Floribunda Ketchup and Mustard

"Fats Green Garden.. thank you but I must say that it didn't make the first winter.  I haven't seen it for sale locally so I'm wondering if it was sold too far north to survive(?)  "

Yes, we had a horrible drought last year also, here in IN. I love the rose, but why did they have to name it Ketcup and Mustard, that's like naming your baby Mayonaise or something - just because the colors are right.

You have some pretty pictures. Is that red and yellow rose the one they call Ketcup and Mustard? It looks just like one I saw in a garden magazine.

me neither Tanya...Michaels has a discount wall of stuff and I am always picking up things to use in mosaic....I bought 4 gorgeous cups to break up at a local thrift store but they are so pretty I can't bring myself to break them. .25 each..  SO im drinking coffee from them and if they break someday I'll use them.

Tanya, tesserae is any materials glued to a surface to form a mosaic. sometimes just called "tess"....I'm excited to start a birdhouse using some of the ideas from the website you posted...my kind of stuff!!

Tanya...they do make gray grout or you can use a little black acryllic paint to make white a little gray...one of these days I want you to glue the tessara to a project and completely grout it.  You wil see a difference i the finished craft.  go ahead and jump in....

Thanks for the welcome Tanya!!  I just stumbled onto this site and am already in love with it!!  Thanks for the fairy forum recommendation.  I might consider that one.  Your gnome picture is cute!!  It was cold too here in WI today.  Looking forward to a warmer week.
