Okay, so it snowed on Friday. For at least four hours. I thought I was having a nightmare when I first peeked outside. Despite the abysmal weather, my flowers still managed to bloom. If you don’t have any flowers around your yard I highly recommend buying an armful of whatever strikes your fancy at the store and placing them all over your house, pronto! Let’s get this spring back on track.
Make sure you put some in a vase next to your bed. These delicate Lily of the Valley smell like heaven. Kate Middleton had a bouquet of them for her royal wedding. My daughters love the tiny bell shape of each flower. If you would like to plant some, they need a shady spot to grow so the north side of your home would be perfect. Just be aware that they are poisonous so if you have very young children you may want to forgo this idea for the next few years. My cat steers clear of it so she must know it’s bad news.
Or try planting a lilac bush. These smell wonderful too and they are extremely hardy. By hardy, I mean my husband will constantly hit it with the mower and the thing refuses to die. He wasn’t a fan of it initially, but now he realizes it’s not going anywhere.
My husband isn’t a total hater of flowers. He bought these roses for Mother’s Day and they still look as fresh as the day they were cut.
Mother Nature may be the boss who isn’t afraid to show it sometimes, but we can still perk up our moods and our indoor space with some freshly cut blooms.
