I’d Rather Have Flowers…
I love getting flowers. In months where the sky is grey and the ground is muddy or frozen, blooms bring some much-needed sunshine into the house. On days where the sun is shining long into the evening and the garden is a-buzz with bees, I fill up every vase in the vicinity with a handful of freshly-cut stems. There really is no bad time to bring me flowers.
I wear some jewelry, sometimes. Maybe when I’m going out on the town or I find a bracelet that goes perfectly with my gardening gloves. Once I don the bling, however, I forget all about it.
If you would like to have this quote for your mobile device, or maybe even as an 8×10 print, you can download them here:
The flowers I set on my desk while I work make me smile throughout the day. They smell heavenly and they draw me in for a closer sniff. Do peach-colored tulips smell a bit like peaches? According to my completely non-scientific, biased opinion, YES! Yes, they do smell like peaches.
Diamonds are beautiful, but they don’t smell like peaches and they don’t make me want to take 300 photos of them when the light is streaming in the window just so. So, yeah, I’d rather have flowers on my table than diamonds on my neck. You said it, Emma!
