run for the roses

People focus a lot on the hats and ladies’ fashions at the Kentucky Derby, but I am in love with the rose garland that the winner receives! I have a soft spot in my heart for horse racing, so I always get excited for the big races. Saturday is the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby and I will be watching from a trackside television at Woodbine Racetrack here in Toronto (after taking in a day of live thoroughbred racing!).

Here are some ways you can incorporate roses into your Derby Day!
