Red Roses



When I was little my Papa grew the most beautiful roses. Whenever I would visit, he would let me pick out a few just for me. He would cut them very carefully with his pocketknife and trim off the thorns so I wouldn't get poked. When I see simple pink and red roses I still think of him. Now, I know roses are predictable for Valentine's Day, but I will always love them! The weekend will be filled with soccer and basketball and cheerleading, so my sweetie brought home roses today. I just had to take some photos! I'm always amazed at how perfectly the layers and layers of petals overlap and these smell divine. Happy Valentine's Day!

Love roses too - hubby brought me home a bouquet yesterday - When we moved, I found all the bags of dried petals that I had saved from 30 years worth of roses!! Have a great weekend and fun with the kids! Cindy
