Sometimes at the end of the week, at work,  there are flowers which have past their 
freshness point and although they might not quite make it on the shelf,
They're still good enough for us, at work to take home.
I LOVE flowers in the house!
In the summer months, I bring them in from the garden and have them all over.
Some, I just let the petals fall where they may (especially roses).
Last week I brought a bunch home from the shop and had two gorgeous bouquets.
Which, by the way, are still looking great.
Just inhale these gorgeous lilies and think...
warm meadows...early morning birdsong...tea in the garden...
there you have it....a quick and easy a vase.
If you're feeling snowed in, go buy yourself some flowers.
Guaranteed to make you feel warmer!

I love it! How lucky you are to get to take the sunshine reminders home! They are beautiful. ...Tea in the garden ... that sounds so lovely right now!

This post is just a breath of Spring. The Lily is really beautiful.
It reminds me to buy some flower seeds soon.
