A passion for roses

In our house roses are part of the celebration.
We definitely stock our house for
Christmas.  There are wonderful inexpensive
flower stores in Toronto and ourmy favorite is
Yang's on Avenue Road, where the staff in
the family run business are friends.  They
know that my favorite roses are Oceana for the
gorgeous smell of a rose garden.

At Christmas I put a big antique jug of
roses on the coffee table in the studio.  Mmmm.

Have a filling-your-house-with-flowers day.
