Roses

When we weren't out exploring with the Buettners, we were eating.....


 or, playing games.

Another stop we made was a rose plantation tour.  Roses are a huge export here.  We can buy 2 dozen for about $2.50!  So, it was super fun to tour the greenhouses and see rows and rows of roses.  Each greenhouse had 2 different colors.  They also grow them specifically for different countries and their likes.  For example, Russia likes the bulbs to be very large - so they put a netting on them so that they stay closed but grow larger.  Other countries like longer stems and others like certain colors at different times of the year.
