Rose hued eyes

You love the roses - so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?

Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on.
They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be
Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!
- George Eliot

If you had not picked it up by now, I have a thing for roses.
And that explains all kinds of assorted rose jewelry lying on my dressing table.
I also love receiving bouquet of roses (and actually all kind of flowers).
Last year was the first year I had to celebrate my birthday without my bf
and I was feeling quite sorry for myself
In fact, I was nasty and in the foulest mood ever
while chatting with him on skype the night before.

So imagine my amazement and bewilderment when the florist
delivered the prettiest bouquet of white roses in the morning.

I was totally surprised and so touched that it brought tears to my eyes.
To think he had actually ordered the flowers online from Edinburgh some time ago.

I was so happy that day, it's silly really how a bouquet of roses can bring you such joy!

Do you have a sweet story to share of receiving pretty bouquets of flowers?

P.s. To anyone who would love to exchange links, do drop a comment as I'll be updating my blog roll soon:)



I love roses and so does my mom. What girl doesn't, right?!

Your story is so precious. It just brings the greatest joy to your day, doesn't it?

My boyfriend had to go out of town for his job a couple of months ago, and when he returned, he surprised me with yellow roses. :)
I dried them, and I keep them in a clear jar shaped like a kitty. :)

a bouquet of white roses~~how preetty!! i never get to celebrate my bday with my bf, cos mine's in jan & i'm usually back in s'pore for the hols. but he did log onto a singapore florist webby & made an online order... the roses were a deep red :)

i remember the 1st time i received flowers frm him was when i ignored him for couple days. he immediately made an online flower delivery. i was working @ my parents' firm then & was totally shocked to receive the bouquet! my colleague thot her bf had sent them to her & was so disappointed. she asked loudly "who's liling (my chinese name)"?

then my mum took over the bouquet & she was so cute. she said in a very concerned voice: "who sent flowers to my daughter?" N then she went "who's junting (bf's chinese name)"? (my mum wasnt very updated abt the details between me & him then)

i was...THE LAST PERSON to get my hands on that bouquet that was... meant for me! ;D

R. said...

Last year,my boyfriend couldn't celebrate Vday with me(due to army here in SG) and I was so upset!

But then when I when to his home to get something,I saw a huge bouquet of roses on the table and a sweet note.
And my heart melted at that very moment!!

Those roses are just gorgeous, lucky girl! I love to buy flowers for myself, if anything. You're right -- they do something to uplift one's mood. Happy Friday to you, Sher!

Farah said...

wow your bf is really something! and that was so sweet of him to actually do that from thousands of miles away. What is he studying and how many years more does he have there? xoxo

Little Monarch said...

lovely sweet words from george eliot. i love the feeling of sleeping and waking at the same time. that magical moment when you first wake up in the morning but are still half sleeping. thats when the best ideas are developed I think.

roses are beautiful I love tulips. Sadly I have never recieved flowers from a sweetheart but when I was in hospital I recieved dozens and dozens!

Happy weekend!

C. said...

Awww, I really enjoy reading the story about your last birthday and the bouquet that your boyfriend bought for you. - When my boyfriend and I started dating, when he came to visit me for the weekend, he would show up at my day every morning with a yellow rose. It was so sweet and totally made my day.

I really like this post. The pictures of roses are so beautiful and your outfit is also lovely. I hope you have a good weekend.

Beautiful post... Love the pictures of the roses. I just adore flowers... And while I prefer them out in nature as they should be, I can't say I wasn't smiling when I was given a single red rose last night by a friend.

Sweet wee story! I love roses too - the lavender ones are my particular favourite because they're such an unusual colour. You look adorable as always, lovely.
