Extending the post Valentine’s bliss!

Indeed, Valentine’s Day is a commercialized holiday where people buy lots of disposable stuff and gorge on chocolate, but… I cannot deny the bliss of having flowers around in cold weather. That mid February burst of color can send the winter blues away, even if only for a few days. So, if you received flowers from a friend, partner, family member or bought some for yourself, split your bouquet into smaller arrangements and sprinkle them around your house, even better share them with a neighbor. If you have them already, why not make their beauty last. Next year I’ll make an effort to make the whole affair greener by growing my own flowers. I handmade my cards and I also started with just two zinnias in my hydroponic grower this year and they actually bloomed! Watch out Winter, there will be blooms!
