I read a story on TIME about the new 'Blue' roses that will hit the florists in early November in the U.S. and Canada. The rose is called "Applause" from the Japanese company Suntory. Just think...you will be the envy if you receive a dozen of these beauties. Although the sender will need to have deep pockets because the cost will be about $22 to $33 per stem. You're worth it!
