You’re ugly… And you smell funny, too!

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.

(Multiple posts today since it took me longer than expected to do the last one.)

    I like wild flowers. Ken usually gets them for me as opposed to roses.

    Wow, it’s so nice to read that someone else doesn’t like Roses or Carnations! I thought I was weird because of it. I’m not a fan at all of red roses, I did however get this beautiful bouquet of multicolored thornless roses once for my birthday. They were pink, yellow, white, light purple and a baby blue. Very pretty! Gerber Daisey’s are my absolutely my favorite as well. I also don’t understand the obsession with Roses on Valentine’s day! You pay $50 or more for a nice bouquet of flowers that will die in 3 days! It’s a total waste of money. I’d rather have a piece of jewelry or something I would really enjoy, like chocolate. lol Ok, sorry I wrote a book! I’ve enjoyed reading your blog and love your graphics! :)
