Take Time To Smell The Roses

Take time to smell the roses and share them with a photo.

When I received these beautiful roses they were lovely  tight buds. Within hours of arranging them, they exploded into this gorgeous array. Wonder why? Maybe it was the warm water I used.

Margaret,

They are beautiful.  Where did you get them from? Special occasion?  It must have been the warm water.  Must smell wonderful now!

Margaret,

Taking time to smell the roses in all the small things really brings joy!  Just smiling all day through my errands and holding a door open for someone, playing with the grand baby on the floor....simple things that make us happy!

oh, and your roses exploded because they wanted to make YOUR day!!!

Margaret, The warm water will make them open, the opposite of the florist keeping them in a cooler to keep the blooms closed.

I would but it has been rainy all week. There's a reason why they call this sunny S. Florida, just not this week.

Roses remind me of childhood. Ripping all the heads off in my Mother's rose garden to make rose water perfume. I was not a popular child that day!

I am always so worried about making them last that I sometimes forget to worry about loving them!  Yours are just beautiful.

Kristin, Visual bouquets are very nice!

Shelley, Thanks. It is fun to photograph them as soon as I finish arranging them. That makes them last!
