After working at school yesterday, I stopped at the grocery store for a few sundries. They had tons of flowers out because Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. I looked at them all because I love cut flowers. If they didn’t feel like such a waste of money, I’d have cut flowers in my house and on my desk at school all the time.
There were lots of roses for sale. I’m not a big fan of roses from the florist. They look unnatural and they don’t smell like anything. I love carnations. They smell great, they come in lots of wonderful colors, and they last a long time in the vase. The store had so many kinds of carnations. When I saw a picotee variety, I couldn’t resist. I put them in my basket. They were only five dollars.
