I love flowers!
A single stem or a bouquet of flowers never cease to make me smile.
Flowers have always been a favorite gift of mine, either to receive or give.
I light up when I receive flowers!

In my mind they represent love, life, and happiness.

I cut these white Roses from my yard this morning...
I can't believe how many there were to cut!

I noticed how each one is distinctly unique and not perfectly the same like most of the roses you buy at a flower shop.
I think this makes them even more special!..
so I took a picture to share their beauty.
