member of the carnation family, I think... The stems are similar to a carnation. They are such a long laster!!! We have had some out for as long as a month!!! Be sure to change the water out and you will be happy with this little jewel!!

So now a few wedding pictures and then back to work!! Featured below are Bridal bouquets and some Bridesmaids bouquets as well!! Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!!! V
