“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”
Combine those two and you will have a pretty rose bookmark to put inside your book.
Or use it for your next blind date like in the movie You´ve got mail (1998) when Shopgirl (Meg Ryan) brought a book and a rose to her blind date with NY152 (Tom Hanks).

How the rose was made & how to do your own
For the Rose: similar pattern can be found here
Green part of rose: chain 6 then form a ring, in the ring do several dc (20-26), next row do 9dc in same chain, hop over 2 or 3 chains and do a slip stich, then start all over. I got 4 pedals this way. I attached it then with the right sight out to the rose, to hide the bottom of the rose, here I also attached the chain.
Chain: make a chain to fit your book, I chained about 55.
Leafs: I did a leaf by chaining 8, then doing a sc, hdc, dc, trc, dc, hdc, sc on one side then on the same on the other side. But here is a nice picture tutorial for crocheting leafs as well. Do two then attach to the chain on both sides.
