The flower prices had not yet been doubled for Mother's Day so one day this past week I bought a dozen of roses for my husband. Whenever he sees roses of any color, his whole face lights up. The ones I purchased are deep apricot and yellow, an attractive combination. They came from Colombia, South America.
Wow! They sure are well-traveled roses!
The look on my "love's" face when I gave him the roses made the purchase worthwhile. He put them in a vase, added some greenery from our yard, and placed them on the kitchen table.
Sitting at the table, the afternoon sun came streaming into the room and illuminated the roses. It was as if someone had poured melted gold over the petals. Filled with awe and excitement, I grabbed my camera (of course!) to take pictures for all my sweet blog friends. I wanted so much to share such beauty.
Hope you enjoy the roses in all their sun-splashed glory.
For all mothers out there, happy early Mother's Day. For those of you who are not mothers, the roses are for you, too, just for being YOU!
