Roses


Aren't they beautiful? Fresh cut flowers always make me feel so good. These Roses were inexpensive (25 for $19.) at Sams. The have lasted a week and are just so darn lovely!
I am in to white lately. So simple, yet so elegant and stately.

I wonder what they smell like. Someone told me the other day that red roses have the strongest fragrance of all the roses. Wonder if it is true.

I love it to walk into a house and smell roses. I guess it is from the time when my sister-in-law had roses in her garden and she would always have a couple of vases filled with roses in the house. I enjoyed visiting her and I suppose the smell of roses will always bring memories of our times together.

Maybe thats why I am favoring the whtes... These have a very faint scent. You have to get up next to them to really smell them. I am not a big fan of flowery scents, but love to see feel flowers. Red roses smell like a memory of old people to me. Yellows were my favoites, until recently. The whites filled in my fishbowl vase & clear marbles to hold are just so elegant to me.

I DO THAT! And I never put a fresh bar of soap in the shower when I use it to its end, some things can not be mastered these two are just a few of mine just ask Nancy has I receive the same lectures for the past twenty four years. The funny part is she believes that I actually listen to these speeches.

Lily Allen nice selection! I have a friend at Universal that signed her she is a fun girl.

White Roses: Aphrodite at one point runs to help her wounded boyfriend Adonis and cuts her self on the thorns of a white rose bush. Her blood falling on the bush turns the roses red, symbolizing the way innocence and purity change to experience and motherhood.

Some of my garbage is for my own enjoyment.
