Last Friday we hosted some of our neighbor friends for a birthday-anniversary-wedding-graduation celebration (everyone had something to celebrate, except Matt and me, who are simply happy to celebrate the impending arrival of summer). Matt bought us a Trader Joe's bouquet of happy yellow and orange blossoms, and our neighbor Mimi brought us another Trader Joe's bouquet of assorted buds. By this Friday, both bouquets were looking kind of sad, so I employed my favorite trick of salvaging the few good stems and transferring them to smaller vases.
So, here's what we have today:
Keeping the flowers going for another few days is always a nice way to maintain a little color in our home.
