Love smelling the roses at Rusty’s Markets in Cairns.
Especially bunches of roses woven from edible Pandanus Palm: $5.00 a bunch.
Bargain…..because not only are they tropical, smell clean and would make great decorations for a sustainable wedding, they also naturally…
Bonus! I scored two leg-up cockroaches after the first night in my home.
The weaver/market vendor told me she learnt the weave from her Mother. She aims to build her “rose” business to employ disadvantaged youth to 1) teach a skill and 2) give them a sustainable entrepreneurial activity with low overheads.
What a bunch! LOVE them. Best thing about these roses is that they won’t die, they’ll only dry. I’d love to either see these in wedding bouquets or as Bomboniere.
