I am trying to squeak every last rose out of my garden before the frost takes over.
A wonderful way to showcase a single flower is in a beaker vase from CB2 (a modern store by Crate and Barrel) in Chicago. It is basically a fat chemistry tube with a hole in the glass to thread a ribbon through. I have mine suspended from a key in the lock of my Swedish-style cabinet. Friends who drop by can't believe that the rose is real. This beauty is named Paul McCartney, after the one and only.
If you could have a rose named after you, what would you choose?
