ANTIQUE ROSES & EDIBLE BLOOMS!
There is nothing like a Rose. I do not mean the Roses you get from a florist or even your garden variety Roses but the old, fragrant, full Antique Roses. Our farm is 230 years old and we are fortunate to have Wild Roses growing all over the property.
They look like these. Tight and compact almost like a Peoni. The aroma is almost overpowering first thing in the morning.
They do not last that long but the small window that they bloom is just breathtaking.
I have tried to dig some up and move them closer to the house but I don't know how old they are and their root system is endless. I just enjoy them as they are, wild and rambling. If you ever get the opportunity to smell a Wild Rose, do so because there is nothing like it.
I am proud of my Canadian, Norwegian and British heritage, it greatly influences my art and the way I decorate my 235 year old farmhouse. I am a vegan earth mother living in Canada. My passion is my family, my furry darlings and my art. I do all that I can for the welfare of all creatures great and small. I live a life that I fill with magic, blessings and bliss for myself and my loved ones.
