It’s probably horribly superficial of me, but I love flowers – getting them is great, but I don’t care if I buy them myself. I love how they make the kitchen or table seem… happier? Brighter, less like a tinny canned concrete apartment on the 2nd floor. Given the tiny, shade-ridden concrete porch, I can’t really grow many either.
So when I stopped in the Wal-Mart today (since the Wal-Mart sells things nobody else around here does), and there was a big bin of assorted flower bundles marked $4, I happily picked up three bunches, came home and grabbed a cute little pitcher, and arranged them.
All things considered, I’m pretty happy with them, and they look very sunny on my kitchen table. (Or on my desk, since I tend to move them around so I can look at them when I’m going to be in here for awhile…) Also had fun playing with the digital macro function on my camera.
