 Green with Envy…Time to Smell the Roses

Green Rose

You might be green with envy when you see these stunning roses that TLH (The Lovely Husband) brought home to me the other day. While arranging them, I was really intrigued by the color. Have you ever seen green roses before? It has taken me a few days to get around to photographing them, hence they are not quite as fresh and perky as they were. These photos are untouched - look at  the contrast to the small white flowers. Yes, they really are green and they are really pretty!

What's this got to do with real estate? Absolutely nothing…I just decided to take time to smell the roses.

Hi Margaret...They are beautiful.  It is amazing what they can do with flowers these days.  It's a wonderful thing.

Margaret,

Comparing them to the white flowers really shows off the contrast. I can't recall ever seeing a green rose.

Vickie, Thanks for being my first comment. You always have the sweetest words!

Kate, Yes it is remarkable what can be done with flowers.

Lori, Please share your roses when they are in bloom.

Tamara, Thanks for stopping by. I like that you are helping people rent their Florida homes.

Rich, My first green roses. Was not sure the camera would capture the suble color. The white flowers set them off.

I can't say I have ever seen a green rose.  Who would think of engineering one.  But they are lovely, as is the arrangement.

Lucky you, Margaret, and they are well deserved. I've seen green roses before - they are quite pretty but rather unusual.

You husband knows how to treat you well...and it's well deserved.

Your roses are beautiful.  If you want to some great roses, you should see my mom's garden, I understand this is one of the best years.
