Today is 65 Roses Day. You can read about this organisation & their cause (as well as sponsor/donate) here. This is a terrible disease and although I have no personal experience with it, a work colleague's son was diagnosed with it a few years ago. I've since lost contact with Cobber, but I do think of them often & they remain in my prayers.
You may have seen this idea for lunch tested when we 'Painted the Roses Red' for Alice in Wonderland week last week. I had planned to squeeze 65 Roses into this lunch but having had an off day I settled for 12 food flowers & 53 picks!
However we have had quite a few picks go missing of late at daycare, so I pulled out most of them and just left the flower flower ones.
I made 8 ham & cheese rose sandwiches and 4 ham flowers.
Don't forget to check out the 65 Roses website & support if you can.
