If you have been a reader for a while you will recognize a term I use, “Poor Mans Roses”. My declaration originated many years ago when my daughter was about three years old. We went to the local market and stopped to get fresh flowers for the table. A beautiful bundle of pastel carnations caught my eye straight away. A woman was looking at the price of the roses and the price of the carnations and said, ” I’ll go cheap”. I said, “you won’t be disappointed, they last for weeks if you keep their water fresh.” Before I walked away I added, ” they are my favorites, I guess they are poor man’s roses”. Because carnations are one of my favorite flowers. My hubby knows that well and even though he would prefer to give me roses, he gives me what he knows will make me smile. Aren’t these pretty.I sure do love that man of mine.
