Rose covered dresses for all! Apparently, the new dresser is just a giant photo prop. Even though they are merely grocery store flowers, my Valentine’s bouquet this year looks quite regal. Winter rose season (the time from my birthday until the Valentine’s flowers fade) is almost over. I won’t take hundreds of photos of roses again until they are blooming in my garden, somewhere toward the end of June/beginning of July. I need the reprieve at this time of year. To be surrounded by flowers, at least on a small scale, helps me to make it through to the end of winter.
