Diamonds are forever, and so is this rose (almost)

How does this idea sound? A rose that lasts for an entire year.

Ivory Floral Design in San Antonio, Texas, has developed a special preservation process that keeps the bloom, well, blooming much longer than normal.

“They’re dipped in a magical solution. We can’t tell you what the magical solution is because it’s a secret of course,” co-owner Tuan Lee told “But it’s made up of glycerin, essential oils, some type of plant components. They’ll do it for a few days and then after, the few days you’ll have a beautiful, soft, wonderful rose.”
