It's that time of year again - the wild roses are just coming out in bud up here. Soon we will have loads of them. I've picked a basket to send along to a friend tonight just in case she feels like making some garlands with them. You can see an example of the garlands we make with them at the bottom of this post. I love to bring a little bit of the outdoors in all through the year and these have been a springtime favourite for years - I put them in pretty bowls or teacups and have them throughout the house. Last year I also enjoyed making wild rose bath salts with them - shown here.
