  Anyone else love monobotanical bouquets of roses? Some people tell me they don’t like roses because they’re overused…I think they’re just overcombined (I just made up a word!) with other flowers…sometimes beauty is in simplicity…

Happy Wednesday…in a few hours!



  1. I love roses, but I grew up around them. Perhaps that makes me better appreciate their complexity and differences. I still find it difficult to believe that a person would say they “dislike all roses” because there are so many types and textures and colors.

  2. Jenny says:

    that second to last picture is the only time I’ve liked the petals flipped back…probably has to do with the color. I think you are completely right about the “overcombined” thing. What’s not to love?

  3. That Floral Artistry photo took my breath away and I am definitely from the camp that doesn’t love roses. I like them, but they aren’t at the top of my list. But those ruffled petals won me over today!
