My husband very rarely brings flowers home. So when he did bring home roses the other day, I was very happily surprised. I love roses, but never buy them myself because of their usually very short lifespan. These roses, however, have lived in a vase for about 10 days now.. They are the longest lasting cut roses I've ever had. I guess the air in the new house is perfect for them. Anyhow, I have been admiring them day in and day out. I just love the vivid hot pink color and the innocent white.
