Aren’t they beautiful? These were the flowers which my lovely husband gave me for Valentines Day. OK so many of you may be thinking ‘they’re not red’ but there is a reason for that. I’ve always loved yellow roses, I don’t really know what it is about them, I guess they look cheerful and summery even in the middle of winter.
Before Hubby and I got together, I was having a conversation at work with a colleague and we were talking about gifts we had received on previous valentines and what we liked. At the time, Hubby (who wasn’t Hubby at the time) and I were working together and shared an office with two other women, he was sat at his desk at the other end of the room
earwigging getting on with his work. I told my colleague that I actually preferred yellow roses to red and that if a man wanted to catch my heart he’d just have to buy me yellow roses and lemon bonbons (because I love them too!!).
I didn’t really think about that conversation again until the following year as I was leaving work and approached my car in the car park to find a bouquet of yellow roses and lemon bonbons sat on the windscreen. At this point we had only been seeing each other about two weeks so I was completely blown away. We have now been together 7 years and each year he buys me my yellow roses and lemon bonbons without fail – until this year that is! As you can clearly see I have my roses but he says that he couldn’t find lemon bonbons anywhere – I guess I’ll let him off just this once.
