The parade of roses continues, with red roses. Like the other flowers in this set, they are made entirely of cordage. Paracord is the main line used, with golden yellow embroidery floss for the pollen in the center of each rose. The green Turk’s Head knot which forms the calyx on the bottom is tacked on with some thread, to make sure it holds its shape.

In another post I showed a top down look at the open blossoms.

The post here is of a white blossom with buds and leaves arranged around it.

The wedding is over and the roses were a hit. The bride and groom packed them up to take with them to another ceremony. I figure they would have left them if they didn’t like them. This is another version of the only true compliment to a cook — silence while they eat, followed by empty plates. People who tie knots may know and appreciate some of the hidden problems, and the level of work involved in making a knot look right. The look of your work, and how it does the job, is all that matters to the happy couple, and rightly so.

Thank you for coming by my site. Let me know what you think; I will greatly appreciate it:
