I’m talking to you, roses & carnations.
I’m not a fan of either flower. I never have been. I find them both ugly & smelly. In the past when I received either of these I would express gratitude because the effort was there and some effort is better than none. However, I couldn’t help but think, “Don’t you know me at all?”
Carnations look wilted and weird. Roses… I don’t know. I never understood what the big deal was about them. Perhaps someone who loves roses can explain it to me because I really don’t get the insane price jump around Valentine’s Day. Do women really love roses or are they just conforming? For me, in addition to the not enjoying how they look or smell, they have those stupid thorny stems that piss me off.
So, what are my favorites?
- Yellow Tulips – They’re cheerful & happy.
- Gerbera Daisies – Especially yellow or pink but I also love deep red or orange.
- Orchids – All of them. They’re stunning.
