I have roses on my workbench. The P.I. of the next door lab grows roses for a hobby, he told me he has 75 different rosebushes. He comes in to work every week with a cart loaded up with buckets and vases full of gorgeous roses, which he proceeds to hand out around the labs and the hospital. So I have two lilac, one pink, one yellow and one sunset colour rose in an erlinmeyer flask on my desk.
It's so lovely that he not only makes a hobby out of growing them, but that part of it is distributing them to everyone he can, spreading the joy.
