I walk past the flower shelves at Trader Joe’s when I go shopping. I love the look and smell of flowers. But they are dead – I get about three or four days out of their beauty and then they are gone. When I was working, the budget allowed for flowers now and then. The being-retired budget does not.
I don’t have much of green thumb either. I was hoping that Georgia had some good soil – but we ended up with five acres of nice red clay hidden beneath an inch of some kind of soil. So I do have silk flowers I use to brighten the place up a bit.
Last week, I just couldn’t resist and I bought tulips at Trader Joe’s. Well, I brought them home and in two days, they were all drooped over vase. But their petals were still so pretty. So, I had an idea – I’ll take photos of them. That will last longer than the petals themselves. Enjoy!
