A few weeks back I was driving home from the city centre and there was a stall on the side of road, 'the flower shack', bunches for flowers for $5. I often see it and drive past thinking I should stop and get some fresh flowers especially for $5!!! a bargain. This particular day I did stop and I bought the most gorgeous bunch of non-scented orange lilies, I love lilies and the colour orange. They have lasted so well, even when I have neglected to hydrate them since putting them in the vase...shocking!! they still survived for a good 2 plus weeks.
My orange lilies on their last days, still giving so much joy.
I have enjoyed having fresh cut flowers in the house that today I bought some more as they add cheer to my home on these wet winter days, that seem bleak and grey. I reckon everyone should have fresh flowers in the house they really do bring a smile to your face, and from now on I endeavor to have fresh flowers more often. In the spring/summer hopefully from my own garden but for the winter months I will have to purchase them from 'the flower shack'. So if you see a flower stall stop and buy a colourful bunch to brighten your day and home, they could just be the lift you need to get you through the day.
