Fairy Queen Rose Blooms

Early this morning we had a nice little shower.  The garden and flowers in the yard have all perked-up and are showing off.  Especially our daughter's favorite rose bush.  It is a Jackson & Perkins variety called "Fairy Queen Rose".

The bush is short and low to the ground, covered in clusters of bright pink blooms.

I took these images while the blooms still had raindrops decorating their petals.  This variety does not have much fragrance, but produces gorgeous blooms.

Now to see if I have any thread close to this color to tat something with.  Regardless of whether I have a close color match, I believe I'll cut a few clusters for my little Waterford vase & admire them whilst tatting this afternoon.

Don't forget:  The Piney Woods May Event ends on Wednesday, May 9th!  Be sure to leave a comment on yesterday's post for your chance to win the lovely goodies.

Time for me to get back to tatting.  May you have a beautiful day filled with creativity!
Until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!
