Fresh-Cut Friday #25

So happy to be sharing my favorite thing in the whole world! 

If your new here, Fresh-Cut Friday is all about floral arrangements. They can be from your garden or favorite floral spot.  It can be a new post or an older post. It doesn't really matter. 
It is really just about the pretty.  Everyone is welcome!
 I started FCF 2 years ago because there were no linky parties just for all our pretty floral arrangements. So I thought what a great excuse!  
Not just show off, but to buy ourselves flowers at least once a month.  

Well that was over 2 years ago! And here we are... I guess it was a pretty good idea. 
So if your here... I'm really happy!

These are my Gladiolas. I didn't take to many pictures of them because I didn't time the blooms right. I bought these stalks on Tuesday and they should all be open on Friday.... huummmm... I guess I should have put a little more thought into that. Anyway Gladiolas are the August Flower of the month. They are a flower that I don't usually go for but they are very pretty and feminine. And they last a long time to. 

When I was picking up my glads... I saw these lovelies... 
They were so pretty. They are actually green with a pale white to pink center.

The petals have a ruffle to them that is very striking.

 I have never seen these before, but they are appropriately 
named Green Fashion.

I thought they were so romantic that I let that be my
 inspiration for my photos. 


Oh! AND that is my new white tray from Pier 1.... 

You'll probably be seeing that in more of my photos... Just because I love it!

Wine, Roses and Candle light! 
How romantic is that!

So now jump on in...Don't forget to go visit your neighbors.

I'll be joining these other fun parties.

Oh What a brilliant Idea! I'm a florist and gardener and I was just this week thinking of starting a linky party for just FLOWERS we bring home or have growing etc.! How cool! I'm linking up as I do regular posts on my house flowers and plants. I put your link party in my post and mentioned for others to come on over here to participate in your lovely idea for a flower party! Love it and following ! LOL lady

I forgot to mention that I adore green/pink roses. I used to purchase a multi bloom on single stem rose which I cannot remember the name but the colors were pale pink with green, just like yours. I love these! lady

Glads - they were my Grandma Kats' (my paternal grandmother) favorite flower. When they were blooming she would always have a vase full of them on top of the television.

I hadn't seen them much in years but they must be making a come back in popularity because I've seen them in a number of yards this year.

The Green Fashion roses are very romantic - lovely.

BTW I actually posted a floral arrangement on my blog yesterday... :)

Thanks for sharing your beautiful roses. Wish I had some fresh cut to share, but did not pick up some at the grocery this week and the flowers in my courtyard are so pitiful. :(
Thanks for hosting.
