Well now being older and wiser I have a new perspective on things. Nothing lasts forever and I love the joy of seeing the flowers each day as I enter my kitchen. Knowing someday they will be gone I know to enjoy them while I have them. I love the pretty colors and the smell. There is a feeling about them.
Me and my mom (and the kids of course) stopped by The Fresh Market on our way home and they had a sale on roses. 1 Dozen for only 6.99. They had all colors pink, red, white, yellow. This day I picked red. This is the first time I have had Roses in over 15 years. Usually I buy the carnations. Yes, that's right I bought myself roses.
This picture I actually took last night. The sunset was coming in the kitchen window and it made the rose petals just glow. I could not wait to capture it.
