Chemistry 101

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?

How pretty. You need to show off that cabinet too. I would like to see it and the goodies you have inside. Have a nice day! Daisy~

Thank you, Daisy. That cabinet is full of treasures, for sure. I think I can swing another peek inside soon. Thanks for the suggestion.

I'm with Daisy! The rose looks gorgeous and makes one want to peek inside, beyond it.
