one of my summer goals was to learn the delicate art of starting roses from cuttings
there was much cussing and frustration with early failures suggesting that this was something I was just not going to be able to figure out.
then suddenly it all came together and soon I was transplanting rose babies
the first rose bud off the first rose baby was saved and dried
To celebrate this victory, I wanted to do something special with the tiny rose bud.
So I made this specimen box from an old frame and crafted a bottle stopper to fit a bottle that was found at a yard sale this summer
the two seemed to be a perfect match.
I love the fact that I can remove the stopper specimen box and maybe next summer I can fill it with dried rose buds.
