"I HATE ROSES!", are you kidding me, like who hates roses? Well, my friend does and if you watch my video here (www.youtube.com/nickystansbury), then you will get the inside scoop to see how this was disclosed to me. Oh and I better be the rose police at her funeral. No roses allowed at her funeral either.
I am a romantic and LOVE ROSES!!! I also love orchids and other tropical foliage. As a human I guess I had lost sight that no two people like the same things with regards to flowers. I mean society has given us the representation that LOVE=ROSES. She is a very loving person and just loves wild flowers a lot more and carnations, she's okay with that too.
I think the real story behind her hatred for roses isn't that it's the lack of appreciation for them, it's the $$$ and the fact that they don't last as long as a wildflower, which also doesn't costs nearly as much as roses do. (although we didn't go into detail and I'm just taking a wild guess about her reasoning behind the "they stink and they die").
I have to admit that I have tested the wildflower theory and can see where she's coming from (in a frugal sort of way). One of my daughters picked some wild flowers for me and they lived for over a year(without water). I actually did a test to see how long they would live and it was over a year in a jar of marbles. That being said I still just cannot support "I HATE ROSES" at this time. Sorry Angela, I LOVE You:)
Anyway, this conversation got me thinking about what flowers might represent in our personality so here's a just for fun little quiz if you want to see what kind of flower you are https://www.flowermag.com/quizzes/what-kind-of-flower-are-you/. My results are below. It did make me chuckle and most of it was accurate.
You are a Tulip! At one time, the frenzied demand for these bright, happy bulbs made the tulip one of the most expensive flowers on the market in Holland and Turkey. While tulips have become more affordable in the modern age, tulips have become synonymous with fame and yellow bulbs are often called “smiles of sunshine”. You share the limelight with the tulip as a popular individual who can light up your surroundings and make even perfect strangers feel perfectly at ease. You are an expressive, charismatic type of person who is adept at making others feel comfortable and special, and your charm is often deeply influencing to others whether you are aware of it or not. Often artistic and active, your expressive nature and youthful energy ensure your presence is never forgotten. I'll take being a tulip :) Let us know what type of flower you are in the comments and if you are or disagree with this just for fun quiz.
