February Flowers: Freesia and a Cabbage

February 29, 2012

You may recall that in the early days of 2012 I posted about my to-do list for the year. One of those things was to buy myself flowers every so often 'just because'. Well today, as it was the last day of February, I did just that.

I bought them at a little local store around the corner from my old apartment. It's the neatest flower store I've ever seen - it's not a fancy store, but they do have a walk-in flower refrigerator, and they invite you to walk in and choose your own flowers. I can spend a lot of time mixing and matching all the different blooms, and trying different combinations.

In January I purchased daisies (you can see them atop my new dresser here) and they lasted 3 weeks! I hope these new flowers last at least half as long. In case you're wondering the flowers I purchased are Freesia, purple Statice (I Googled it), and a cabbage. Yup, a cabbage. I know it's a little odd, but I like the colour combination.

As it seems to be developing into a bit of a trend,I think I'm going to try to change my goal from buying flowers every so often, to doing so once a month but with a budget of no more than twenty dollars (today's cost less than $16 with tax). What do you think? Is treating myself to flowers monthly silly and frivolous?
