A year ago, I visited my family in South Africa. I managed to be in the country for quite a while and so I could spend precious time with each of my siblings and parents. While I was there I took a few pictures of gorgeous flowers and in the next few weeks here on Friday Flowers, I will show you these.
Feast your eye on these burgundy beauties, they are roses from my sister, Ursula Solms’, garden. The dark ones are called, Burgundy Iceberg and the red ones are the very fragrant Papa Meiland. They just look fabulous on their own, nothing more is needed, no foliage even showing. I love how she styled them in an antique brass urn next to the vintage silver trophy and mimicking the fabulous painting in the background (incidentally, painted by my other sister, Nelia Solms du Toit).
