All through the month of October, I saw this L. M. Montgomery quote on Instagram
and today I thought of the quote as I did my morning chores.
But, my wording would be, "I'm so glad I live in a place where I have fresh flowers all year long."
I love having colorful flowers
to brighten up our outdoor space
and add to the view through our windows.
I am grateful that there are always flowers
in the garden
to use in bouquets.
When colorful flowers are sparse
there is greenery
available to liven up my vignettes.
I can always find flowers in local shops to fill the house with lovely scents -
roses in the dining room,
hydrangeas and freesia in the entry,
and mini roses in the guest room.
I am as content with simple baby's breath
as I am with spectacular roses
and when roses begin to fade,
they are dried so we can continue to enjoy them.
I have only lived in spots where flowers are plentiful so I'm curious -
are you able to enjoy fresh flowers year round?
