I love having fresh flowers in my home. Just one flower in a vase on the table or beside the kitchen sink makes our little home seem just that much more "homey" and cozy. A neighbor gave me a gardenia the other day. I enjoyed it so much that when it died, I wanted to buy some fresh flowers!
Fresh flowers can be costly. Most of the time, I'm able to use flowers or greenery growing in our yard to bring a simple touch of beauty to our home. But once in a while, it's fun to buy a bouquet. Or just a stem or two.
We went to our local florist and asked to buy a few stems. Since they know us there, they allowed us to walk back to the cooler and pick out what we wanted.
I picked out a sunflower and three stems of daisies. Not only do I love daisies, but they also are one of the least expensive flowers and last a good while longer than most.
The cost was $4. Not bad for all this:

In the bathroom:
Nothing fancy, but sure brightens my day!
