I don’t know about you, but I am DONE with winter. The weather is not cooperating, so I’ve decided to make my own Springtime. Although I do keep a few plants on our windowsill, I don’t think I’ve ever purchased flowers “just because”. Which brings me to this weekend… Trader Joe’s on a Sunday is a nightmare, but Will loves their fish nuggets (which I turn into fish tacos), so I braved the crowds to get some for him. In the front of the store, they had these little piles of (what I discovered were) daffodils (I know nothing about flowers and had to read the label). I brought them home, put them in my favorite Anthropologie vases and instantly felt brighter! Now I’m just waiting for them to bloom. Depression will surely set in when they inevitably die BUT they were only $1.49, so I think I’ll just buy them every week =). Lesson of the day: When Mother Nature gives you snow, buy daffodils.
UPDATE: and then… they bloomed =)
