There was a ceremony last night at Town Hall, and Suzy Q brought me some roses - some white, and some pink. She's my boss.
First of all, in this house there is nowhere to put a large bouquet or vase of flowers where a cat won't go, and maybe tip them over.
The pinks had thick stems and the whites had thin. So I cut the stems and separated them into two more manageable groups. The pinks went into a quart mason jar. The whites are in my favorite bottle for roses.
