Last night I had the most wonderful surprise. A bouquet of beautiful roses from my stepson. I love all the colors--yellow, white, and shades of red. I tend to save everything my stepsons give me--or try to so I may dry these when they open a little more. One of the bouquets of pink sweetheart roses he gave me I dried in the microwave (between paper towels on low-medium power 30 seconds at a time) and used on a doll I made in a Pam Gross class. I call her Rose Dryad. Thank you Ed for being so thoughtful. I am very very lucky.
