So, what do you say when your lovely friend Maye calls on Monday asking you to fill a 97-foot boat with roses in 2 days? Yes, please! The arrangement above was made with 101 roses. I did a lot of counting this week.The 97-foot Justine was to dock for a private party and it needed to be decorated. Here are Before & After pics of some of the 600 roses I used.Cheers to the crew: Christian, Maye, Ryan, Jacob and The Chris Norton Quartet.It was smooth sailing on the only clear night of the week.
Today is my First Anniversary of blogging from WordPress and it’s been a great year. Yesterday I visited the 2013 Rose Show at A Rose by Harvest at 111 West 28th Street in NYC — now extended for one more day so if you read this on Wednesday, 1/16 you can still go! More pics organized by color to follow very soon.
