My husband bought these beautiful, yet unusual colored roses for me a couple weeks after Valentines Day. The florist said they are called Kermit Roses, for obvious reasons I'd say.
A few days later I was in a local antiques store and spotted this white ironstone sugar container and knew it would be perfect for Roses, Peonies, or whatever gorgeous flower happened to be in bloom, so glad I bought it! I cut about 1/2 the stems off the Roses, put them back in water and they've been in bloom ever since. Though a little brown around the edges they seem to be going strong after almost 2 weeks!
Kermit never looked so lovely.
