I had a thought. Maybe this year, instead of a rose bouquet, you like a rose bush.
Wouldn't it be fun to pick out a beautiful rose from a catalog (or online) and then buy & plant it this Spring in honor of Valentine's Day? You'll have romantic roses in the garden all Summer long.
This is very romantic suggestion. You could choose any variety you want: "Falling In Love", "Truly Yours", "Summer Love."
Tape a picture of it on the refrigerator and look forward to bloom after bloom.
(This rose is a David Austin English Rose that was named after David's mother, Lillian Austin.)

Day 7: Plan to have flowers in your life - either by picking up a bouquet at the grocery store or by planning a symbolic planting this Spring.
