RAINY DAYS AND ROSES

We are having a rainy week here in California, which, of course, we need. I leaned out my back door yesterday to get a shot of the pink sky at sunset.
I wondered if the rain would show up in the photo. Well, it did, but not in the way I thought it would. I guess you can figure out that the spots you see are actually rain drops.
And because it was raining, I sat the entire day and made roses from yellow linen. They look kind of orangy here, but they are really a light lemon yellow. I am going to be putting these on the backs of white denim slipcovers for folding chairs.

Your roses are so pretty - sometimes handmade roses look, well, rather bedraggled LOL - but your's are just lovely.

How nice to have a colorful sunset! Here on the Atlantic we've seen nothing but white and ice-blue skies for weeks.

It makes you feel cold just to look at them!

Gorgeous sunset! We surely need the rain and we are getting it all at once!

Your roses are gorgeous sweet friend and will be the perfect addition to your slipcovers.

Love and hugs,
Karyn

The sunset is so pretty. I do miss the sunsets out west; not quite the same here in Florida.

Can't wait to see the roses on your slipcovers.
