A to Z Challenge: Roses

What is a courtship without roses?   One of the sweetest things that DH did for me that summer that we met was to bring me roses from his mother's flower garden.  Who wouldn't appreciate a beautiful home grown rose presented by the cutest guy around?   I don't have any photos of my Mother-in-law's roses right now, but they always have been are always will be much lovelier than these ones from my own yard.

Courtship shouldn't end after the wedding day, and DH would bring home flowers fairly often long after we were married.  At one point he had an arrangement with a local florist where he bought a vase, and then would periodically take it back to the florist and have them fill it up again.   Am I a spoiled lady or what??


  1. That is so sweet! I agree, courtship shouldn't end, romance needs to be kept alive and little gestures on both sides mean so much, a flower, a note, a treat. Papa Bear is the best, he will often come in from work with his hands behind his back, maybe holding a chocolate treat, or a bouquet of wildflowers he picked. <3
