Intertwining Roses

Roses bought for my mother
Roses bought for my mother

It started as a silly conversation but turned into so much more. You see, every special occasion we give our mother a rose. A fake rose that is, we get from 125 street. “normally we get them from Street vendors on 125th street. They are the best and always make them from Love. I'd rather buy them from there and you always get a nice conversation to go along with the gift that you're filling with love for someone else” that was a quote from my mother while talking about it. Those roses in the picture are the roses given to my mother by me and my sister.“The first time I did gave flower I was about your age and we had a fun day oh, and when your grandmother had seen that I took her silly idea that has started as a conversation she almost cried.” That was another quote from the interview with my mom. This was about the first time she ever did it with her mother, my grandmother, and it was a Sentimental time. usually, the boys don't do it they have their own thing. but I'm not going to get into that. my grandmother wanted to start this so we can have something to do as a mother and a daughter because that is a super-strong bond that needs to be nourished.
