This is the rose that a friend of mine gave me on my 40th birthday. I put it in the refrigerator at the hotel while we were there in Texas and I brought it home when we came back from our vacation. I removed it from the stem and now serve as one of my display in our bedroom. I actually plucked some petals from it and put it in the card that I gave to my husband during Father's Day, he loved it!
I wanted to preserve the thoughtfulness so I air dried it. Isn't it pretty? So there goes my rose from Texas.
