"Roses are everywhere. Standard varieties can be found at supermarkets across the country and are bred for their shelf life and size; many are imported from Central or South America. Garden roses are a little harder to come by, but the delicate layers of petals and strong fragrance set them apart from the standard varieties. Use warm water in the vase and gently blow in the center of your roses to separate petals for a more open look."
