I am not a big fan of buying cut flowers. For me, cut flowers are bad investment. Why spend money on cut flowers, when you can get a pot of flowers at the same price, or even cheaper? Potted flowers are lively. Cut flowers are on their way to the dumpster.
But, there’s time that I just can’t resist the magic of roses.
Hyvee is having rose promotion right now, 50 cents for one rose.
There is a sea of roses in a rainbow of colors, smiling at me sweetly.
Their pedals are delicate. Their beauty is unique and fills my heart.
Oh, I am so smitten by them.
So I had to go and picked up bunches of them, they sure felt heavy in my arms!
For myself, I love the pure ivory ones and also the ivory with soft peachy/pinky edges. At first, I just put 30 of them in a vase. Then, I thought why not spreading them throughout the house? So, I divided the roses into three vases.
One is gracing the dining table.
One in the living room.
One on the bedside table. I love falling asleep next to them. Their smell is so impossibly to describe. It’s a scent that brings happiness and serenity to the heart.
It was kind of a “splurge” to have spent $ on cut roses. But the joy they give me is beyond money can buy. I feel so pampered … by myself.
Go ahead, do one thing today to pamper yourself. You’re worth it.
