In the beginning…

I love flower arranging.  My husband knows this and he very kindly bought bunches of bright cheerful colored roses for me to “play” with.  Isn’t he sweet? 🙂

I started with the orange roses.  I trimmed a bit off of the bottom and then took most of the leaves off (just my personal preference).   The orange color is really pretty.

The yellow roses were the largest roses and I really like them. I only trimmed the tiniest amount off of the stems to keep them nice and tall.

I prefer not to have all of the flowers the same height in order to give the arrangement some depth. So I cut some pink roses quite short and have them throughout the middle and the outside of the vase.

The colors all went so well together.  To me, it is quite cheerful!

What a lovely “pick me up”!  And so easy to do.  The vase is a very plain large opening glass vase, which was perfect for the amount of roses.

It might be St. Valentine’s Day tomorrow, but really, why not have flowers in our lives everyday?

Happy “Flowers Every Day”  to you!

In peace,
