A Rose Centerpiece


The roses in my garden are at their peak. The blooms are heavy and just beginning to show signs of slowing down. The extremely hot weather we've had this week is punishing them—pushing them to all open and be done. But before that happens, I plan to get maximum enjoyment out of them. I picked this bouquet and put it on the dining room table, so I could enjoy the fragrance every time we sit down to eat. I think the subtle smell of roses is one of the few fragrances that doesn't compete with eating. Lilies and many other fragrant flowers are too overpowering. This centerpiece doesn't compete with anything, and I think I'll enjoy it while it lasts.
