Don't you love the difference a little pop of color from a floral arrangement makes to brighten up a space? Last year I had the urge to splurge on annual plants at Home Depot and I asked Z to plant them in our unsightly dirt patch in the patio. I am so happy that this year those plants are just starting to yield buds and blooms. I've snipped a few roses from our rose bush and the two hydrangeas that bloomed to make beautiful arrangements in our home.
What's better is that I see more hydrangeas blooming and our lilies are starting to bud as well. Soon I can use those fragrant lilies to fill my empty bud vases.
