I can't show you what I am sewing...but I can show you what I am growing. Friend and quilt appraiser Diane Shink dropped by last week and sent this picture which she took of our rosebush. She suggested I share it here on the blog.
These are Dorothy Perkins roses, a gift from my father-in-law for our new home we built when we moved to Amherst in the 90's. Malcolm Neary was a biology professor at the Agricultural College (now part of Dalhousie University) for over 40 years, provincial entomologist, and in possession of a very green thumb. I can't take any credit for these beautiful roses, they are all his doing. I will add a few pictures of my own to Diane's:
You can read more about this rose on Wikipedia. It's a beauty for sure.
