What do New Year’s Resolutions have to do with Garden Tuesday? Nothing really, except that it’s cold. Very cold. We aren’t getting above freezing for 3 days! I know, some parts of the country are way worse than us, but this is the south. I have acclimated to the south. I haven’t gone so far as to say “fahr” for “fire” but I have grown used to a moderate winter.
That’s a round about way to say that I stayed inside for Garden Tuesday this week. If I showed you outside, it would be crunchy grass and frozen birdbaths. But I do have something “gardeny” to show you for Garden Tuesday – this vase of flowers on my dining room table, which finally brings me around to my New Year’s Resolution. I’ve made one simple resolution and that is to have fresh flowers on my table every day. That’s it. In the summer, they will be my flowers from my garden (note to self, buy a package of zinnia seeds), in the winter, the grocery stores. Now, I don’t mean that I’ll buy flowers everyday, I’m pretty cheap and buy the bouquets with mums and daisies, which last forever! This bouquet cost me $4 and it makes happy. I also took a few of the purple mums and put them in little vases on the window sill in my kitchen. Again, it makes me happy. This is four dollars, well spent.
So, how about you? What’s in your garden this week? Or feel free to just link up a pretty picture!
