In a Vase on Monday - The Garland and Pierre de Ronsard

With temperatures of 90ºF/32ºC, the roses in my garden have an increasingly shorter shelf life.  It's time to get them inside, where they will last a few days longer.

Here, I've used The Garland and Pierre de Ronsard in an antique Sure Seal mason jar from my grandmother's house.  It's actually my favorite "vase"!

I'm linking with Rambling in the Garden for this week's In a Vase on Monday meme.

  1. Seeing these roses, I have to cut some myself for in a vase. And because we both love old hings I will put them in a similar vase! Groetjes Hetty

    1. I have to laugh because my children don't undestand why I like old things. For them, everything newer is better. But they will learn...

  2. Oh such beautiful roses - and what a shame they won't last long in the heat. It haseen dry and very warm here too although not as hot as it is with you, and all my rose buds are opening at once so I hope it dpesbn't shorten their season. Thanks for sharing your pretty vase

  3. How nice to meet you.
    Such an inviting blog with a totally different perspective.Those bloodred poppies! Do they have a war connotation - Flanders Field - like they do in the UK?
    Your Garland rose looks very similar to the one I grow in a greenhouse - and I was considering it for next Monday's arrangement, but it seems to drop its petals if I breathe on it. Mine is called Adelaide d'Orleans. I wonder it the two are related.
    I don't know Pierre de Ronsard, but it looks wonderful. And yes, I am also a fan of Mason jars and the like. They have such a robust character which contrasts nicely with elegant flowers.
