December Tiny Bouquet

At last nights SoCal Hort meeting there was a Holiday Arrangement competition. I didn't have a lot blooming since my Mums are almost spent. But I did have two micro miniature roses; Jolly Cupido (red& white) and Cinderella(palest pink). I added some sprigs of variegated Myrtle and put them in a tiny antique bottle. The whole thing is about 3". I joked that you'd need binoculars to see my entry. I tied for the win with another woman. We split the prize basket of wine, sake, chocolate, cheese, etc. I let her have the book The Drunken Botanist by Amy Stewart because I already own it. Yay!

Do you grow tiny micro mini roses? You should. They're way too adorable an great for tiny bouquets. This is now on my skinny kitchen windowsill.
