The Romantic Rose for Valentine’s

Romantic-rosesWhen folk consider flowers for Valentine’s Day, the perennial favourite is the red rose. I think there is something intensely romantic about a single, velvety, dark red rose, but if I were to be receiving a bouquet of roses, I think I would prefer pink roses.Romantic-roses-2The bonus with giving or receiving roses is many are fragrant too, with most of the old fashioned varieties perfuming a whole room with their beautiful, rich scent.

Of course, as you may have already guessed, I don’t just love old fashioned pink roses, but pink blooms in general and find them a great source of inspiration for my flowery silk scarf designs. And with that in mind, here’s a jug of last summer’s dahlias providing just such stimulus!

      1. My uncle was! John Valentine Clark, born 1909. Known as Jack or Val. Beautiful photos and scarves as always. Perhaps pink is one of your favourites as it suits your daughter’s complexion (and therefore yours too?) so well.

      2. Yes, I often think my Grandmother could have at least given my father a middle name and Valentine would have been fine! Mind you my mother’s name was Valeria so we could have had two Vals in the family. πŸ˜ƒ πŸ˜‰
