Oh, they're so beautiful! Roses are my favorite flower. What's yours Cheryl? Everybody?
mine are violets, lilacs, anything lavender/purple, but I am looking at 8 long-stemmed roses from hubby (an apology), 2 each: red, rose, yellow, & white. If they were all as beautiful as these 3" blossoms, roses might become my favorite. I worked in a flower shop for 2 years & numerous complaints may have colored my mind darkly. For our 20th anniversary, he presented a mixture of 5 colors in 20 roses, but for the 25th, it was 2 dz red with a silver/rose color for the last one. He's English & great at offering flowers for no reason, besides events & contrition. Local Christian radio station just quoted 65% of women consider roses or flowers to be a romantic gesture.
I love violets or pansies.My husband knows better than to get me roses. I don't like cut flowers -- ah, the waste! and for some reason can't abide the smell of roses.Now a box of chocolates shaped like roses.....
What a perfect rose! I seriously need to move mine this fall. I have no idea where its going to land, but it is too crowded next to the lilac bush and the clamentis.
Why is that saying, "Roses are red, violets are blue.."? Violets are violet! Purple! I like pansies too, Cheryl. And, I'll take a box of chocolate shaped like anything. LOL!
I have the cutest pansy picture taken years ago -- will go hunt that down. In case you haven't noticed I fancy myself somewhat of a photographer, too.
