Wally World was ready for the masses.
As we entered the building there was a huge display of orchids, we walked around the table and enjoyed all the different colors. I have never had an orchid in the house…Far Guy went as far as to read that they like three or four ice cubes a week…I had forgotten that.
It was like a flower gauntlet.
It started to smell like a Funeral Home…you know that heavy “rose” smell that goes along with death… they were all ready in bunches…every color you would expect for roses…and a few I had not seen in years…pale lavender, white tipped in pink…sunset colors… and the usual pink in many different shades, white, off white, yellow, orange and of course red. I must have smiled as I bent down to inhale the smell, different roses smell different…and it must have been a recent shipment as there was not a bent neck to be found…a few had brown edges on their petals…but as a whole they looked good….it might have been a Wally World Miracle! My husband said “I should buy you some roses!” I replied “Nope a trip through that aisle was good enough for me.” He smiled.
Then there were typical red and white bouquets with plastic Be Mine hearts on a stick and balloons. On past the cakes and cookies with every kind of pink and white frosting with valentine greetings and sprinkles.
I have enjoyed my roses outside for many years.
I wish you blue skies and sunshine and someone or some critter (cat or dog) to spend the day with.
We will be staying home, avoiding the masses that go out for supper. We will dine at home. Steak and lobster that we will prepare together and something chocolate!
Happy Valentine Day!
