Stop and smell the roses

Roses roses roses!  Today is all about roses.

today's roses from my valentine.  they smell amazing

Here is a delightful clip of Gene Kelley:

"Moses supposes his toeses are roses.  But Moses supposes erroneously."


And here are some swirly roses that I gave up on:
8"  10" x 0.5" acrylic on canvas
They are a part of my February failure series, so just deal with them.  I'm still looking through pictures of our flowers from last summer.  And still not happy with my attempts at abstractified paintings.

one of our roses from last summer.  they also smell amazing.
We planted knockout roses and regular roses a couple of summers ago.  I wanted the sweet smell of the "real" roses, but also wanted to hedge my bets with the easy care knockouts.  Ironically, the knockout roses died, but the regular rose bush is still going strong.

It's crazy blustery outside today.  We're gonna crack open this Blindfold wine and dig into the chocolates.  Hope you are having a happy Valentines Day!
