Just A Little Prettiness 3
Saw these old fashion roses (Kentucky Derby if I'm not wrong) at our local flower shop after our Sunday lunch. One of the tummies was kind enough to buy them for me as a token of his appreciation of my hard work in the kitchen. They perfumed the whole living room with the most familiar scent, for a moment I was transported back to my childhood in Cameron Highlands and I'm most grateful for this little gift!!
I am so glad to see that old breeds of roses that look and smell like roses are starting to reappear in certain florists, just as heirloom tomatoes that taste and smell of tomatoes are becoming easier to source. We do have to pay a little more for them but they are definitely worth every cent of it!!!
I couldn't quite capture the real colour which is a stunning dark crimson!
