At this time of year, I always begin to get anxious for the arrival of spring. The flowers in the grocery stores beckon to me to please take them home. I start to realize that it seems a long time since I had fresh flowers in the house. Because I grow so many of my own flowers in the summer, it is always difficult for me to justify buying flowers. But the other day, I could resist the urge no longer. I decided we needed some brightness in the house that flowers tend to bring. So without hesitation, I stopped by the flowers at Costco, chose the ones that I wanted, and immediately put them in my cart. I'm so glad that I did. Just looking their direction warms my heart. I just might do the same thing next week.
