THE POWER OF A ROSE

ROSE_3

It’s incredible how much power a single red rose embodies. Then again, if you look at a rose closely you can see the power within it’s seemingly never ending layers of velvety petals. It’s true, lately I’m completely flower obsessed… but how could I not be?! Flowers are really one of the great wonders of the world!

ROSES

One of my memories as a kid is walking down Berry Road (named for it’s never ending berry bushes!), where I grew up in Georgia, and seeing wild pink roses everywhere. I can’t imagine having grown up in an urban area. There were always so many quiet days in the South… days to just wander through fields, watch the neighbors horses, or just lay in the sun with my dogs. A simple life. A life where flowers were part of the everyday, especially the butterfly bushes.

Working on this pattern got me yearning to design wallpaper…

  1. What a lovely print! I love those leaves with a touch of pink. Your roses bring back good memories. For four years in my childhood we lived at the place where there were a number of old rose bushes. While they were in bloom there were always several in a vase; big fat cabbage roses. I love that quote about always stopping and smelling the flowers. If I walk by someone’s garden and they have a rose bush next to the perimeter I always stop to enjoy. I think it makes the roses feel loved and appreciated.
