Roses! Because what’s a garden without it?

I have finally managed to get a climbing rose in bright pink! I also bought a peach/pinkish coloured rose for my balcony. Oh! They are a delight to look at! The dainty, delicate branches dance in the cool breeze.

Here is what the balcony now looks like…. pbalconyp flowers1petunias

planterI got an extra pot and planted a few verbena seeds in. I’m hoping they germinate. In fact, I’m praying.

Inspired by the roses in the balcony, I made a few from paper. I got the template from The Elli blog. I don’t own a printer and besides who would pass up the opportunity to paint roses? So, I got my colours out and put my dusty skills to use. They are not perfectly coloured but then again, which flowers are?paper rose 3

I folded them up and glued it all together like in THIS tutorial and suddenly I had permanent roses! I plan on giving them leaves and other features if possible. A little bit of DIY is good for health.

Maybe I should crochet a few flowers to keep them company in this cold weather. 🙂

  1. I love your flowers (real and paper)/plants/pots! ❤ You did inspire me to get my own plants, I recently shared this on my blog 🙂 I hope they don't give up on me.
