Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine's Day roseI went to dinner last Friday night with “the gang.” Karen’s husband, John, brought roses for all the girls. Beautiful and they smelled so good! As I was leaving the restaurant, I started thinking about what I would do with this rose — my cats will tear it apart, spill the water and then the dogs will eat the pieces — and someone will likely throw up rose parts (of course).

One I got home, I trimmed the stem down to better fit the height of the sturdiest vase. Then, a brainfart! Unconventional, but an idea none the less. I will put my rose in the refrigerator!

And so there it is… on the top shelf of the fridge where I can enjoy it each time I open the door. And each time, it is a surprise because out of sight really is out of mind.

Bet mine lasted longer than anyone else’s.

Happy Valentine’s Day, all.

    That rose lasted almost 2 months in the refrigerator before it started to lose its petals. Wow! I was surprised at that.

What do you think?
