Country Whites Weekend #4 - I Wanted Daisies

Good Friday morning  to y’all!
I think I smell spring just around the corner, don’t you?

Welcome to Country Whites Weekend!
We are so thrilled that all you country folk have taken the time to party with us!
We appreciate each and every one of you and your inspiring country whites!

It’s plain and simple and oh, so sweet.
Embrace your country whites and share them here!
Inspire us. Take us home. Fill us with country charm.

Since I’ve been feeling a need for spring lately, I thought about buying some daisies.
Nothing shouts farmhouse simplicity to me than a bouquet of white daises.
When I went to pick some up, the store didn’t have any. Really? Sigh.

Then something caught my eye. Little white roses with an aged look.

I’m not a rose gal. I’m a daisy gal, but these ruffled roses were sweet.

My grandfather had rose bushes and I thought of him immediately.

I think I caught the love of gardening from him as I remember always being his little helper.

So these roses came home with me. And I really like them.

I still love my daisies, but I think I have room for roses, too.

The Farmers Daughter said...

Beautiful photos! Beautiful roses! I'm afraid roses are my favorites--although I had a thing for daisies in college. Pink roses remind me of Aunt Mamie--her favs. My favs have to be red! But, I'll take any color. I'm not picky!
Hugs and Blessings,

Roses are great, too.
Love the bird in the nest.
Thanks for sharing.

The roses are very pretty and a lovely reminder of time with your grandfather. I prefer carnations to roses, but I also have room for roses.

Chenille Cottage said...

Oh...but roses are wonderful, too.
Especially is they are fragrant.
Daisies are nice too...as long as when the petals are plucked it ends with "He loves me".
Have great weekend!

It's funny because I'm not a rose girl either, but I love these roses! The slight aged look makes them so perfect. I'm going to see if have any white posts that qualify for linking up :)

Hi Cindy,
I'm a bit sad that I don't have a post to share this month. Been so busy lately, but I had to hop over and say 'hi'! I am a daisy lover also, but the roses are gorgeous. Mom always said that roses were my dad's favorite flower.
