Valentine's Day is looking very.... pink and red.

Sumi ink hearts hand painted with a Chinese brush by Gillian at GCPress.

Twenty two inch tall Japanese Sweet Pea.

Hortense has been festooned.

Bottom has been ribboned and garlanded.

Silk and lavender sachets have been made. Beeswax candle jars from Pod and soy and beeswax candles from Tatine.

Roses haven't come in yet, but this David Austin beauty from last week will be among them.

Dusty Miller, Hydrangea, Gloriosa Lilies and Sweet Pea are up to their necks in fresh water, quietly, slowly hydrating for the Big Event.

Gillian reminds me that I need hydrating too.  Guess I'll plug in the kettle and pull that giant lemon out of the fridge.

I love the sumi hearts. They're like high-class Neccos.

People really fall for this holiday, huh?

I want those roses! so much prettier than the blood red ones that used to be our definition of "red roses". Don't kill yourself - leave time to enjoy the "holiday" yourself!

Yes, Steve, they do!

Steve - drive by on Tuesday afternoon and see for yourself!!! The Sumis are breaking MY heart!

Webb, there will be other red roses, but they'll be pretty too.

Jen - Wish you could smell them!

Jane - right. no need to get there. "There" will get you!
