Brrr it’s turned chilly here at Rancho La Zaca, and windy too. As the days shorten and the weather turns, we can create a bright spot anywhere with the One Little Thing of fresh flowers or greenery. If I’ve been away the first thing I do when I return is put flowers in the house. A room with a bloom is a sign of welcome.
You needn’t have a full blown arrangement, or even a plant, though orchids are mighty easy and do last a long time. What about a single blossom with a sprig of ivy on your dresser or by the bath? Or a few posies in a glass on your desk?
What’s available of course depends on the season and where you live, but almost every grocery store nowadays has some kind of fresh flowers – and they’ll do just fine.
Or on your window sill – where the light, while it lasts, will illuminate them – and brighten your view.
