This is a moment of delight! A single David Austin "Heritage" rose and a spring of mint resting on a silver coaster on my piano. Do you ever make tiny bouquets? It is easy with this flat disc vase from CB2.
I like to have something small and sweet in unexpected place around the house. It shows my intent to delight and is a visual gift to everyone who sees it. Do I sound crazy? I am completely serious.
Here, I have it resting on the ledge of the piano. Sometimes I put a single rose in the first floor bathroom or next to the phone in the kitchen.
I definitely have turned my rose garden into a cutting garden. When I get a bloom, I cut it, no regrets. I would much rather have it shown off in the house than leave it outside bobbing in the elements.
Plus, this way I get to show you! How do you show your intent to delight?
