Roses are red.....

Good morning Lovelies!!! 
I hope your week is getting off to a great start?
I've only got time for a very quick hello, but I just had to come share a little bit of sunshine with you all.
On Friday I arrived at work nice and early in my usual state of sleepiness, deep in thought about the day ahead. As I arrived at the stage door the lovely lady at the reception called me into her office. I had no clue why, so I was a tad confused.

Imagine my utter delight when I left the stage door with the biggest, most luscious bunch of roses!!
They were from Dennis of course, a gift for Valentines Day!

I simply had to come and quickly share share some pictures of them:

I find Roses soooooooooo GORGEOUS, they are just too perfect.
The variety of colour they come in, inspires me.
I love how when you look closely you see more than just an "Orange rose". The petals ooze  from red through to yellow, making the flower glow with a bright intensity.

Perfectly formed, The petals rap around each other. I could get lost for days in the swirly petal formations.

So elegantly they sit on their long slender stems. It's really no surprise they are a symbol of love. How could you not love them? A feast for the eyes and a banquet for the nose!!! They smell heavenly!

I'll be enjoying these beauties for as long as I can.
They sit in a jug on my dining table, giving me so much joy each time I pass them!

Thank you Dennis!!!
