Three days ago I saw a bunch of red roses neatly wrapped with transparent plastic inside a bucket on the backyard of my house. They were pretty. Later my mom told me that my brother had bought them for his girlfriend. I guessed it was their anniversary. Whatever.
I am an avid flower lover even though I don’t buy it regularly to indulge myself. I love roses (regardless the thorns) and tulips. I love their beautiful various colors. Apparently I received some of them from my boyfriends. They gave me white and pink roses only, since I am a big fan of those two colors. My current boyfriend, Ari, sent me a heart-form bouquet of white-and-pink roses on my birthday last year. I loved it very much! You can see the pictures (pic 3&4) taken from my mobile phone. Please don’t mind the pictures quality.
Sending flowers esp. roses are always related to love and romanticism. It’s an old-school way but still effective till now to express your feeling for someone you love. That’s why every man can be Casanova or Don Juan with little help from florist and Hallmark. But still, it depends on how much money you guys dare to splurge for your ladies. Alternatively nowadays, men choose Hershey’s and Tiffany’s to please their lovers; so sweet yet bankrupting. LOL. What’s so great about Tiffany’s anyway? I haven’t got any; does anyone want to give me so that I can try one? *grin*
