I simply love her the minute I saw her. I love roses and always wanted to grow them. I found it at Safeway and it was the only one. I couldn’t put it down cuz I felt bad that it was all alone and most likely be thrown out or die in a home with no love. So I bought it!!! It’s a perfect Mother’s Day gift to my mom....and to me. Cuz I’ll be raising it haha
