I’m not at all a rose person (give me a peony over any other kind of flower any day), but I can never resist these purply red varieties that look a little wild, not like the perfect bouquets of tight blossoms you see at the florists. I’ve started to put a few flowers in a vase on our dining room table – not an official arrangement, just a blossom or two and it’s really made a difference. Sometimes it’s the small things in your home that make you smile. I could never have flowers out before because of our cat, but now that he’s been gone for a year (more on that later), flowers and plants have made their way into our house again and especially on window sills. I’m happy to say that the new succulents seem to be happy so far.
It’s been a weird warm and muggy week of weather here in NY. No jackets, bare legs and even sandals. I hear much cooler temperatures are headed our way next week and I’m glad.
Fall, let’s get things going, ok?
