Hi Everyone. Happy Thursday.
Here are some important members of our family. (L-R): Hazel, Clover, and Riley. Hazel actually lives two blocks over from us, and often comes over for play dates—but she and Clover are sisters. The girls gang up on Riley—he’s low guy in the pack.
Our neighborhood florist sells medium-stem roses for a dollar each, every day. I’ve found a lot of inspiration from other bloggers to find small ways to add beauty and interest to our lives and home, and these dollar roses make a big difference. I now have flowers in the house mostly all the time. It seems even more meaningful during this recession.
Dollar roses in the kitchen. Aren’t the colors fab?
Easter flowers. Five bunches from the grocery store.
You must understand, grocery store flowers are not my first choice. But if it means I can have flowers all the time, I’m going to keep an open mind. And I’ve been surprised at how well some of them last.
Do you have favorite ways to enjoy flowers economically?
