A Saturday Bouquet

IMG_6463
 
The end of Feburary and the beginning of March leave me grumpy. There's the promise of spring, but it feels as though winter may never end. The skies are grey more often than not, and the world seems a bit bleak. While I love a nice rainy day every now and then, I am most certainly someone who thrives on sunshine.

The best cure I've found for the end-of-winter-blues is bunch of flowers. A cheap bouquet from the grocery store, dumped on the table for my sister to arrange.

Ten minutes later I've got sunshine in a weck jar and a smile on my face.

The mess just might be the most beautiful part.

  3. Yes. I'm in northern midwest USA and things are definitely gray (or is it grey?? British spelling?)! Fabulous idea...I think I'll pick up some tulips (my favorite flower, tomorrow!)

  34. Lovely bouquet. I don't do bouquets nowadays. i just take whatever I like from my garden and do single flowers or threes. It helps me to keep my mind on what I'm doing.

    I keep the flowers right next to me while I am working, so a colorful bunch would tend to pull my attention from what I have to do. A single color or single flower keeps my spirit light but allows me to remain focused as well.
