Tropicana

My mom had planted rose bushes along one side of the house we lived in when I was a child. My favorite, hands down, was the Tropicana. I loved it's sweet fruity smelling orange blooms. I remember drinking in the fragrance when they would bloom every year. I loved them. My parents moved from that house a long time ago and I have not seen nor smelled that rose in years...until yesterday morning. My wonderful hubby got up bright and early, taking our son with him and bought me some roses. He brought them up to me in bed and I was awakened to that sweet fruity smell and those beautiful coral orange blooms. The funny thing is...I had never told him about the rose bush at my parents old house. What a wonderful surprise and trip down memory lane. Thanks Allan! So what about you? What's your favorite flower? Any fond childhood memories about them?

Hi Cindy,

Haven't heard from you in a while. What a great way to wake up in the morning. I love cala lilies because of their long elegant stems and simple yet sophisticated blooms. Jenny
