I love these.


When Ben and I were first married, we went to an art fair and got a print of a flower like this. We've had it on our wall for years. I haven't ever seen them in real life and was wondering if it was some kind of photoshop touch-up of a sunflower or something...

Turns out, they're real! Ben got some for me last fall, just because. (Sweet, huh? I'm so glad I married a husband like that.)

Those suckers turned the water in the vase a hot pink color, no matter how fresh the water was. Within minutes of changing the water, it was hot pink.

Flowers make me so happy. They really can cheer you up. My crocuses are blooming and I could stand out there and stare at them for hours.

Someday when I'm old and rich, I'm going to always have fresh cut flowers on my dining room table. That's what I've decided.

When I'm old and rich I'm always going to have Simply Lemonade in the fridge. It's the bets out there. So of course expensive.

I'm pretty sure they dye these flowers. They stick them in water with dye and as the flower soaks up the water it soaks up the dye and turns the pedals that color - that's why the water always turns that color - the residue from the dye. Interesting eh? I've heard you can do it withother flowers too. One that is really popular to do is gerber daisies.

Those are beautiful!! I love fresh flowers, but we don't have the money. I think that's why I've enjoyed gardening these couple years.
