Has anyone seen blue roses at the store for Valentine's day? I don't believe I have..I'm sure they are a special order.

Yellow was the color of roses by late husband always gave me. Today I talked to a friend's daughter who works at a floral shop and she said long stem roses were $70 a dozen.. Wow !

These really make a pretty bouquet

Here is a couple of blues from the town I live in.

This next picture is one taken this summer at a wedding here in town.. What a festive picture with the umbrellas

This is a picture of my grandson that stayed with me the last few months.
He is in the Navy reserves and one of my favorite valentines sweeties.

Wishes everyone a great week and hope you have a wonderful Valentine's day.

    I've never seen blue roses before. They are gorgeous. I LOVE the summer wedding picture. Nel is getting married in the Fall, and this picture was a reminder of that. What a great idea with the umbrellas, and they are all so colorful. I loved this post Elaine. Happy Blue Valentines Day to you too.
