Roses!

 Everybody knows I love roses, and yellow roses are my favorite,  this has been since I was a teenager or younger.  I always had them for corsages for dances, etc. I carried yellow roses as my wedding bouquet. My husband always surprised me with yellow roses on our anniversary and my birthdays, and sometimes, just because!


 
In May I started featuring the Birth Month Flower on Facebook. I did Lily of the Valley. May is also my birth month. Everyone enjoyed seeing daily posts of Lily of the Valley. I wish I had thought to also do them here on my blog, but I didn't think of it in time. 

Here's the Flower of the Month Chart:

I did think to do it again in June. I always thought June Birth Month Flower was just Rose, but the chart above lists it as Cream Rose. I chose that since it is a little more unique. White are more common than cream roses, don't you think? I found some really gorgeous Cream Roses (mostly on Pinterest.)

 

 

I found some handpainted Cream Roses too:

 Beautiful painting!

Here's another:

I don't know if it is acrylic or oils.
I also don't know who the artists are.


 Of course I had to post some with a tea cup!

 And in a bowl:


 June's birthstone is pearl, and I found a
lot of beauties with pearls!




 

 A brides bouquet!


Cream Roses are so beautiful!



 Look how fluffy these cream roses are!


Forget Me Not Flowers and
Cream Roses

I even found some novelty
Cream Roses!
 Crocheted and lace cream roses!

Capiz Sea Shell Cream Rose:

 How about a close-up?



 I have had this poem below for many years. It fits right in with this post.

 

Unfolding the Rose
It is only a tiny rosebud
A flower of God's design
But I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.
The secret of unfolding flowers
is not known to such as I.
God opens this flower so sweetly,
Then, in my hands, they die.
If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
The flower of God's design,
Then how can I have the wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?
So, I'll trust in Him for leading
Each moment of my day.
I will look to Him for His guidance
Each step of the Pilgrim's way.
The pathway that lies before me
Only my Heavenly Father knows.
I'll trust him to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose.

I'm now posting the July Birth Flower of the Month on my FaceBook. The July flower is Water Lily and Delphinium (or Larkspur) I learned that they are the same, did you know that? I didn't. I chose to use the Water Lily to post daily. They are in several colors.  I will try to remember to do a Water Lily post the end of July or first of August.

I hope you enjoyed the June Flower of the Month Roses! 

Just remembed this picture!
This was taken at my 50th Class Reunion.
We decorated the tables with yellow roses.
I was on the decorating committee!
