Roses

With so many here reporting late (OMG LATE!) roses blooming, I thought I'd share these. I picked them yesterday at my employer's house. LOL She's had her gardens for about four years now and has *never* picked so much as *one* of the flowers. Since I had the run of the house and grounds yesterday while she was out of town, I decided to show her what she was missing out on.

Included in the arrangement is several pink roses (in various stages of blooming), a few Knockout roses, and foliage from nandina, youpon holly, an unknown shrub, and ornamental grass.

I left before she got home, but she called me later asking who'd sent her flowers and what had happened to the card. When I told her the flowers had come from right outside her own door she just couldn't believe it. I have a feeling my list of duties is going to be expanded to include Chief Flower Cutter and Arranger.
