Thursday Roses



Today was grocery shopping day at Costco.  I always look forward to
going in, not that I love grocery shopping, but to look at their beautiful
roses and see if there are any that I want to bring home.  I usually come
out with a bunch.  It's one of the only ways that I stay sane in the
winter...having fresh roses!





These are the ones that I picked up today.  Don't you just love the
colors.  They look so airy and spring-like!  I wish that it was spring!





Here I am separating them into different colors to see how many I
have of each color.  I also strip any leaves off that will be below the water.





Now they are being separated into four different bunches.





I brought out three clear vases and one small antique cream jug.  I am
loving clear glass vases these days, but I thought I would mix it up a little
bit with this sweet floral jug.  I am also making my bouquets shorter instead
of leaving the roses long stemmed.  It's just a personal preference that I am
quite liking...it's just something different for a change.





The end result...one vase for the dining room table, one for the family
room, one for the main hallway bathroom (the little jug) and the small
clear vase for on my nightstand.

I do love my roses!

Beautiful, Stacy! Love all the colors so much.

Hubby bought me roses a few weeks ago but now he's out of town so I just might have to go get some for myself. :)

Have a super weekend.

Just beautiful! Great idea to separate them - the more bouquets, the better!
