{Happy Easter with Our Pelargonium 'Rosebud'}

This year Easter is quite late and thus we have NO daffodils like for last year's {Easter Season} ← (click to go to that blog). So I had to fill my Villeroy & Boch egg vases with different blossoms this year. Our Pelargonium hybrid 'Pink Rosebud' and 'Appleblossom Rosebud' were just perfect! So have a look...
The 'Sheep' place card holders with a vintage cream porcelain egg tray and chicken salt & pepper with the Villeroy & Boch egg vases. Because of the color blossoms, I used only the pink and green egg vases. Those 'Appleblossom Rosebud' ←(click it) and 'Pink Rosebud' ←(click it) Pelargonium are available at Logee's Greenhouse. Click on each name to go to their website's page for it.
See my previous blog about {Victorian hybrid Pelargonium 'Red Rosebud'} ← click it. That makes now a family of three different Pelargonium hybrids with Rosebuds. They are so lovely! A study in poetry as Logee's is calling the 'Appleblossom Rosebud'.
Just like true roses are these 'Pink Rosebud' Pelargonium...
The real chicken egg gives you a good idea about the size of the blossoms!
Those 'Appleblossom Rosebud' Pelargonium are so special...
On April 12, they started budding up and were just perfect for a great Easter bouquet. 
Hope you all do have a Happy Easter with lots of sunshine! 
Thanks for your visit. 


  1. Love your pelargonium Rosebuds - they are gorgeous-we have a special affectionate name for them here in Africa.."Malva blomme" enjoy the rest of your weekend!
