White Roses: a Corsage and a Memory
I picked white rosebuds from 'White Dawn' last evening and hardened them in a cup of hot water before assembling a simple corsage. I found a part roll of silk ribbon, once pink, now faded, from Kathy's Aunt Etta's long ago flower shop, enough to make a little bow.
It reminded me of how 'New Dawn' roses always bloomed in time for Mother's Day, which Mama wore in Memory of her mother. I wore a little spray of some wild red floribunda.
