Picking and Arranging Roses

This time of year, my home is always decorated with gorgeous colorful blooms from my gardens. Right now, fragrant roses.

I love roses and have enjoyed growing them for many years. Here at my farm, there are so many roses blooming, we're able to enjoy them both inside and out. When cutting roses, do so early in the morning and select those that have just opened. And always use a pair of shears or scissors with sharp blades - the sharper the blades, the cleaner the cuts and the longer the roses will last. Earlier this week, my housekeepers, Enma and Elvira, picked some beautiful flowers to display in my Winter House.
