Well, now even WALMART has gone fancy Botany on us all.
YYC has been spoiled by the beautifully primped Blue Roses in the Ginza, Tokyo (10,000 each?). I guess a dozen IS a statement of Love.
Of course, one could do a double back on that old standard:
“Red Roses for a Blue Lady” is a 1948 popular song by Sid Tepper and Roy C. Bennett (alias Roy Brodsky). It has been recorded by a number of performers. The song was revived in 1965 by vocalists Vic Dana and Wayne Newton and instrumentalist Bert Kaempfert; Dana’s version was the most successful, peaking at #10 on the pop chart and #2 on the Easy Listening chart.
–Thank you, Wiki—and to think, I didn’t know there was an ‘easy listening chart.’ There’s a goal for us all to aim for…..
But, Of course as it is Summer and that high SPF time of year, again…a modern anthem: Blue Roses (well, flowers) for a Red Lady.
BAD is BAD. Aloe would be better.
