Friday Flowers

On a recent trip to the grocery store (which you will read more about on Monday) I came across a huge sale in the floral department.  $5 orchids and $3 Gladiolus!  I usually dont have fresh flowers unless it is for a special event-but I think I am going to change that.  There is something about fresh flowers in your home that make everything so lovely-even if there are crushed cheetos under your feet and dirty socks in the corner-the fresh flowers just seem to make all those things disappear!

And the little florist lady told me the secret to watering Orchids: 3 ice cubes placed on top of the dirt once a week. Even I can do that! but keeping my 2 yr old from eating the ice out of the dirt may prove to me a challenge!

Roses, Bells of Ireland & Snapdragons

Have a great weekend!!!  See you Monday!

  1. so pretty! great tip with the ice cubes!

  2. now that’s a steal!! I am a huge fan of keeping fresh flowers in the house at all times (need a flower run today as a matter of fact;) I have three vases that always have flowers and then the rest are orchids. Love them- and I get mine from with my grocery store or Home Depot and I’ve had some last for over a year- now that’s a good investment! I like to take off the little plastic clips and plastic sticks and replace them with a small bamboo stick and tie the orchid to the stick with raffia.
    Enjoy your great finds Amanda!
