The day after~

I love Pink Roses...on any day EXCEPT Valentines Day~
Call me crazy- but I don't want, or need, a man to buy me flowers under duress.
Give them to me when it's least expected...
These were on sale, the day AFTER Valentines day- Regular price= $38.50
MY price the day after...
$5.00!!!The only thing better than pink roses-
Is CHEAP pink roses! lol





Life is like this... If we get what we want- when we think we should have it, we'll pay too much and enjoy it less. If we wait patiently for a thing we want and love, it will come to us- at a better price, at the right time, and we'll enjoy it more.


At least, this is how it seems to work out for me~

Hugs! :)

hi ... sometimes when i visit your blog and see that header image i cannot believe i made it.

guess who?

i love pink roses, too. and i do not like receiving flowers of any kind as a guilt remedy. fortunately, i never have to worry about that. my life is filled with little surprises here and there, when i least expect it.

everyday is Valentine's day for me. i feel so fortunate.

I love the wisdom of your post. Indeed, it's true.

I wrote you a letter ... will post it soon.

I like the yellow-orange roses, used to give them to Mrs. Phos all the time when we were dating. I still get her bouquets form time to time just to let her know I was thinking about her.

I'd buy them for five dollars.

I'm glad you and your dad had a talk. Maybe some mending will take place eventually.

RH, it's a beautiful header.

$5.00 bouquets are definitely more wonderful than $40 ones. I bought Valentines M & M's on the 15th..2 bags for $2.50...OH YEAH!!! I was eyeballin' those big Russell Stover Hearts too....but I held off.

Lovely pictures Cora!

HUGS!!

Time to move out the Valentines stuff and bring in the Easter candy, just like the Walgreen's down the street.

I told my hubby' to quit giving me expensive roses during Valentine's Day..Said if I wanted flowers I'd tell him...

After seeing your flowers here..I kinda' want some too...maybe in yellow...Oh' and there are violet roses here too..I dunno' how they do that hmmm...

I miss you Cora...I'll write soon...

Just as the old adage goes, "Good things come to those who wait."

I don't need flowers from a man either...Wait, that didn't sound right. Love the B/W photo.

Thanks for stopping by my site, and Cheers!!
