It's that time of the year - Southern California is exploding with roses. I took home an entire bucket of them from my mom's garden over the weekend and stuck them in every room of the house.

When they're this close to blown, I don't do much "arranging" per se, it's more just a matter of plopping them in vases and trying not to get too scratched up by the thorns.


You only get a few days out of them, but they're pretty lovely days.


  1. How can you have roses when we have... nothing?! I know, I know, Southern California isn't the Western Isles of Scotland, but god, this makes my winter feel interminable.

    1. If it makes you feel any better, we're probably about to run out of water and/or get knocked into the ocean by an earthquake. There are pluses and minuses, I guess.

  2. Rachel! That kitchen looks just the right size for you! :)

  3. Gorgeous! We're finally starting to see signs of spring in New England, and I cannot get enough of this sun.
