Birthday Rose

My roses began blooming this week. They are one of my favorite parts of summer. When my summer baby was born, a friend gave me a Longaberger basket with instructions for creating a special mother-daughter tradition. Each year I give my daughter a rose from our garden on her birthday. I hang it to dry and place the dried petals in the basket. These petals are meant to be sprinkled down the aisle on her wedding day. I love that our garden may one day play a part in one of the most important events of her life.

That rose is beautiful and so is your tradition.
