Fresh Flowers

This past weekend was a whirlwind of events. And while it seemed to fly by, I made sure to take the time to relax a little on Sunday.  I had stopped at a local market to pick up a few ingredients for dinner and saw the most gorgeous hydrangeas on display.  Realizing that these are probably my favorite flower (I have never been good at remembering flower names), I had to pick up a few.  After arranging the vase to put in the living room, I quickly remembered how wonderful it is to have fresh flowers in the apartment.  It brightens the whole room and makes lounging an even lovelier experience.  While I don't know that I could keep hydrangeas in the apartment year round (they are on the pricey end and tend to wilt pretty quickly), I am going to make an effort to keep fresh flowers in the apartment more frequently.  xx
