I had never heard of a rose bowl (other than the crowning glory of the football season) until a cousin gifted us with this one. It’s been sitting on a shelf gathering dust…what a shame.
A quick trip through sudsy water and it was ready to receive a collection of the flowers that continue to defy torrential rains and cooler nights. They are: Dahlias, snapdragons, nasturtiums and a single pepper.
When I moved it from the little orange stool to the dining room table, what a difference. The backlighting from surrounding windows lit up the sparkling cut glass and made the whole thing more dramatic…just another of the surprises in store for anyone who joins Cathy (Rambling in the Garden) for her weekly meme. Try it…you’ll like it.
