Rose Study ~ Daily Photo 10-21-12



Pink Roses for Fall ~ Pink Roses for All Seasons
Question....Why do the leaves wilt before the blooms? I cut the stems at an angle, I add the food, and I treat them with loving care. Still, the leaves wilt.

  4. Very Victorian looking photos--love the soft focus. As to your question about the wilting leaves, have you tried immersing the whole rose in water for a short time before arranging? Using warm water? Maybe experiment with not putting any food in the water--the jury is out on that, I think.
