Discount Roses

Apparently Walmart was expecting a lot of romance that didn't happen.  They still had tons of roses left over and on clearance the Friday after Valentines.  It took me a few minutes to dig though all the soft, brown and sad flowers, but I found enough beauties that I had to make a choice of which ones to purchase.
I did a quick mental inventory of all my tablescaping supplies and decided on a pale green/yellow dozen since I knew I had some things that would work well with the colors.  


Homemade focaccia using Cooks Illustrated recipes.  I would post it, but it didn't turn out as good as my old stand by recipe.  Looks pretty though doesn't it?
