When 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.The 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!

Gosh, you’re getting in well ahead of the day! I agree that for scent, you can’t beat many of the pink ones, but I do love a cream rose too.
I find Feb 14th is one of those days that is suddenly upon me as it is also my father’s birthday and, no, 😊 he isn’t called Valentine!!
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.
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. 😃 😉
Some lovely blooms…What an interesting effect with the photo of the lovely model fading somehow behind your brilliant scarf!
Thank you. I do love the odd pink flower!
