In honor of having reached Day 12 of my 31-day barnstorming blog extravaganza, and to give you a breather from all those "word" things I've been throwing at you, today I present this bouquet of luscious roses. Courtesy of Whole Foods, $10.
I'm more of a rumpled farmhousey flower person, but these called to me. They have such a regal presence that I keep doing a double-take when I see them. It feels like this woman is sitting at my table patiently waiting for me to serve tea. Or perhaps it's this woman, whose patience is clearly growing thin. Wait! No! If I'm lucky, my guest is this woman who is too in love with my silver candelabra to notice that I haven't served tea yet. Crikey! I'd better run put on the kettle now.
