A bit of the garden brought home…

What brings a smile to my face during the day? A colorful bouquet of cut flowers. I enjoy picking flowers from the market that are still mostly buds. This means that I can watch them slowly open to their full glory. For me it is a worthwhile splurge on myself. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg
Mums make for long lasting cut flowers. And they are often the least expensive flower in the store. So many layers of petals of many color variations. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg

Living in an apartment and making frequent travels dictate that I no longer tend potted plants indoors. The cut flowers provide a touch of nature that softens and warms any room decor. Occasionaly I splurge on a pot or three of herbs to enhance the room as well as the palate.

Of course adding a rose to a bouquet makes it appear a special treat. Note: the vase was a wedding gift given by my grandmother to my mom’s teacher on her wedding; this teacher, many years later, gave it to me as a wedding gift. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg
