Of course it’s that time of the year to celebrate the special ones in your life. It doesn’t have to be a boyfriend or husband but the special people in your life that let you know they care. Call them up and go to lunch. Buy yourself a special treat. Or just ignore it and enjoy your day!
As some bloggers know there are times when the endless enthusiasm for blogging dissipates. I hope to get my drive back soon but today I have a few photos from the past that celebrate the loveliness of roses. I love all flowers not just roses. Call me crazy but I have always thought I would love to live in a florist’s shop. Now I don’t want to be a florist but to wake up to all that beauty every morning would be unbelievable.
My mister knows how much I love flowers. In addition to his day job, he is a musician. He is a guitarist and singer, playing at many venues, including weddings. One night after a wedding, the people cleaning up after the wedding were throwing away all the flowers. He couldn’t believe it and went right behind them and loaded up his van. (What blue bloods we are ;). When I woke up the next morning the whole bottom floor of our house was filled with the flowers. He does have his good side! With all those glorious flowers I felt like I should go get prettied up like Eva Gabor looked every day on Green Acres. But that would take this woman a couple of years……
This is one of the first photos I took for the blog. I was using my cell phone and took it outside because the light was so much better. It was freezing cold. The berries was still holding on from Christmas and I had gotten these beautiful roses but they were past their prime. So I plucked the heads off and served them on a plate for the photo.
I had on old mirror on the back porch and got to play with it some before somebody broke it. Hmmm… wonder who, asks the the lady who is always breaking things. It gave me extra roses in the reflection in this photo.
Roses that matched my vintage plate so well.
My trusty cherub will release a heart with his bow and arrow at you if you aren’t careful.
Found these roses growing in the weeds, on the side of the road.

Roses from the yard fill up the sugar container in this vignette.
The roses go so well with the plate. It wasn’t planned either!
