Cabbage and Roses. . .

When Spring time arrives my thoughts often go to Cabbage and Roses. . .soon the garden will be bursting with beautiful blooming roses and the cabbage heads will begin to form.

Until then I will suffice with indoor cabbage and roses.  When I was putting away my Easter d├ęcor I realized that I had overlooked my wonderful cabbage pitcher and bowl.  It was a birthday gift from a dear friend years ago.

cabbage & roses

I created a little table behind our love seat with some of the wonderful things that will soon be gracing my garden.

a trip to Wal-mart for the lovely white roses.

cabbage, roses, and yes, carrots.

My bunny hopping among the veggies was a definite yes for this vignette.  As were my cabbage S&P shakers.

When I saw this little plate at a thrift store I knew I had to have it.  It’s a motto I truly live by.

There’s no place I’d rather be than in the garden!

an unlikely couple, yet they go so well together.

Hope they come to your garden soon!

Oh such a neat and well-thought-out vignette. And you are right, dear Jann- they really DO go well together!

Wanted to let you know that 2 of your pics aren't showing up, not sure why.
It is pic #2 and #7.

Hugs.

Cabbages and Roses ... how fun! Of course I first thought you wrote "Cabbage Roses" ... which are some of my old fashioned FAVES! Buying BUNCHES of roses from our grocery store today to brighten our little corner of the world. Thanks for your inspiration (and a great coupon for the floral dept. hee hee!)
HUGS!
