I’ve had some roses I received some weeks ago, to be honest they’ve probably been dead for at least the last week…but they were still such a pretty colour I was loathe to throw them out. Today after picking up yet another set of dead leaves and petals from the rug, I decided it’s time to throw them out.
As I tipped the water out the vase, I looked wistfully at the roses and thought “hmmm, maybe I can save the petals.” Maybe…maybe fleetingly my mind flashed back to romantic movie scenes where rose petals were strewn over lovely clean sheets…on the top of a warm bubble bath or leading the way to “a good time” heh heh! 😉
But usually, the rose petals used in those kind of scenes are still fresh. The thought of getting poked by dry brittle petals and hearing the soft crunch as you squash them doesn’t sound romantic to me. I seriously doubt it would feel romantic either. Lol!
That’s when I thought of potpourri. I’ve researched a few recipes and I look forward to trying something new.
Instead of littering the house with petals, I can create my own sweet, subtle scents with my home made potpourri and enjoy the smell of romance…in the air. 😉
