Pampering myself with flowers



Winter in Atlanta this year has been weirdly warm, and who's to complain about temps in the 50s and 60s well into February? So I don't have the excuse of gloomy winter days to buy myself fresh flowers, but I did anyway. And how they've lasted. The gorgeous peachy rose and green hydrangea plant was kind of a splurge at Kroger, but it's lasted in very moderate sunlight for two weeks now.
Same for the mix of white and green cut flowers brought home from Wholefoods a couple of weeks ago. They're in repurposed salsa jars (I love Trader Joe's jars), which fit perfectly in the cute wire holder that was a bargain at $6.
