Rosy Kissing Ball


You've seen lovely green plant-covered kissing balls at Christmas time, right?

Many people hang them outside on their porches.

Well, my very dear friend, Christine, paid me a pre-Easter visit.



She had a big surprise for me.



It was a pink rose-covered "kissing" ball for Easter!

She said she saw it in a store and knew it was perfect for me, since she knows how much I love pink roses.

What a loving and thoughtful gesture it was for her to buy it for me.

Have you ever in your life seen anything so pretty?

I just love it. 

Hubs hung it on the front porch.

It's sooooo attractive and I love driving into the driveway and getting a glimpse of it.

I'm soooo grateful.

WHAT DO PINK ROSES MAKE YOU THINK OF?

It is an original idea to hung it on the porch. I like it because I love red I would like to have a red one. This one is also nice.

Susan,it's so pretty. Lovely friend to buy you such a lovely gift. Pink roses make me think in anticipation of what my new planted rose Pierre De Ronsard will produce soon

Pink roses are one of my favorite flowers; what a beautiful addition to your front porch and you can see it through the sidelight while inside. Very pretty. I'm sure you will find many creative uses for it.

That is so pretty. I don't believe I've ever heard of a kissing ball. Pink always makes me think of little girls - especially the pink "Weebocks" my granddaughter had when she was little.

Susan,
Your pink rose ball is delightful. You know, the pink rose is my favorite after the red rose. Pink roses just make us happy, don't they?
