Welcome to Bebop's Place

Beauty has been defined as "The quality that gives pleasure to the mind or senses and is associated with such properties as harmony of form or color, excellence of artistry, truthfulness, and originality." Since our responses are totally subjective, I can only speak to what moves me.

I want to share the beauty! I have created a variety of floral products for my Zazzle stores, Bebop's Place and Bebop's Weddings, using my original photographs and designs. I am also constantly amazed at the gorgeous floral products available from the rest of the Zazzle community. I am hoping others will enjoy this blog and even be moved to purchase some of these lovely items for gifts or just for the pleasure of having such beauty around.

Saturday - July 3, 2010

It's the start to our long holiday weekend. Fourth of July weekend seems to symbolize the real beginning of the summer season.

My Tuscany rose is still blooming. She is considered one of the oldest surviving Gallicas. It is believed that the description of the "Old Velvet Rose" in Gerard's The Herball or General Historie of Plantes refers to her. This document dates to 1596. So she's at least that old and probably much older. I featured her on this poster in Bebop's Place.

JKcoder has offered this lovely postage stamp. The rose is a mixed media of water color pencil and pastel.

I love these soft pale pink roses on a Thank You card by SmilinEyesTreasures.

  2. Your Tuscany Rose is magnificent! I hope I've fixed the comment problem on my littlewingdesign blog. I had not customized any settings when I started it up so hopefully it's right now. Hope you have a great 4th!
