My love affair with roses must have started when I was very young. I can remember one Saturday when my mother, sister and I went for our weekly visit to "downtown" Carlsbad, New Mexico. It was close to Mother's Day, and I was around six or seven years old. We were shopping in J. C. Penneys, and I must have asked my mom for some money so I could go shopping for her a Mother's Day present. I went next door to Woolworths and found this most gorgeous rose (at least in my mind's eye it was). It was a huge pink cabbage rose, plastic of course, this was way before silk flowers and dried flowers. Well, let me tell you. I was so in love with my present that I promptly went back to J. C. Penneys, and proudly announced, "Happy Mothers Day, Momma!" and handed her that rose. My mom had that rose proudly displayed for years.
Wishing you all a rosy week ahead. Vicki
