I adore fresh flowers. When I was younger I lived with my grandma for a short time. I really treasure that time because my grandmother passed away nearly 10 years ago. During the time I spent with her she taught me a lot about the little things that make a home a true home. She had the best flowers, her garden was gorgeous and I spent many hours on the back patio sipping ice tea in deep conversation with her. I remember going out early in the morning and clipping my favorite clippings to display in arrangements inside. I suppose that's why I must have fresh flowers in my home to this day. It's part of my weekly routine along with buying groceries.
