Paris Roses...

French Rose Petal Tea, original art, 5" x 7"

We've covered New York Valentine chocolates and...

Macaron Hearts, original art, 5" x 7"

And Valentine hearts...

But Paris roses...

Are incroyable, as I was reminded by this email message from Aquarelle.com today...
Demain il sera trop tard!
Tomorrow will be too late!

Why are these so lush..?

Words elude me...

For once...


Even these faux roses (to wear on your wrist or your hair) from Galerie Lafayette are super lush!
We do have this Valentines message from Times Square though...
Can you top this Paris?




Course NO WAY can New York top Pierre Herme's rosey desserts...ahem

BON Valentine Day!

Those roses are so beautiful, when l had a flower shop used to take home all the ones left from a wedding order. Love all colours but white roses are special. They will always be my favorite flower.

roses......just to interject a bummer note......how many women suffer to produce these?
The rate of still births among women working in the Central American nurseries producing these decidedly beautiful roses is 250% higher than the world average.

Sorry, love,
Annie
