I went to my favorite rose purveyor to pick up some pink roses like I had at Christmas.
My favorite rose purveyor is, by the way, Safeway grocery store. They sell a dozen roses for $9.99 and a dozen and a half for $12.99. So for $25 I can get two and a half dozen beautiful, long-lasting (guaranteed for at least 5 days and often last longer) roses.
I noticed that the roses which came by the dozen were longer stemmed but I usually clip the stems anyway when arranging according to the size of the vase.
I had enough roses for two vases in the living room, a silver teapot full in the dining room, and a copper kettle’s worth in the mudroom.
They look nice on their own but I’m going to get a little filler for around the edges of the vase.
I’ll have to check the backyard.
What’s your go-to flower?
