Longer Lasting

I have been buying cut flowers almost every week. I like oriental lilies because they smell so good. Sometimes I get carnations. The cut flowers last less than a week, so I end up getting replacement flowers at my next trip to the grocery store.

I decided to try something different this time.

I really like the florist’s mums they sell around this time of year. Their flowers are generally bigger than garden mums. They also have streaks of colors and interesting flower shapes.

The potted plant cost twice as much as my regular cut flowers, but maybe it will last twice as long and I’ll break even.

So Autumn-like...

    It’s weird seeing those colors and yet also trying to remember that it’s really hot where you are. Don’t you want to cozy up with a cup of …. hot cider? … hot tea? … hot …ocean water?

    They are quite stunning. Enjoy them!
