Can't Go Wrong with Roses

Roses are gorgeous.  They look wonderful anywhere and I love to grow them in my garden.  But the best roses are the unexpected kind!  I was having a bad day and Karl came home from work with a dozen (and it's not even Valentine's Day yet!)  I was beside myself with gratitude, not just for the roses, but for the wonderful husband I have.  I couldn't keep them all to myself so I am sharing them with you as well!

I couldn't resist taking pictures to show the way the sun was shining through the bright orange petals.   

I love the contrast of the orange against the gray zinc of my french pitcher.

Thank-you for letting me show you this surprise treat.  And thank-you to Karl, just for caring.
