Whenever I go to my brother and sister-in-law’s house, they always have fresh flowers. “Three bunches for $12!” is what my sister-in-law, Sarah always says. $12 is a very small price to pay for a month’s worth of fresh, living decor. I told myself, as soon as I had a steady income, I would start buying flowers every month.
Well guess what? I now have flowers!
I bought two bunches of carnations and a bunch of “florist selects,” essentially a grab bag of small flowers like yellow daisies and kermit mums. I bought the carnations because, if there’s anything I’ve learned from the folks over at YHL, it’s that carnations are the best flower for the budget-minded, once-a-month shopper.
I’m hoping the more months that go by with the purchase of flowers, the better I will get at floral arrangements.
And perhaps that my photo documentation of them will get easier.
