~ Red Twigs and Roses ~ In A Vase On Monday ~

Last spring I added three red osier dogwood shrubs to my front yard border. This is the time of year their beautiful red stems begin to show.

  1. It’s a beautiful combination! I’ve been paying more attention to stem color myself – it can provide a nice color echo in an arrangement.

    I love the cornus stems too and I know when I first planted mine I was reluctant to cut them right back in the spring but sure enough they throw up all those gorgeous new stems – and yours with the rose buds and leaves in transition are especially pretty

  3. What gorgeous stems of cornus, and wonderful coppery leaves.
