A Day for Flowers

My parents attended a banquet last night, and my mother brought home the centerpiece from their table. I couldn't resist some pics -- it's amazing! It's just bursting with color! It won't last long.
Roses! And white hydrangea!
This is the part with so many roses. They are delicious. Seriously -- how many flowers do you meet that you'd really like to taste?
The color contrast on this one is wonderful.
The bouquet is on the cool porch, sitting next to our painting paraphernalia. It seems we could just dab some color on those blossoms, a little purple here, and a little green there.
This rose seems to have a million curling layers.

Then tonight, Adam and I went to the high school's last football game for the season, and Peter's last game in marching band. It was Senior Parent Night, and each Senior Mom got a flower. Isn't he a cutie? He's kneeling, in the rain and cold :)
I brought this little thing home, and put it in a vase. Adam and Peter are still at the game, watching in the rain. Brr! I came home, soaked in a hot tub, and am happily ensconced in my chair, listening to Christmas music. Ahhh!

  2. LOVELY flowers. I love all the colors!
    You're smart to leave the game early and warm up in the bath! You're REALLY smart to start listening to Christmas music. We're going to do that, too!
