Spring Flowers


In the words of my best friend Ali, "I know it's spring when Trader Joe's gets their Daffodils in!" and it's so true! Well, it is not spring quite yet, but we have started getting the beautiful Daffodils in and I expect to be buying them a lot as my weekly flowers. They are quite cheap, only like $1.49 for a few stems, and they are so pretty. They give off a lovely sent as well and the color is so cheery! The beautiful white Hydrangea I have here was part of a bigger mixed bouquet that was being thrown out at the end of the night. This bloom was wilting and on it's way out too but I asked to take it home and a little stem snip and some water and its so beautiful! Twice as big as it was before and it's lasting incredibly long! Hydrangea's are my favorite flower, they are so so beautiful, come in so many colors and they dry so beautifully.
I really enjoy getting myself flowers, they look so great by the window in my kitchen and make me so happy every time I see them. The only problem is keeping the cats away from them! Oh, and you can see my wall of flowers drying, all ones I have previously pictured on here. They are right next the that same kitchen window, its become my little flower corner :)

how adorable. i wish i had a place i could get super nice flowers for super cheap! gotta wait 'til i'm back in the city this spring/summer. i too have made a pact to get flowers for myself once a week, there's no delight like it. when i'm stressed or feeling bummed out, i just sniff the flowers and the freshness just makes me feel alive again. ok, i know that seems intense but you know... :) i used to work in a really cool bar and work super late, and by the end of the shift (and a few too many cigarette breaks), i would turn and smell the fresh flowers on the bar that the owner's wife would bring. it would just make me feel human again. gotta love flowers! keep it going!
