A Texas Massage Therapist's Garden in June.....

I know I shouldn't brag, but here's the deal. I think a couple of my neighbors have hydrangea envy.

Roses are my favorite. The rose at the top was put in a long stem vase in the massage room and I've noticed that when most people come into the room, they will "take time out to smell the roses" and "BOOM" - they're instantly in a better mood.

So I reckon we should all be tweaked a wee bit and have rosebushes growing out of our armpits. How handy would that be?

Someone cuts you off in traffic? Have a wee sniff of the armpit and you'll instantly feel better.
Come across some crappy customer service? Raise your arm and have a whiff of loveliness.
Some sporting events would become a veritable flower show. Volleyball games would be rose gardens on a court.

I tell you one thing though - after the day I've had today the one thing my pits DON'T smell like at the minute are roses. I'm off to have a shower.

  1. Yeah but what about the thorns? Every rose has it's thorns... like Bret Michaels sings... =)

  2. Thorns have their uses - they'd be good for scratching noses!

  3. Roses are my favorite, too! Your garden looks lovely.

    I dunno if I'd want flowers growing out of my pits...if we're tweaking ourselves, why not just change our body odor altogether?

  4. By the way there are two flower arrangements in hydrangeas. Mophead flowers are large round flowerheads resembling pom-poms or, as the name implies, the head of a mop. In contrast, lacecap flowers bear round, flat flowerheads with a center core of subdued, fertile flowers surrounded by outer rings of showy, sterile flowers.
