of us can 'survive' perfectly without having gorgeous colours
in our lives, personally, I like my senses being awakened
every day with amazing displays of colurs, besides being stimulated
with amazing smells coming from the world's most unique plants.
Most recently I keep buying, or to be more specific, my 'special
somebody' keeps surprising me with amazing roses provided
courtesy of Tesco and their long lasting bouquets of 15 roses,
all prices at only five pounds!!!!!! Not only are the roses
amazing, whether red, burnt orange, pink or white, but some
of them last more than one week!!!! And I couldn't be happier!!!!
follows though is my dedicated work to ensure these roses
will be happy in my home and will keep smiling at me every
day, by changing their water at least every other day and
cutting the stems 1 or 2 inches shorter at least once during
their 'stay with me'. No need for Plant food, this is a secret
very few florists will tell you: roses will not 'understand'
much, if 'enhancement' is added to the water.
it is my duty to make a gorgeous arrangement, by placing the
roses in see through glass vases, my favourites, whatever
shape they are in, whether square, round etc, and cover them
in cellophane tighten up with 'earthy' looking strings and
then placing the roses in green and pink supports as shown
in the YouTube video undeneath.
that however much I am struggling with my lemon and orange
trees I got recently, is not that easy to make them happy
in our cold London weather. One tree was completely bald and
lost it's leaves in under 2 weeks after being delivered, although,
just when I gave up on him, thinking what to do with the pot,
new branches started growing and now, many weeks later, reached
almost the half of the original tree!!!
my gorgeous orchids, all giving up on me after just several
weeks, with the exception of one, that started blooming after
several years, smiled at me for several days, then left me
only with it's leaves.
least I know that I can always count on my Dragon tree, growing
for more than 3 metres, growing more branches despite being
re-potted in November and growing like mad, as if saying 'no,
you can alwasy rely on me'......... and my gorgeous roses.
