The Budding Rose Mosaic

I haven’t been blogging for a while, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working.  Since my home is no longer on the market and I have decided to stay in Arizona at least until the real estate market picks up, I am back to prettying up my garden wall.

This winter brought several 12* nights to the Sonora Desert – most of the plantings in my garden did not survive those frigid temperatures. That is with the exception of my roses, they seem to have flourished.

Because I love roses and most flowering plants, during the winter I created several patterns of single flowers.  Included in that process was the design and creation of a budding rose.  The mosaic is now on the East wall of my garden and I am happy to share it.

      Tami – can’t wait for you to get back to town, we’ll have to sit in the garden with a nice bottle of white, hummm – maybe Sangria! I received the tiles for the sunset mosaic this week, so that will be the next one I work on, can’t wait for you to see that one.
