Now that spring is winding down and summer is right around the corner, I?ve noticed that the roses in my garden are finally blooming! They are one of my favorite flowers and they just so happen to have the pretty impressive title of our National Floral Emblem. So of course, I was excited to find out that June is National Rose Month. That?s right, it?s officially the time to stop and smell the roses! In order to celebrate the rose, long a symbol of beauty and love (even Shakespeare was a fan!), I?ve rounded up some of the best rose crafts I could find.
