everything's coming up roses

i love roses. i love to buy roses. i wish roses would last longer than a week or so because i don't like it when they die and i don't have any more roses left. when the roses die, i throw them away. or not. i have found a way to extend the life of a bouquet of roses. these rose leftovers really turned out well, and looked good in a little pottery vase, although i admit they are obviously not as glorious as roses in full bloom. even after the rose blossoms faded and fell off their stems, these star-like seed pod shapes that were left behind were cheerful and quite nice, i think. festive and even a little christmasy. roses coming up roses.....
