Rustic Climbing Roses

These sweet cabbage roses are from my backyard.  I love arranging them in vintage creamers.  That is my new mission.  Whenever I thrift, I find pretty little porcelain creamers to use as mini vases all over our home.

I love the different heights of each one allowing for different types of arrangements.   These blooms aren't red although they seem that way in these indoor pics.  They are more a dark pink, not quite magenta.
This is our rose bush.  It sits against the deck and the pretty blooms peek thru and I can see them from inside my house.
Peeking thru the deck.
More peeking.  I picked these to put in the little creamers.  See the holes in the leaves?  I guess some little bug or something had a snack.  Oh well.

I love the rustic feel of the pretty blooms against the weathered deck.  My husband wants to paint this deck and we go back and forth every year.  I like it natural like this.
Pretty buds waiting their turn to open.

Have a great day!

Your roses are so pretty. I need to find me a place in my garden to put one so I can buy a rose bush.
