In a Vase on Monday

  1. Crushed red velvet, rather apt opulent arrangement for the chateau. Maybe the Alliance Francaise will get rid of the trema which will leave me bereft…’Noelle’.

  2. How intriguing about circumflexes! 😉 Too late for you now, but you don’t need to leave WordPress – if you click on the symbol to the right (it depends whch way you write your post what it is – might be 3 dots) of where the sybols are for bold/italic/links, etc This is the toolbar toggle and it will come up with another row including an omega which you click on to get special characters – and hey presto! accents, degrees, fractions, etc…
    But back you your vase – oor Wullie is a indeed a most handsome rose and I wonder why I didn’t consider him as a replacement for those of mne that I took out (presumably size or flowering period).Using the hydrangea and berberis is inspired – what a lovely combination and what a shame you don’t think the vase will last the day….carpe diem!

    1. You actually called him the way he was in my head – I tamely went for the English version. Thanks for your comments – and especially the advice about the accents – I will investigate since I do actually need to use them occasionally, living here! I always have to apologise to French friends for lack of accents in my emails – but I couldn’t go over to a French keyboard since I touchtype and French is not QUERTY – I’d be lost. Look out for a post soon with lots of accents in it!!!

      1. I remember when I first came and didn’t have an internet connection. I was forced to a cafe to send emails with work attached. It was a real nightmare as a touch-typist. All the keys are in the ‘wrong’ place.

  3. That’s a very pretty rose and it’s all the more wonderful for its ability to take the cold. I hope it lasts longer than you expect. Perhaps a beam of sunlight will allow it to slowly defrost…Another blogger provided me a link some time ago showing a method of encasing flowers in ice cubes for display purposes. (The key is to do it in stages.) I’ve never tried it but perhaps you should!

    1. It did last overnight at least Kris – how fascinating about the ice cubes – I didn’t read this until the rose was defrosted, but will bear in mind for the future!

  4. Your vase is charming, if fleetingly. I love those rich colours and ‘Willie’ is certainly stunning. The vase itself looks beautiful too and befits the contents. Perfectly arranged and photographed.

  5. Stunning! It really is a gorgeous arrangement and your view is fabulous too! We have only had a little frost so far, but it is the damp and fog that finishes off my flowers. That rose is a winner, frozen or not. 😉 Such a shame they can’t be preserved in that perfect state.

  6. That is so very beautiful, and I love the vase you used too! Your roses look lovely despite being frozen (poor things)! There were a few snow flurries here this morning.
