When I saw this I was shocked! I couldn't believe right away what I saw. My brain tried to get a real answer how a rose could have a q-tips? My hubby saw my reaction, because my eyes get big and I did stare the rose for awhile. A woman saw me too and told me they put q-tips for the petals to open nicely. It was then that my brain slow down hahahahaha I thought roses now could have q-tips!
I remember I took a photo about why they put q-tips and I found it in my archive.
