The rose bush is of an unknown variety, gifted to me as a pass-along plant during the winter months last year from dear friend and garden blogger, Melissa of Dirt and Wine.
Melissa had too many crowded roses at her new house. I was more than happy to help her out and take a rose bush off her hands.
To compliment the formal structure of the rose, I paired it with another profuse bloomer in the garden right now, and the more informal look of the black-foot daisy.
These flowers do so well in our hot and arid Texas, thriving on neglect and continuing to remain bright and cheerful through the most gruesome days.
Lovely in my flower basket.
This is definitely my favorite vase yet.
