A Rose is a Rose

Scented Roses 

Oh, I love these roses. $3.99 a bunch at Trader Joe's so I bought two this weekend. Pink, and white. First, I had them in one large vase. Then, I split them up into several small vases. However, they were all in the same room as I photographed them. 18 roses all together. Beautiful to look at. 

And then, I walked by them in the evening and the scent of all those roses hit me full on. Instant migraine! Unfortunately, I am sensitive to many scents including flowers. Who would think such lovely things from nature would inspire such a reaction. Ah well, I would put them throughout the house if Nipper would not make a meal of them.

Regardless, I'll still be buying roses. Maybe I just won't buy so many. I think I'll bring some to work this week, well, maybe one in a bud vase!

Love those roses. And the mini chalk board too.

The roses are so perfectly formed that they seem almost unreal. So beautiful. And to put out so much fragrance to cause a migraine is astounding! Lovely flowers and a set of lovely photos. Thank you for posting.

Beautifully displayed. The last couple bunches of roses my husband brought home had no scent - which considering the possibility of having a similar reaction, might have been a good thing for me.

I love your pictures. Debbie and I went antiquing over the weekend. She has been doing furniture painting with milk paint and chalk paint…I'd like to try but I'm not up for another hobby! :D Hope al is well with you!
