I want one!

Do you know how hard it is for a total flower lover to keep parting with her creations? Very! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love handing off a beautiful bouquet to a bride, knowing it is just perfect for her, and saying goodbye forever to all the incredible flowers that are in it. But today I took one glimpse at the bucket of leftover flowers from last weekend's wedding, and thought: I WANT ONE.

A gorgeous bouquet, that is.

So I made up this little number, and we have been parading around together all day long. I have to say that carrying a big bouquet of roses around makes you feel mighty special...
These beauties all came from Peterkort Roses in Oregon. I like them best when they are on their very last legs, fully open, about to make good friends with the compost pile, but not before breathing one last breath of gorgeousness into the world!
 It's a lucky life, one spent working with flowers....
