In case you missed the red and pink explosions everywhere you turn, Valentine's Day is coming soon. Regardless of your opinion on the holiday, I'm betting we can all agree that roses are one of the most popular (perhaps read: clichéd) presents to receive. I've got nothing against the blossoms, but want to look a little further . . . to the essence.
