Rose bouquet or Rose bush?

Ok. The Valentines day post  put a thought in my head....

Do you prefer getting a bouquet of roses (or any flower) or an actual rose bush (plant)?

I would rather receive the actual plant rather than just a bouquet. I look at the plant like I look at love. It has roots, it is steady and deep. It has a purpose season after season, it lasts. In order for it to continue to bloom and grow you have to take care of it, spend time on it. And every year if you treat it correctly you are awarded a beautiful gift.  It's consistent. You can admire and cherish it year after year.

A bouquet, however beautiful and stunning. It only shows off it's good qualities. It is like a flash, it's sudden, instantly gratifying, but quickly fades and dies and only leaves a faint memory.

lol. I grew up on a farm. We always had a garden, and lots of flowering plants. Maybe try a hardy plant and practice your hand on it first? Orchids are my favorite flower, but I have such a hard time with them.

I'd prefer the bouquet. I'd love a rose bush, but I have a bit of a black thumb.

My mom always had plants and flowers and they were always beautiful. I'm like cursed or something, I can't even keep a spider plant alive and aren't those easy to take care of? Lol
