Do Roses = Happiness ?





Yesterday I bought 2 bunches of roses. My local flower farm sells them for $10 a bunch. I always split them up to make 3 or 4 smaller bunches, which I place around the place. They last me all week if I change the water every few days.
Whilst eating breakfast this morning I realised that they kind of co-ordinated their surrounds (which is unlike me). I had a chuckle because when I got home at dusk yesterday I randomly placed them about. Not thinking about it too much. Oh the power of a rose!

  40. Roses always make me happy. In the garden or in a vase they always make my heart sing. In the midwest about the only place we can buy flowers is in the grocery store and they are usually past their best. Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures.
