I love flowers. I love them in the yard. I love annuals and perennials … bulbs and bushes …. vines and, yes, even weeds.
But like most other things I bring into my home, I can’t bring myself to pay full price for flowers.
While shopping at Kroger yesterday, I happened past some flowers marked down. As gorgeous as the dozen deep crimson roses were, I couldn’t bring myself to pick them up. They were $4.99 a dozen and … I just didn’t want to hand over a five dollar bill for flowers.
But, these baby’s breath were only $.99 !! That was an investment I was pleased to make.
As I trimmed down the long legs of these pretty girls, I had a few sprigs that had flowers on them.
Rather than toss the dregs, I stuffed the little shoots into an amber jar on the dining table and promptly filled her with water.
So, there are two spots in my kitchen that are singing summer in crisp white
and my investment was less than a dollar.
For days, I’ll have the opportunity to find joy in the fresh flowers that are brightening the busiest room in my home … and it really makes me happy.
How about you? What makes YOU happy this marvelous Monday?
