Sometimes I wonder if I should change the name of my blog to "Rose Blossom Dreams".
Roses aren't my favorite flower, although I do like them and I am starting to love them.

I love the tartness of this special tea.
I understand that it is high in Vitamin C, too.
Oh, and the rose pattern can be found here.
