Hahaha, I routinely end up in places I didnít intend to visit and more often than not there happen to be roses for sale Ö
Nice specimens, Paul, Perfect Moments gets some very nice comments on HMF: though as nails and bloom factory went with one photo there.

Really like Hot Chocolate and Angel Face. I was going to get AF this year but comments about BS put me off, hope it goes well for you, it's such a beauty. Don't know anything about Hot Choc but love the colour. Let us know how they go.
Next time you go for a wander, leave your credit cards and cash at home! LOL

Youíve got to take at least a little bit of cash or else youíve got to go all the way back home, if thereís a rose there thatís on the wish list Ö Iíve been there!
When I first became aware of what was happening to me, I tried to fight it and thought of all sorts of diversions, e.g., Iím allowed only red roses, only white rose, only OGRs, etc., totally useless strategy. Now I just let it happen, its pointless to fight it, the more I struggle against it the more roses I seem to buy, because of the adrenaline factor Ö
But I have noticed that I get the same high walking out of a nursery with only one rose as I do with multiple purchases.
