{Our Victorian hybrid Pelargonium Rosebuds}

Regardless the heavy rain that we got from the beginning of June till now, we managed to have beautiful Victorian hybrid Pelargonium Rosebuds on June 7. Victorian hybrid features clusters of tiny double blossoms, like a mini bouquet of roses. In years past, the blooms were used for small corsages or to decorate a buttonhole. Have you ever seen them? 
Here you see in my silver Rose vase from left to right: the Geranium 'Pink Rosebud' (Pelargonium hybrid); 'Appleblossom Rosebud' and the 'Red Rosebud'. Below post you find link with address in Connecticut where we obtained also ours. There also is a link to a blogger in Norway with an even more extensive collection.
Not so easy to capture them during cloudy weather but this photo does show them clearly.
'Pink Rosebud' at the bottom; 'Appleblossum Rosebud' in the center and 'Red Rosebud' at the top.
Here is the 'Appleblossum Rosebud' Pelargonium budding inside our greenhouse...

This is a previous photo with the 'Red Rosebud' Pelargonium hybrid.
Yup, that's what my tiny silver vase is; from an antique silver handled walking stick...
Hope you enjoyed these mini rose bouquets!

      Both of us are the son and daughter of a market gardener; so we got dirt under our finger nails. YES, it is a passion and we will keep that alive for as long as we live. It is so rewarding!

      Die Vasen sind so klein aber sehr fein. Die kleinste ist eigentlich eine silbere Schaltfläche von einen Spazierstock die ich auf eBay ganz preisgünstig gefunden habe. Niemanden hat geboten und ich hatte sofort einen Zweck im Gedanken!

  14. Dearest Mariette, these are beautiful!! what a lovely way to start my day of catching up on blog reading and social media. The extreme heat has been a challenge in our rose garden too ~ Mr. G. has managed to bring a few precious blooms into my writing studio.

    Your renovations are looking fabulous! Love that you now have proper lighting going to your gorgeous gazebo - wow truly a labour of love to have it moved. Pieter is such a wonderful soul to be taking on all these projects, creating the perfect setting for you both and your furbabies. The colour choice is brilliant ~ we too are having to decide a colour for our home in the country. The renos at my city home continue and have me driving back and forth between city and countryside ... sorry I haven't been by as much as I would like to. Hopefully I can get back into my regular reading/visits soon. Keeping you in thought and prayers. HUgs and blessings, C. (HHL)

    1. Dearest Celia,
      Once you are in that reno-mode it takes up almost all of your energy. Glad it is getting done and as for the roses, there will be other years coming. It is hard to fight the elements! But for having such sweet geraniums that produce mini-rosebuds is a true joy. I just mentioned in German that I found that mini rosebud vase on eBay as a lone cap for a walking cane, that nobody bid on. With its flat top part I knew right away what I would use it for! Thanks for your visits and you will get to see more of the home revealed.
      Hugs to you and make sure you rest up!

      It is not a rose however; but instead it is a geranium in the form of mini-rosebuds. You can see the 5 dollar cents that I placed next to that tiny silver vase. Links for buying these you find under my post.

      Once again this is living proof how very little things can give so much pleasure. That tiny vase next to the 5 cent coin, is actually the handle of a walking cane. Guess an old Victorian model in silver from which the cane deteriorated and I could snatch it for almost nothing as nobody bid on it but I saw a potential for a cute mini vase for these tiny Rosbud geraniums. Thanks for liking and enjoying them too!

    1. Dearest Michiko,
      Thank you for visiting and for the special love! So your teeth will get done by the end of August. Finally that has been taken care of too. You went through so much for having to replace many of your teeth. If they say that motor biking is the most dangerous hobby, it also statistically causes fatal accidents; 35 times more than a passenger car. But you became a victim too, as a pedestrian. So sorry for what you had to live through. But you are a strong lady and have come a long way. For that I admire you a lot.
