Roses and Moonstones and Pearls, Oh My!

June means roses, lots of roses around here.

I have them blooming in my yard.

And we have a local rose festival.
It's a lovely, low key event that features 13 acres of bed after bed of gorgeous roses. I wish I had room to plant one of each.

Wonderful vendors of plant and nature related items, great food (Mozart's is my fav), educational offerings and entertainment round out the fun. Best of all, admission is FREE!
Can you tell I love going to this annual event?

Pearls and Moonstones are June's designated stones. I don't know who, when or why these particular stones were chosen, a Google search found nothing. I would love the answers, so please leave a comment if you know.

I made these earrings using a variety of pearls and moonstone. The large 'cornflake' pearls are so luscious I could eat them with a spoon.
