    CP's & Roses

    Yesterday I decided to surprise the wife with some Roses.

    Today I was getting everything ready that is outside to move to the unheated garage. I decided to cut a few Sarracenia pitchers and place them with the Roses.

    My wife hates my CP's and I was wondering how long it would take her to notice what I had done............. less then 1 second.
    She asked me why I placed them there, but has not told me I have to remove them.....not yet anyway.





    I think it looks really nice.

    Wow! I love that!! You can give them to me! I'd appreciate it. lol Of course those were your own pitchers you cut so no wild plants were damaged.

    Why in the world does she hate CPs??

    BTW...I hope the pitchers didn't negate the points you scored for surprise flowers. hehe

    But they match! Maybe April 1 would have been a gooder time for that bouquet?

    Nice. I wonder if they'll last longer if you filled them with water?

    I bet the pitchers last longer than the roses do.

    Actually, they won't stay FRESH forever, but may very well dry quite nicely.

    I find that many times they pitchers don't distort when they dry, or if they do, it's not detrimental to their ascetic appeal.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Suzanne,
    My wife dislikes CP's for a few reasons.
    She thinks they are ugly.
    Because of how much I like them.
    The greenhouse........I mean kitchen is full of CP's.
    The deck which has a grill, table, and chair, only has room to sit in the chair and stand to grill. The table is covered with pots of CP's. There are planters with CP's in the corners of the deck and along the rail. Trays under and around the table....You get the idea? LOL

    We have been house hunting and the wife is all for room to build a greenhouse so she does not have to look at them.

    If you come to another Pine Barren trip Suzanne, I'll make you one.
