I love Roses. Yes, they are a little old fashioned and some would say a bit boring, but they are my choice of flower. I think it is the scent and the memories it gives me. My beautiful Dad was buy me for Xmas and birthdays every year a bottle of Yardleys Rose perfume. I was only little so I didn't quite get how special that was, but I remember it fondly now. I have asked my husband to create the same tradition with out daughter. As you become a mum you realise that you are chief present buyer, so the fact that even though mum had all the presents organised, my dad (who is NOT a shopper) would find some time to pop down to the chemist to buy my bi-annual perfume was really sweet.
