Happy Valentine's Day!
This post is dedicated to all the wonderful women I've come to know. But mostly to those of you who are freezing & absolutely finished with this cold stuff!
For you, flowers & a far-reaching hug.
If you received flowers for Valentine's Day from an admirer ~ Congratulations!
If not, send him this link from Gardenista to hang on to forever!
If you bought beautiful flowers for yourself ~ which I have been known to do ~ I am so proud of you!
If you received fresh-cut flowers from your best friend's garden, this post is not for you!
Sorry. It's 15 outside with a wind chill of -3!
Trying to stay positive ~
I have to say though that my favorite flowers are cut fresh from the garden.
If you bring me flowers from your garden, I will know the love and dedication that went into growing them with your heart & hands.
That makes them even prettier!
Please note that you don't have to bring flowers. You could simply bring a little bit of green.
Social etiquette reminds us that arriving with flowers for a host or hostess is not a good choice. They'll have to excuse themselves from guests to find a vase, cut the stems & get them in water. I agree in most situations ~ however, if you're planning on coming to my house ~ you can always bring flowers! I have plenty of vases & water & I'll cut the stems the next day.
To my freezing friends, I say ~ hang in there.
To my warm friends too ~
I wish all of you a very Happy Valentine's Day!
These are for you!
